LISBOA INVITES YOU!

One of Europe’s most ancient capitals, Lisbon’s relaxed charm and cultural vibrancy have made itone of Europe’s go-to destinations. 

Lisbon always offers something special to its visitors and however many descriptions you have read, you will only know which Lisbon is yours once you have arrived here. We will lend the climate, colors, gastronomy, history, diverse culture life and the breathtaking landscape in the surroundings to your visit.
Lisbon is a city of light. Combined with the almost constant presence of sunshine, the river Tagus transforms the Portuguese capital into a mirror of a thousand colors – reflecting the cultural richness of Portugal’s history in the city’s beauty and unique architecture.

Lisbon is the capital city and largest city of Portugal with a population of 547,631 within its administrative limits on a land area of 84.8 km2. The urban area of Lisbon extends beyond the administrative city limits with a population of over 3 million on an area of 958 km2, making it the 9th most populous urban area in the European Union. About 2,831,000 people live in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area (which represents approximately 27% of the population of the country). Lisbon is recognised as a global city because of its importance in finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts, international trade, education, and tourism. It is one of the major economic centres on the continent, with a growing financial sector and the largest/second largest container port on Europe’s Atlantic coast. Lisbon enjoys a Mediterranean climate. Among all the metropolises in Europe, it has the warmest winters, with average temperatures 15 °C (59 °F) during the day and 8 °C (46 °F) at night from December to February. The typical summer’s season lasts about six months, from May to October, although also in November, March and April temperatures sometimes reach around 20 °C (68.0 °F).

Lisbon’s public transport network is extremely far-reaching and reliable. The Lisbon Metro as its main artery, connecting the city centre with the upper and eastern districts, and now reaching the suburbs. Ambitious expansion projects will increase the network by almost one third, connecting the airport, and the northern and western districts. Bus, funicular and tram services have been supplied by the Companhia de Carris de Ferro de Lisboa (Carris), for over a century.

Not to miss in Lisbon

  • Baixa (downtown) – the busy financial and shopping area. Praça do Comércio, the magnificent «Black Horse» Square with its Triumphal Arch facing the River Tagus, the Cathedral, the City Hall, the Carmo Convent, etc.
  • Alfama – charming ancient Moorish quarter with narrow winding streets and picturesque white washed houses. On top of the hill is the St. Jorge’s Castle from where you have fantastic view over the city and the river Tagus.
  • Bairro Alto – a typical “quarter” in the city centre where the nightlife is lively and where you will find some of the more famous Fado houses, where Fado (the traditional “blues” of Lisbon) is performed.
  • Belém – the westernmost part of the city, known for its UNESCO world heritage monuments and other important and emblematic buildings (Tower of Belém, Jerónimos Monastery, Discovery’s Monument, Cultural Centre, Royal Coaches Museum, Ajuda Royal Palace and the Presidential Palace). This area is also appreciated by the local inhabitants for its leisure and recreational areas. It was from the Belém river shore, near its graceful Tower (1515), that the ships of Vasco da Gama and other famous explorers set sail.
  • Parque das Nações (Nations Park) – this was the site of the world Expo’98, leaving its legacy of avant-garde architecture along the river Tagus to Lisboa.  The area is today a residential area including some spectacular constructions such as the Vasco da Gama Tower, the old oil refinery Galp Tower, the Pavilhão de Portugal (designed by the awarded Portuguese architect Siza Vieira), the Oceanarium and the superb “Atlantico Dome” – Lisbon’s multipurpose hall for sports, shows, meetings and exhibitions.
  • Mini Cruise Tagus River – A mini cruise is a real must as its offers a complete view over the city. Centuries of history will emerge from its monuments scattered along the hills always with a window open to the river.
