As you all know, Lisbon is Portugal’s capital city. It lies in the western Iberian Peninsula on the Atlantic Ocean and the River Tagus.
This beautiful and colorful city is actually one of the oldest urban centers in the world, and the oldest in Western Europe. According to archeologists, Lisbon is even older than London, Paris and Rome!
A part from being a historical town, Lisbon has also THE perfect climate. It has warm winters, with average temperatures 15 °C during the day and 8 °C at night; and the summer season lasts about six months, from May to October.
Good weather, millennial culture and colorful buildings make the city as beautiful as unique. It does sound like the perfect place to live in, don’t it?!
Anyway, if you don’t want to move out there yet, but you feel like going on a weekend getaway, then you shouldn’t miss any of the places mentioned in this article. As always, The Golden Scope put together a list of the top attractions one should see when in a city—in this case, when in Lisbon.
