Lisbon is the capital of Portugal. Located by the river Tagu’s mouth, the city is a blend of cultures, with seven iconic hills capped with “miradouros” (viewpoints) from where to admire the city. Its cobbled steep streets, its gastronomy and a myriad of little bars, taverns and fado houses offer the visitor a vibrant blend of tradition and modernity, as well as a perfect base to explore the wider region.
From Lisbon take the coastal road north to find glamorous villas, palaces of unrivalled beauty and magical landscapes such as the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Moon Hill. Most of the areas along the coastline of the Lisbon region are part of a Natural Park or a Reserve. Amongst all of them, the World Surfing Reserve of Ericeira is one you will not want to miss!
