Teams must fly to Lisbon, Portugal. Upon arrival, teams must travel by taxi to Martim Moniz Square and take a tram to Miradouro das Portas do Sol to receive their next clue.

Teams must figure out the painting they have received is of the National Coach Museum, to find their next clue.

Choice A: Tiles
Teams would have to put together a life-size puzzle using porcelain tiles. Once the puzzle is complete, the tile master will give them their next clue.

Ally & Ashley, Brandon & Adam, Leo & Jamal, Nicky & Kim, and Tim & Marie chose this task.

Choice B: Miles
Teams would have to first retrieve a giant-sized compass at the Jerónimos Monastery and then use it to map out the distance traveled by Ferdinand Magellan on his famed voyage on the large map at Padrão dos Descobrimentos; connecting Seville, the Canary Islands, the Cape Verde Islands, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Solis, the Strait of Magellan, Puka-Puka, San Pablo Island, the Mariana Islands, and the Philippines, with San Pablo Island and Mariana Islands markers on the opposite side of the map, leaving teams to realize that travel between the two was a straight line restarted at the other side of the map. Once teams are within 500 nautical miles of the correct answer of 16,500 nautical miles, a Magellan impersonator would give them their next clue.

Jason & Amy, Nicole & Travis, and Tim & Danny chose this task.

Chester & Ephraim fell too far behind the other teams and were eliminated after they arrived at Lisbon Portela Airport.

Teams must travel by taxi to Clube Português de Tiro a Chumbo in Monsanto Forest Park to find their next clue

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to put on a suit of armor and then use a ballista to fire an arrow through a shield 150 feet away. Once successful, the knight would retrieve their shield which has their next clue on the back.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Chester & Ephraim fell too far behind the other teams and were eliminated after they arrived at Lisbon Portela Airport.
