Portugal's hilly capital, the coastal city of Lisbon is the westernmost capital of Europe. Colourful and historic, the city is teeming with life in every corner, and every person and structure has a story to tell that will reveal secrets to the lively Portuguese culture. Lisbon's culture and history mix with the contemporary urban life and cosmopolitan nature in a unique way to produce one of the most interesting experiences across Western Europe.
The landscape of Lisbon is truly exotic, comprising of both hills and golden sand beaches. The city has colour busting out of every turn, made even more quaint with its cobblestone streets. The hill of Lisbon is topped of with the beautiful San Jorge Castle, displaying elegant European architecture, a sign of pride to all the residents of the city. Belem Tower and Jeronimos Monastery are other fine examples of the marvellous architecture that can be found all over the city. While it is easy to get lost in the awe-inspiring architecture of the city, Lisbon also has much in store to amaze you with through as a cultural wonderland. The National Azulejo Museum and the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum complex are perfect to witness the evolution of Portuguese history, culture and art. It is also the city where you can hear the best of Fado music. One thing you cannot miss out on in this city is the mouthwatering range of food, specifically seafood. You should definitely find yourself a nice spot by the beach as you sit down with a delicious plate of Balchau, a traditional Portuguese seafood dish that will leave you wanting more.
