Built on seven hills, Lisbon is the city of lookouts and games of light. Very popular with artists, it hosts many original sites, such as the Belém district for example. You can discover all the eras that have marked the city, passing through the monastery of Hieronymites, the MAAT (design museum), the royal palace of Ajuda, or the cultural center of Belém. Take the famous tram and go to the Ribeira market to enjoy typical dishes, or in the Bairro Alto for a drink while listening to music. If you like green and airy spaces, Lisbon also boasts many parks and botanical gardens open to the public.
