The capital city of Portugal, Lisbon is one of the gems of Europe. Spread out on steep hills overlooking the Rio Tejo, the city was once the greatest centre of world exploration and discoveries. Famous seafarers sailed from Lisboa and discovered the sea-routes to many continents. The city is divided into the bairro alto, the upper town, and the baixa or the lower town. Wonderful old cobblestone streets, sun drenched cafès, grand plazas, lamplit old quarters and brightly coloured old street trams that make their bumpy way through the narrow tree-lined streets, are all part of this wonderful city.
