Lisbon, given its privileged location, with a mild climate and surrounded by the Tagus River, is one of the oldest cities in Western Europe where you can find archaeological remains dating back to Neolithic times. Since then, Phoenicians, Romans, Moors, Celts, and many others occupied its territory, which left us a valuable national heritage through monuments and historic neighbourhoods.
After the earthquake of 1755, the capital’s urban plan was reconfigured through the visionary architecture and urbanism of Marquês de Pombal. Its beautifully symmetrical streets and squares contrast with the maze-like Alfama and other older districts of the city.
From the traditional Portuguese music (Fado) to international sports and music events, from museums to playhouses, from Moorish fortifications to Pombaline urbanism, from castles to monasteries to futuristic buildings of steel and glass, from the Mediterranean cuisine to conventual sweets and traditional pastries, from the mix of nationalities that live in the city, Lisbon is distinguished by having an intense cultural life full of historical and contemporary attractions, making it one of the most cosmopolitan capitals of Europe.
TRAVELLING TO LISBON
Lisbon’s main airport is Portela International Airport.
From the airport, the subway runs every 5 mins to downtown and the journey takes about 15 minutes. There are buses every 15 minutes to Chiado or you can get a taxi from the airport to the city centre (about 10/15 euros).
International trains arrive in Lisbon every day, mainly to Santa Apolónia Station and to the Gare do Oriente. Estação Santa Apolónia opened on May 1st, 1865. It is the oldest railway terminus in Lisbon, situated in the city’s central part on the bank of the Tagus river in the historical district of Alfama.
