Welcome Information

Living in Lisbon

Lisbon is the capital and the largest city of Portugal. Boasting over 20 centuries of history, its traditional neighbourhoods with steep, narrow streets, with their characteristic cobblestone pavements, unique in Europe, and the tile panels on buildings, are all part of Lisbon’s incredibly acquired heritage over time. In the historical centre of the city you can still enjoy the richness of the music declared intangible cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO, the “fado”.
