Lisbon is a special city with unique features: the sound of old trams going up and down the cobbled streets, the echo of Fado music in various places of the city, an authentic treasure of historic buildings, but also the coolest city of Portugal.
Lisbon was originally built on seven hills and stretches along the Tagus River in a rolling landscape filled with Art buildings, magnificent monuments, numerous museums, fabulous terraces and beautiful viewpoints.
Filled with history and culture, Lisbon is known for its unique luminosity and incomparable charm. It has become one of Europe’s favorite destinations thanks to its incredible diversity, magnificent scenery and enviable sunny weather. All of the city’s sights retain a touch of tradition. Lisbon has preserved its old beauty and charm, whether in the streets filled with flower vendors or roasted chestnuts, splendid tiled buildings and emblematic pastries. As capital of Portugal, it was also here that some of the most influential moments of Portuguese History took place.
The oldest part of this beautiful area is the Rossio, known for its shoemakers, historical theaters and the variety of cafes and restaurants. Stroll through the dynamic Rua Augusta and go to the majestic Praça do Comércio – one of the most famous squares in Europe and the place where some of Lisbon’s oldest cafes are located. Do not forget to climb the Elevador de Santa Justa to contemplate the city from above and go through the small open air markets and watch the street performers.
