Lisbon, Portugal’s hilly capital, is a coastal city known for its cafe culture and soulful Fado music. From imposing São Jorge Castle, the view encompasses the old city’s pastel-colored buildings, Tagus Estuary and the Ponte 15 de Abril suspension bridge. Nearby, the National Azulejo Museum displays 5 centuries of decorative ceramic tiles. And just outside Lisbon is a string of Atlantic beaches, from Cascais to Estoril. With a population of 551,700, Lisbon enjoys a Subtropical-Mediterranean climate with mild winters and warm summers. Archaeological findings suggest there were Phoenician influences dating back to 1100 BC, leading some historians to believe that a Phoenician trading post might have occupied the centre of the present city. The westernmost part of Lisbon is occupied by the Parque Florestal de Monsanto. The city of Lisbon is rich in architecture; Romanesque, Gothic, Manueline, Baroque, Modern and Postmodern constructions can be found all over Lisbon. There are several substantial museums one can visit in the city. Lisbon is home to many festivals every year.
