Top Ten Places to Visit in Lisbon, Portugal

Feb
11

Not only the capital of Portugal, Lisbon happens to be one of the oldest cities in the world. Predating Rome by hundreds of years, the city has, at various points in history, been ruled by Celtic and Germanic tribes, the Romans, the Moors and the Crusaders, and has barely survived fires and earthquakes. With such a rich history, and located directly at the mouth of the Tagus River by the Atlantic Ocean, it's no wonder the city is home to amazing music, culture and food.
