A city that has been getting many different cultures coming from distant places over time, still feels a village to breathe in each historic district.
We can get the grid Pombaline streets that opens the Tagus in the Commerce Square and, following the river, meet some of the nicest places in town: the monumental area of Belém with the World Heritage monuments, medieval quarters, and also areas more recent or contemporary leisure, as the Park of Nations or the docks.
Continuing along the mouth of the river we will see why it is said that Lisbon is the center of a vast resort. By the coastal road we will know beaches and seaside resorts that combine villas and early century hotels. XX with marinas, terraces and modern sports equipment, with particular emphasis on golf and recreational boating.
Following the coast we will find world-renowned surf spots, but also the palaces scattered around the Cultural Landscape of Sintra, World Heritage Site. Both north and south of the the capital, the wide variety of landscapes and heritage always is within walking distance.
With beaches, natural parks, cultural tours and accommodation for all tastes, it is difficult to escape the Lisbon region on a visit to Portugal. Fado is a Portuguese expression over too high a World Heritage Site.
So dinner in a fado house will be another experience not to be missed. And even after we join in lively bars and nightclubs, where we celebrate with a glass the arrival of our visitors.
