Overlooking the River Targus on the western Iberian Peninsula, Lisbon is a cosmopolitan city with a rich cultural heritage. You can ride the famous 28 Tram through the city center, visit sun-drenched beaches, snack on famous seafood (such as bacalhau/dried cod), and surround yourself with masterpieces by Picasso. Lisbon’s white limestone buildings, tiny alleyways, and laidback charm make for a memorable visit that’s popular with tourists. Not far away is Sintra, filled with 19th century aristocratic castles, palaces, and mansions. Cascais is also nearby and is best known as a beach town with sandy shores, seafood stews, and museums dedicated to the arts and the seas.
The name Lisbon comes from the Phoenician word Allis Ubbo, which refers to the city’s excellent safe harbor. Legend has it the city was named for Ulysses, who founded the settlement after he left Troy to escape the Greek coalition. Archeological history begins in the Neolithic period when the area was inhabited by Pre-Celtic tribes. Phoenicians colonized the area in 1200 B.C., and later Decimus brought the region under Roman rule. Muslim forces conquered the city in 711, followed by the Crusaders in 1147. In the 15th century seafaring expeditions set out from Lisbon, starting the Age of Discovery.
