Quick Guide to Lisbon
Like the star jewel in any crown, Lisbon sparkles that little bit brighter than anywhere else in Portugal. Spread across looming hillsides that peek over the Rio Tejo, Lisbon manages to put forward the qualities of other European capitals without, well, over-egging the pudding (overdoing it, basically). Dramatic gothic cathedrals jostle for space with monasteries, museums and whispering, narrow backstreets - indeed they are all part of the chattering cityscape that attracts so many to this beautiful city. A holiday to Lisbon should definitely be on the cards for 2016.

Did you know?
Lisbon isn't technically the capital of Portugal - there are no official documents to support that fact. It apparently just happened in 1255 when Alfonso III moved the courts to the city.
