Lisbon, on the western edge of Europe where the land meets the Atlantic Ocean, has always attracted travels from far and wide due to the richness of its Portuguese Heritage. It is one of the oldest cities in the world, and the oldest in Western Europe.
Lisbon offers all the delights you would expect of Portugal's star attraction, yet with half the fuss of other major capital cities. Gothic cathedrals, majestic monasteries and quaint museums are all part of the colourful cityscape, but the real delights of discovery lie in wandering the narrow lanes of Lisbon's lovely backstreets. Just outside Lisbon there is more to explore: the magical setting of Sintra, glorious beaches and traditional fishing villages. The laid back atmosphere of this historical capital makes it an ideal retreat for sun and culture lovers.
