About City

Lisbon is the capital and the largest city of Portugal, being the 11th-most populous urban area in the European Union. It is continental Europe's westernmost capital city and the only one along the Atlantic coast. Lisbon lies in the western Iberian Peninsula on the Atlantic Ocean and the River Tagus. The westernmost area of its metro area is the westernmost point of Continental Europe. Lisbon is recognised as a global city because of its importance in finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts, international trade, education and tourism. It is one of the major economic centres on the continent, with a growing financial sector and one of the largest container ports on Europe's Atlantic coast. The motorway network and the high-speed rail system of Alfa Pendular link the main cities of Portugal. The city is the 7th-most-visited city in Southern Europe, after Istanbul, Rome, Barcelona, Madrid, Athens and Milan.

Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, and the oldest in Western Europe, predating other modern European capitals such as London, Paris and Rome by centuries. 

The city of Lisbon is rich in architecture; Romanesque, Gothic, Manueline, Baroque, Modern and Postmodern constructions can be found all over Lisbon. Alongside its major historical sites, Lisbon offers a diverse range of top attractions – world famous buildings, museums, city parks, cabaret theatres, festivals and of course plenty of shopping opportunities.

Lisbon is famous for its city attractions, which includes Jeronimos Monastery, Belem tower, Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, Parque Das Nacoes, Berardo Museum, Madre De Deus Convent, The World's Most Expensive Chapel, Ancient Art Museum, Design & Fashion Museum.
