Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is located on the edge of Europe on the Atlantic coast. It is a vibrant city with beautiful architecture, a sense of freedom, interesting urban locations, and delicious national cuisine.

What can tourists expect in Lisbon and what should they do in the capital of Portugal? Wyandotte Daily tells about it.

Synergy of the old world with the modern one

In Lisbon, you should visit the atmospheric Alfama district, where you can see narrow streets and bright Moorish-style houses. In addition, you can find the São Jorge Castle, which plays a significant role in the history of the city and serves as the city's pearl.

Flavor diversity

This year could be the year of gastronomic exploration. Portuguese cuisine can offer a wide variety of spicy seafood dishes and lush pastries, the incomparable taste of which is hard to forget. In particular, it is worth trying the iconic Pastel de Nata custard pie or tapas snacks.

Art and culture

In the Bairro Alto neighborhood, open-air tourists can explore houses with colorful murals reflecting the city's beauty and cultural heritage. Also recommended this year is a visit to the LX Factory, a former industrial complex that has been transformed into a creative hub where you can find galleries, studios, and boutiques for artists to thrive.

Coastal vacation

Lisbon's main advantage is its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. Those looking for a coastal adventure head to the beaches of Cascais and Estoril. In addition, you can go on a sailing trip on the Tagus River.

Fado - the music of the Portuguese soul

Walking through the streets of the city, you can hear a special fado melody accompanied by soulful lyrics that allow you to look into the soul of Lisbon. Local musicians are happy to create this atmosphere for travelers, conveying both sadness and a sense of elation.

Sustainable tourism

Lisbon's green initiatives are effective and well known in Europe. The city has implemented green areas in the Parque das Nações and launched eco-friendly transportation to help preserve the beauty for future generations. Here you can ride bicycles or electric trams and visit local eco-friendly restaurants.
