Lisboa

Lisbon is 1 hour distance by car and 1h 35m by bus to the city of Peniche.

Besides being the capital of the country, Lisbon is also the largest city of Portugal.

Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in Europe. It was founded more than three thousand years ago. Together with Setúbal, Alcácer do Sal and some cities in the Algarve, Lisbon is the oldest in Portugal and also the second oldest capital of the European Union, after Athens, older than Rome by four centuries.

Its history evolves around the city’s strategic position at the mouth of the largest river in the Peninsula Ibérica (Portugal and Spain), the Rio Tejo. Its natural port gives the best conditions for the ships that trade between the North Sea and the Mediterranean sea.

Because of its history Lisbon is also equally rich in monuments worth visiting. You have the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, the Torre de Belém, the Aqueduto das águas livres, the Castelo de S. jorge, the igreja da Basilica da Estrela, etc.

But the city of Lisbon is not just history, it is also modernity. It was already the European Capital of Culture, received the announcement ceremony of the new 7 wonders of the world, received the opening ceremony of Euro 2004, held the Expo 98 and is where one of the world’s largest aquariums was built, etc.

But Lisbon is also a fun city with great animation and good food in many and several restaurants in town, for all ages, tastes and budgets. If you like to go out at night you have many possibilities, with many bars, discos, cinemas, theatres, etc.
