Lisbon, Portugal
LISBON AT A GLIMPSE

Lisbon Portugal - the westernmost capital of mainland Europe with an unusual mix of the old and the new.

Pay tribute to the town standing on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean that is home to the world's most significant voyages and greatest explorers: Vasco da Gama, Magellan and Prince Henry the Navigator.

Not only is Lisbon the picturesque capital of Portugal, but it also bears the title of Europe's second-oldest capital after Athens. What is more, Lisbon was the first actual “world” city - the head of an empire that spread over all continents, including South America and Asia.

Contemporary travelers will find a lot to discover in this spectacular city built on hills as its history falls thousands of years back, incredible views open from every angle, and most of its streets possess monumental gems.

Get lost in the city’s white-bleached limestone buildings, intimate alleyways, parks, gardens and easy-going charm. Here are some must-sees for exploration:
  • The World Heritage - Belem Tower
  • Jeronimos Monastery
  • Cristo Rei (similar to the Christ statue in Rio de Janeiro, this 100 meter tall statue stands on the opposite bank of the Tejo River from downtown Lisbon)
  • Ponte Vasco da Gama (longest bridge in Europe)
Experience the pleasure of being in Lisbon.
