Lisbon, capital city of Portugal

Lisbon is the capital of Portugal, a city composed of seven hills facing the mouth of the Tagus River, with a history marked by monarchies, by the time of the discoveries, and by the reconstruction of the city after the 1755 earthquake. Lisbon is known for the excellence of natural light, for the security of Portugal, classified by the “Global Peace Index” as one of the safest countries in the world.
Lisbon is a European capital that has maintained its neighborhood characteristics, with habits of social proximity in the most traditional neighborhoods of the city, to greet its neighbors and strangers with a “good morning”.

What to do in Lisbon

The best way to get to know Lisbon during the day is to walk the streets of downtown, visit the historic monuments, observe the architecture, enter the shops and historic cafés of Baixa and Chiado, walk down Rua Augusta to Praça do Comércio / Terreiro do Paço, and observe the river near Caís das Colunas. Here we can then walk up to Alfama, or by “tram” tram, visit the Castle, the Graça neighborhood, pass through Mouraria and descend to Martin Moniz, Praça da Alegria, and find the luxury of Avenida da Liberdade … Return to Terreiro do Paço, travel on the Lisbon tram or bus, in just 20 minutes to Belém, where we find the Jerónimos Monastery, the Belém Tower, and many other attractions.
At dusk we can visit one of Lisbon’s many viewpoints to enjoy the sunset, listen to fado at Moraria, in Alfama or enjoy the bohemian life of Bairro Alto’s bars and restaurants.
To appreciate Lisbon’s modernism, we head to Parque das Nações, where we find a modern Lisbon, restored since 1998, with contemporary buildings, gardens and parks, the MEO Arena Pavilion, the Oceanarium, the Casino, the Shopping Mall and much more.
