Located on the south west edge of Portugal lies the capital city Lisbon. Also referred to as Lisboa, Lisbon is a fantastic attractive cosmopolitan city 10 miles from the Atlantic Ocean with a warm Mediterranean climate. Blessed as the only European capital located close to sandy beaches, Lisbon boasts many clean beaches flying the EU Blue Flag for excellence. Although the waters are not as warm as in the south of the country, holidays in Lisbon offer visitors beautiful beaches ideal for a refreshing day in the sun. Lisbon enjoys many well preserved influences from centuries past. Explore the architectural marvels of the Jeronimos Monastery and Belem Tower or discover archaic treasures from the East and West at the world-class Calouste Gulbenkian Museum. A tram ride to the city's legendary seven hills is a must. Admire the breathtaking panoramas over the city from strategically-placed miradouros or viewpoints offering breathtaking panoramas over the city. Sunsets in Lisbon do not mean the end of the day, especially on weekends or summer nights; cafes and bars spill out onto the streets. The Docks of Alcantara and the Santos district offer several fashionable bars and clubs. The attractive setting of the docks offer a fantastic view of the sunset, or sunrise for that matter!
