Experience Lisbon

Article's tools:

The capital of Portugal is the only one in Europe where the sun sets over the sea. Lisbon is a city of contrasts where history and modernity are to be found standing hand in hand on the banks of the River Tagus.

One of the most memorable places is Belém. This is an area full of monuments where modern buildings have successfully joined together with the uniquely Por¬tuguese Manueline architecture classified as World Heritage. Here you will find some excellent museums, such as the Coach Museum, and the remarkable collection of contemporary art at the nearby Berardo Collection Museum.

Walking through Alfama or Mouraria you will eventually arrive at the Castle with its fabulous view over the river and sea. Stay there for a while to watch the sunset and then enjoy dinner in the typical atmosphere of a fado house. Next, round your night off in another of Lisbon's historic quarters, Bairro Alto, or at one of the riverside bars and discos, so lively and cosmopolitan that they have helped make Lisbon one of the most fashionable European cities.

Steeped in history, Lisbon is famous for its tile-covered facades and the stunning views from the tops of its seven hills. You can ride through its historic quarters in a tram or just soak up the city's special atmosphere on the terrace of one of its many cafés. But you should also try and discover the new area of the Parque das Naăőes, the Gulbenkian Museum and Gardens, or Lisbon's modern underground stations.

Lisbon has top-quality hotels and restaurants, where you can sample a real gourmet menu. But do not leave the city without tasting the famous cream tarts known as "pastéis de Belém" or without enjoying a cruise on the river. You will take back with you fond memories of Lisbon's beautiful light and its skyline of rooftops and domes, one of the few European cities that combines both river and sea.
