Lisboa, capital of Portugal, has a privileged geographic location, given its position on the right-hand bank of the Tejo River, few kilometres away from its mouth and protected from the wind by the city of seven hills: Castelo, Graça, Monte, Penha de França, S. Pedro de Alcântara, Santa Catarina and Estrela. Each one of them has its history, its peculiarities, mysteries and secrets.

The oldest evidence of human presence in Lisbon goes back to Palaeolithic and since centuries it has been marked by a cosmopolitan and intercultural ambience.

The way that the city and the surrounding area complement each other is particularly interesting. The surrounding area also has unique and natural conditions with rural and urban landscapes. Some of the interesting spots are: Arrábida Mountain, Sintra, Cascais, Estoril, Ericeira, Costa da Caparica, among others.

Lisbon is the centre of a metropolitan urban system on both banks of the river. Its roots are lost in time; however, as centuries pass, Lisbon is still the main hub of culture, trade and other services.

The euro-Atlantic location of Lisbon provides unique conditions in terms of cultural, economic and commercial sectors, because of its many economic partners with Europe, the Far East, Africa, South America and the Pacific. The construction of a metropolitan area with several development sectors away from the city centre provide Lisbon with a wide range of alternatives in terms of a progressively more demanding role in a national and regional context and increase its value.
