Lisbon

Portugal
4.6 / 19
Lisbon - in the distant past, the capital of a powerful maritime empire that gave the world the great Vasco da Gama and Fernand Magellan, and now a picturesque and atmospheric city that still preserves the memory of its former greatness. A dramatic and turning point in the history of Lisbon was 1755, when a powerful earthquake destroyed it almost to its foundations. But, despite the fact that medieval architecture and many priceless monuments have been lost, the restored Lisbon of the 18th-19th centuries is of great interest to tourists. The capital of Portugal preserves the treasures of the Jeronimos Monastery and the Ajuda Palace, stretches along the quaint streets of the Alfama and Baixa quarters and flaunts grandiose suspension bridges. The historical heritage of the city is priceless, so there is a wide field for research here for tourists.
