Situated on the north banks of the River Tagus, Lisbon is filled
with strong links to the past. Its renovated palaces, magnificent
churches and an impressive castle mirror the city's rich cultural
heritage, making it a truly fascinating city to visit. Set on seven
hills, the city has cobble-stone pavements and narrow streets full
of Art Nouveau cafés.
Lisbon also hosts a great number of remarkable museums of
ancient and modern art, including the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum,
the National Museum of Contemporary Art, the Berardo Museum of
Modern and Contemporary Art, the National Coach Museum and
Carmo Archaeological Museum. The best way to discover Lisbon is to
get lost in its narrow, winding streets.
