Located on the right bank of the Tagus river, near its mouth, Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world and the oldest city in Western Europe.
The strong presence of the river reflects a white light that is admired by everyone and is known for inspiring writers, poets, photographers and film-makers throughout its history. Its historical centre is formed by seven hills, which you can explore on foot, tram or funicular. One of the advantages of the Portuguese capital is the Mediterranean climate, making it easier and more pleasant to visit during the whole year.
