Lisbon, the capital of Portugal since the 13th century, stretches along the North bank of the Tagus estuary on the European Atlantic Coast, comprising just 600,000 inhabitants. It is favoured by mild weather all year round where the sunshine is almost a constant feature.
The river’s vicinity, which grants it a unique light, along with a rich historical background merged with modern trends, have turned Lisbon into one of the most diverse and soulful metropolises.
Lisbon has become, throughout the years, a major economic centre firmly emphasised by its port activities and extremely competitive prices.
The city’s strategic location has long been a gateway of opportunity to shorten distances between continents. Lisbon’s international airport, the biggest one in Portugal – around 15 million passengers per year – is located within the city limits, providing maximum comfort to its users.
Favoured by the Tagus estuary’s natural conditions, which meets the ocean just a couple of km to the west, Lisbon has also been steadily growing as a relevant European port of call for cruise companies, being the only capital in the continent to offer a multitude of backgrounds for a wide range of authentic experiences “just around the corner”, meaning at close distance from the city centre.
Location and diversity.
Lisbon is unmissable!
