Welcome to Lisbon

Lisbon is the westernmost European capital. It is set on a series of hills overlooking the estuary of the river Tejo and its channel connection to the ocean. It is becoming increasingly popular, but it still keeps its charm and it is not yet ruined by mass tourism. The biggest attraction is the city itself, best enjoyed by walking on the various districts of the city center, entering in the occasional church, museum, or pastelaria (serving both savoury and sweet snacks and coffee). Also, the combined effect of 2786 sunshine hours (annual average), limestone pavement, light coloured or tiled façades, the reflecting river and the ocean breeze, produces the famed Lisbon Light.   lisboa-image lisbon at youtube
