About Lisbon

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is situated on the north bank of the Tagus River, on Europe’s Atlantic coast.  It is the westernmost city in continental Europe but its location in the centre of Portugal makes exploring the country, and beyond, simple – it is only around 300 km to the resorts of the Algarve in the south and around 400 km to the northern border with Spain. 

Lisbon offers the visitors a wide variety of sights and activities, including scenic countryside, breath-taking  mountains, areas of historical interest and some of the best beaches in Europe, all just a few kilometers from the city centre. The city is extremely safe and tourist friendly - in 2019 Lisbon was named Europe's Leading City Break Destination.

In addition to mainland Portugal the country also includes the Atlantic islands of Madeira and the Azores, famous for their charm as well as their food and drink.  Portugal is one of the oldest countries in Europe, where outstanding monuments, castles and churches have been joined by futuristic new buildings, advanced technology and a vibrant and forward thinking population. Portugal is a country where old-world charm meets modern facilities and convenience, and has long been a favourite destination for the discerning tourist.
