Sun-drenched, charismatic and close to the beach: Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, attracts emigrants and tourists alike, thanks primarily to its fantastic location and mild climate. Built directly on the Atlantic coast, it easily manages the balancing act between beach life and historical sights.
Lisbon’s picturesque old town with its pastel-colored houses is especially worth a visit. The imposing Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge is a marvel of engineering. It is not far from the city to the water: several beaches invite you to sunbathe on the picturesque Atlantic coast.
