Learn About This Location
Spread across the hills overlooking the Rio Tejo, Lisbon has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. Its vistas showcase the city in all its beauty: Roman and Moorish ruins, magnificent cathedrals, and grand plazas lined with cafes. But the real discovery is found in the narrow cobblestone lanes.
While trams pass through tree-lined streets, lisboetas stroll the lamplit old quarters as they’ve done for centuries, or gossip over fresh bread and wine at a patio restaurant with fado singers performing in the background. Lisbon reveals its youthful alter ego at bohemian bars and clubs in other parts of town.
