Portugal

Lisbon

Portugal's capital, a city of about 700,000 people, sits on the north bank of the Tejo (Tagus) estuary, 17 km (10 miles) from the Atlantic. The central area of Baixa was devastated by the earthquake of 1755, and today's carefully planned grid of elegant streets is essentially an 18th century creation. To either side, the narrow streets and hills of the Alfama and Bairro Alto districts provide interesting walks and wonderful views. To the west, at the mouth of the Tejo, lies Belem . From here, during the 15th and 16th centuries, ships set out into the unknown world, and impressive buildings such as the Mosteiro deo Jeronimos still bear testimony to Portugal's days as a forcible maritime power.
