Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and the country´s biggest city located on the estuary of the Tagus River (Rio Tejo), on the European Atlantic coast. It is continental Europe´s westernmost capital. Derived from Latin roots, Portuguese is the third most spoken European language in the world. Around 3 million people live in the Lisbon region with around 600.000 living in capital itself.
Lisbon is a historical city full of stories to tell, where the sun shines 290 days a year and the temperature rarely drops below 15C°. A city where you feel safe wandering around day or night, where the cuisine is dedicated to creating over a thousand ways to cook the beloved “bacalhau” (salted cod), and where there are hotels and restaurants to suit every taste, budget and requirement. Lisbon is a city full of authenticity where old customs and ancient history intermix with cultural entertainment and hi-tech innovation. Lisbon is ageless, but it loves company, as you’ll find out if you meet someone and ask them to explain, with lots of gestures and repetition, where the best place is to listen to Fado. After all, Lisbon is famous for its hospitality and the family-like way it welcomes visitors.
