Lisbon, the cultural center and capital of Portugal, is located at the mouth of the Tagus River. The port's strategic location brought about Portugal's great wave of exploration during the 15th century. Trade routes from the east brought rich and varied spices, textiles and foreign influences. Today, the soaring, mile-and-a-half-long 25th of April Bridge greets you as you enter the harbor.
Located in the central shopping area of Baxia lies Lisbon's bustling main square. Adjacent is Rua Augusta, a pedestrian-only street lined with flower vendors, upscale shops and sidewalk cafes.
Lisbon's Moorish Quarter boasts centuries old tile-roofed villas, ornate churches, narrow winding cobblestone lanes and steep hillside steps.
The 16th century Belem Tower is a majestic monument to the Age of Discovery, and the starting point of many voyages, including Vasco da Gama's epic journey to India.
