Lisbon is Portugal’s capital city. Overlooking River Tagus, the longest river on the Iberian Peninsula, it is lovingly called “Cidade das Sete Colinas” (“Seven Hill City”). In addition to its hills, Lisbon is also known for the typical Portuguese food, cobbled streets, history and nice welcoming people.
With an outstanding Mediterranean climate, where the sun shines 290 days per year and the temperature rarely drops below 15ºC, this coastal city is one of the oldest cities in Europe.
Here you can find ancient ruins, cathedrals, churches, museums, castles and monuments that evoke centuries of rich History and culture.
Nonetheless, today Lisbon is a global modern city, being the administrative and financial centre of Portugal, in addition to its importance in the fields of art, entertainment, economy and commerce, international financial trade and tourism.
