Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and the center of a multifaceted region that appeals to different tastes and senses.
In a city that has been receiving many different cultures coming from far and wide distances over time, today you can still feel the breath of a village in every historic neighborhood. We can walk through the grid of streets in Baixa Pombalina that opens to the Tagus in Praça do Comércio and, following the river, discover some of the most beautiful places in the city: the monumental area of Belém with World Heritage monuments, medieval neighborhoods, and also more recent or contemporary leisure facilities, such as the Parque das Nações or the Docks.
Continuing near the mouth of the river, we will understand why it is said that Lisbon is the center of a vast resort. Along the marginal road we will visit beaches and seaside resorts that combine villas and hotels from the beginning of the 19th century. XX with marinas, terraces and modern sports equipment, with particular emphasis on golf and recreational boating. Following the coast we will find world renowned surf spots, but also the palaces scattered around the cultural landscape of Sintra, a World Heritage Site.
Both north and south of the capital, the great variety of landscapes and heritage is always within walking distance. With beaches, natural parks, cultural routes and accommodation for all tastes, it is difficult to escape the Lisbon region on a visit to Portugal.
Fado is another Portuguese expression also elevated to World Heritage. Therefore, dining in a fado house will be another experience not to be missed. And then we still get together in lively bars and clubs, where we celebrate with a glass the arrival of those who visit us.
