Set on a series of seven hills, Lisbon is the colourful, cultural and cosmopolitan capital of Portugal. Its ancient maritime history brims with a sense of adventure, which flows back from the River Tagus into the heart of the city’s narrow cobblestone streets and astonishing mix of architecture.
Lisbon is one of the most diverse capitals in Europe, with each unique district offering delightful sites to see and experience. From museums devoted to ancient and modern art and renovated castles offering a look back in time, to shopping in the malls or markets and enjoying an energetic nightlife, Lisbon offers something new every day.
