On the banks of the River Tagus

Situated on the north banks of the River Tagus, the charm of Lisbon exists in its strong links to the past; renovated palaces, magnificent churches and an impressive castle mirror the city's rich cultural heritage. Its eclectic blend of neighborhoods, culture and architecture distinguish this capital city uniquely from the other European capitals and make it a truly fascinating and comprehensive city to visit.

A city set on seven hills, as the legend tells, with its cobble stoned pavements and narrow streets full ofthings to discover, but there is also the new to enjoy, we spent some time in the new area of the city, "Parque das Nações", built in 1998 to host the world expo, this area is today a very pleasant are to walk and relax!
