Portugal’s Capital, The Lisbon City Guide

Portugal’s Capital, The Lisbon City Guide.

Lisbon is the capital and the largest city of Portugal, with a population of 552,700 within its administrative limits, but about 2.8 million people live in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area. It is continental Europe’s westernmost capital city and the only one along the Atlantic coast. It is recognised as a alpha-level global city by the Globalization and World Cities Study Group because of its importance in finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts, international trade, education and tourism. The city is the 7th most visited city in Southern Europe, after Istanbul, Rome, Barcelona, Madrid, Athens, and Milan. The Lisbon region contributes with a higher GDP PPP per capita than any other region in Portugal. It is also the political centre of the country, as its seat of Government and residence of the Head of State.

Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, and the oldest in Western Europe, predating other modern European capitals such as London, Paris, and Rome by centuries. Lisbon enjoys a Mediterranean climate. It has one of the warmest winters of any metropolis in Europe, with average temperatures 15 °C (59 °F) during the day and 8 °C (46 °F) at night from December to February. The typical summer season lasts about four months, from June to September, although also in April temperatures sometimes reach around 25 °C (77.0 °F).
