The charm of a city break to Portugal's capital city, Lisbon, is its combination of an incredible heritage with a wonderful, laid-back atmosphere. Once the centre of a great maritime empire, the modern city has re-emerged as one of Europe's most attractive destinations. During the Age of Exploration, Lisbon was one of the starting points for ships making their way into the unknown world. Discover this dynamic,
welcoming city and its coastline steeped in history, from the imposing Castelo de Sao Jorge – captured from the Moors in the 12th century – to the Manueline-era Jeronimos Monastery. Peek inside the baroque church of Sao Roque, and wander along the streets of the old Baixa district. After a tour of the city, Lisbon holidays offer quiet moments of relaxation in between surfing and swimming on the coast. If you’re in need of a nature-filled detox, breathe the fresh air at the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park on the Portuguese Riviera, or follow the banks of the Tagus estuary as it flows into the Port of Lisbon.
