Lisbon's rich history and lively culture

Set over rolling hills at the mouth of the River Tagus, Lisbon is one of Europe's premier sea faring cities and one of the best known places that explorers set off from, during the great age of discovery in the 16th and 17th century. With some lovely buildings, the best known is the St George's Castle, which sits overlooking the city and dates from the 12th century.

Climate and special events in Lisbon

Situated about two thirds the way down Portugal's coast, Lisbon enjoys a warm climate all year round, with lots of sunshine, but it can get windy and a bit unpredictable in Winter. Try mid February when the Lisbon Carnival is on, or June sees a month of festivities to honour the patron saint Santo Antonio.

Transport, costs and useful facts

Lisbon is generally cheaper than London, especially if using public transport, buying groceries or eating out. The cuisine is uncomplicated, with lots of seafood and simple things like grilled sardines, which are great with the local Vinho Verde wine. Lunch menus start from 8 EUR. Portugal also has a good reputation for baking, so try the custard tarts which are a speciality.
