Lisbon cityscape

A historic maritime city, welcoming modern explorers

Europe’s westernmost capital is probably also its most stunningly sited, on hilly ground in a bend of the River Tagus where it broadens out into a giant bay. Writers rave about Lisbon’s unique light; modern tourists also warm to the mild climate and relaxed feel of its summer nights, when the bars' patrons spill out onto cobbled streets. Centuries of maritime exploration have also left a rich artistic heritage.
