API students participate in excursions designed to help familiarize them with the culture and surrounding areas of their host city and country. The following is a listing of potential excursions for API Lisbon programs. API may need to modify the excursions offered in a given term due to travel restrictions or health and safety concerns.

  • Évora

    The preserved UNESCO World Heritage City of Évora dates from Roman times and has a rich and vast history. Évora, located in the south central part of Portugal in the Alentejo region, is known for its whitewashed buildings that line its narrow streets, along with delicious outdoor places and remarkable historic sites. Walking through the streets of Évora is like flipping through a history book where you can see remnants of its past everywhere you look, including a Roman temple dating back to the 1st century BC, a 13th century cathedral and the 16th century Chapel of Bones.

  • Sintra

    Following a short train ride from Rossio Station in Lisbon, students will tour the magnificent National Palace of Sintra, the best preserved medieval Royal Palace in Portugal. Following a tour of the manor house and gardens of the romantic nineteenth-century Quinta da Regaleira estate, the group will enjoy lunch in the unique ambiance of Sintra’s restaurants (with traditional regional pastries). An afternoon walk around the Castle of the Moors, on the heights above town with excellent views of the coast, completes this trip.

  • Mafra

    King Jõao V paid for the enormous baroque and neoclassical palace and monastery at Mafra with colonial Brazilian gold in the eighteenth-century; construction took more than thirty years and, at its peak, the project employed up to 45,000 workers. The palace (which inspired Portuguese Nobel laureate José Saramago to write his novel, Baltasar, and Blimunda) includes a magnificent library, which encapsulated all knowledge of the age, and a sumptuous basilica.
