Lisbon, capital of Portugal, renowned for its warmth and friendliness invites you to discover it.
Unthinkable to visit this city without taking the legendary yellow tram, its real name “the Remodelado”. This historic model of tram dates from the years 1873 and contributes to the attractiveness of the city. It will take you to the central Alfama district. This oldest district of Lisbon will charm you with its steep slopes and its passages decorated with tiles called “azulejo”. This labyrinth of alleys will reveal the Sé Cathedral and the Roman amphitheater.
Lisbon is also known for its rich cultural life. The last city museum is worth a look: the MAAT (Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology). It offers permanent and temporary exhibitions with international dimensions with the objective of stirring up reflection on contemporary subjects. It is located in the Belèm district where you can taste the emblematic Portuguese pastry: “Pastéis de nata”. Fall for the crispy puff pastry and the fondant of these small round flans sprinkle with cinnamon.
Another cultural facet of Lisbon, the typical “fado” songs. Around a restaurant, you will probably hear this traditional song accompanied by guitar. It generally expresses melancholy and is considered music embodying the Portuguese soul.
