Lisbon, capital city of Portugal, has been influenced by many distant cultures over time. One can stroll through the Pombaline grid of streets in the Baixa district that opens on to the Tagus in Praça do Comércio, then follow the river to discover some of the city’s popular attractions: the monumental area of Belém with its World Heritage monuments, the mediaeval quarters and the contemporary leisure spaces, such as the Parque das Nações. Along the coastal road, there are beaches and resorts that combine villas and hotels from the beginning of the 20th century with marinas, terraces and golf courses. Further along the coast there are world-renowned surfing beaches, and also the palaces scattered across the cultural landscape of Sintra, a World Heritage Site. Some of the tourist attractions include Jeronimos Monastery, Belem Tower, St George’s Castle, Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, São Roque Church and more.
