About Lisbon

The “White City”

Lisbon is Europe’s West Coast capital and the closest gateway to Africa and the Americas. It is also known as the white city, for its unique luminosity. The light, the atmosphere and the Atlantic climate, blended with Mediterranean influences, with warm sunny winters and cool summers, contribute altogether to offer a unique experience for each visitor. Facing the Atlantic Ocean, Lisbon is surrounded by some of the best beaches in Europe as well as some tourist and historical hallmarks such as Estoril and Sintra. Lisbon is one of the safest cities in Europe, enchanted with historical marks, and offering a dynamic business center with a distinctive international orientation.

Fraught with historical landmarks, Lisbon was the birthplace, in the 15th century, of one of mankind’s most exciting sagas of discovery - the era of maritime exploration that led to the discovery of the New World, the charting of new routes for trade and travel, and the enduring connection between cultures, climes and civilizations. Portugal’s past as a nation of explorers and pioneers, forerunners in trade and in international contacts is known the world over, and the history of the city of Lisbon is the history of all the continents combined.

With its unique legacy, Lisbon has embraced the new world of the 21st century. The city is a dynamic result of its proud past and its vibrant, cosmopolitan present, alive with non-stop cultural events, a vibrant nightlife and renewed architectural verve. Visiting Lisbon is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience a unique combination of history and modernity. It is a city with an international flavour with a population made up of different races, different backgrounds and different cultures where everyone feels welcomed. Lisbon won in 2010 the World Travel Award of Europe´s Leading City Break Destination.
