About this location
The Estremadura region
Few cities have such a magnificent setting or possess such a genuine, rich and varied cultural identity as Lisbon.
It has emerged from its dormant 20th century as a proud and confident new city with a singular style, and with its historic fabric intact (especially the remnants of its golden age of world exploration), but it's also going through a renaissance not seen since the years after the cataclysmic 1755 earthquake.
While most European capitals were largely destroyed in WWII and subsequently rebuilt, Lisbon's neutrality left it untouched, but that also means that the city hasn't had massive renovation since the post-earthquake years of the 18th century. Its oldest districts now look like romantic ruins, but the city is waking up to its unique charm and atmosphere, and slowly renovating.
Locals and foreigners are being seduced by the beautiful views and by the dazzling patterns of tiles and cobblestones, investing in new cafés, shops, boutique hotels and restaurants.
While a new infectious energy hangs in the air, let yourself be romanced by what has always been there - a truly hypnotic and authentic city.
Lisbon's most impressive attraction is the city itself. It is a monument to the romance of the past, and an aesthetically seductive place that forces contemplation in every one of its hills.
Eastern Lisbon used to be an ugly industrial area until it was chosen as the site to host the last world fair of the 20th century, Expo 98. It has since then reborn into a futuristic glass-and-steel district, home to some wonderful examples of modern architecture.
One of them is Oriente Station, a landmark with the signature of Santiago Calatrava, while Pritzker-award winning architect Alvaro Siza Vieira is the man behind the fantastic Pavilhão de Portugal known for its remarkable undulating roof.
Many of the other constructions have an ocean theme (the twin towers São Gabriel and São Rafael resemble ships and are named after two of Vasco da Gama's vessels), and there is also one of the world's most spectacular aquariums nearby.
Everywhere you turn is a glimpse of the river looking like an ocean crossed by Europe's longest bridge, water volcanos erupting, wave-shaped benches, exotic greenery, public art by Portuguese and international artists, cable cars overlooking it all, and an unashamedly avant-garde side of Lisbon much different from its old historical center.
