Lisbon captivates visitors with its cosmopolitan atmosphere. Is an illuminated city, he almost uninterrupted presence of sunshine and the Tagus River transforms the city into a mirror of a thousand colors, highlighting the city’s unique architecture and beauty.
Stretching over seven hills next to the Tagus river, is an irresistible invitation to discover and experience the city with a relaxed and leisurely walk, taking breaks at the various sightseeing spots along the way. The viewpoints of Graça, Senhora do Monte, Santa Luzia, São Jorge Castle or São Pedro de Alcântara, among others, are just some of the scenic spots of Lisboa, where you can admire the most beautiful panoramic views of the Portuguese capital.
As we walk through Lisboa – whose history spans back thousands of years – we find streets filled with heritage monuments, as the Jerónimos Monastery, the Belém Tower, numerous Palaces, the Castle, the Catedral, just to list some of them, and characteristic neighborhoods, as Alfama, Mouraria, Rossio, Chiado, Bica, Bairro Alto and Principe Real, among others, where the city first developed and can still be experienced at its most genuine level.
Being the capital, it has attracted rural population which brought with them their gastronomic traditions from the provinces. It has also attracted people from its old colonies, making it today a notably multicultural city.
Lisboa is also home of the famous “Pastél de Nata” that can be tasted all around the city in each cafe, or in its original place, the Fábrica dos Pastéis de Belém.
