Project Description

Lisbon

Lisbon is a fascinating magical place. Spreading on seven hills north the estuary of Rio Trejo, it offers a unique variety of images to the visitor. The charm of the city of Vasco da Gama exists in its strong links to the past.

Lisbon City View

Set against the ever-present backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean, this dainty sun-kissed city lives in a Latin fairytale of timeworn manners and traditions. Elétricos (trams) clank through the streets, and blue-and-white azulejos adorn churches, restaurants, and fountains.

Strolling around the hilly city, you will encounter miradouros (vantage points) for spectacular river and city views. The oldest part of the city, Alfama, sits below the spectacularly sited Moorish Castelo de São Jorge, its ruined walls facing another hill, the Bairro Alto famous for its vibrant nightlife. The palm-lined Avenida da Liberdade is the main artery inland, rising to the green slopes of the city’s central Parque Eduardo VII. Walking away from the centre, you can see the fantastic art collection of the Museu Gulbenkian, Museu de Arte Antiga and the modern art of the Berardo Collection.
