Over the years, Lisbon has been home to the Celts, the Romans, and the Moors, and this rich heritage is still evident today in the city’s captivating monuments, museums, and architecture. The great explorers da Gama and Magellan also set out from here on their global voyages of discovery. Visitors can explore the charming medieval neighbourhood of Alfama, climb to Lisbon Castle for jaw-dropping views of the capital’s hillsides, or take an old-fashioned tram around to enjoy the colourful city streets. Lisbon is also the only European capital on the Atlantic, and the beach is just a train ride away.
