Description

Lisbon, an ancient city, a city of contrasts and a crossroads of cultures, secrets and mysteries, which with countless faces creates its own identity, even if we end up glimpsing or mistakenly taking for granted some aspects of the metropolis, such as Saint Anthony is the city's protective saint. Its privileged location, side by side with the Tagus River, a calm river with good depth, next to metal mines and in the area of the renowned Lusitanian horses, made it a stopping point for Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans and Arabs, even the Christians conquered the village once and for all. City in the shadow of São Jorge Castle, it has several facets, from the medieval, in its oldest neighborhoods, to the Renaissance, on Avenida da Liberdade or Belém or post-modern in the Parque das Nações area. City starting point for the epic of Discoveries, which allowed the Portuguese to create commercial exchanges with countless civilizations, from the Japanese to the Brazilian. In return we received a melting pot of global influences that shaped the city in a unique way with the presence of Asian sailors, Arab merchants, African freedmen and South American traders, until the decline of the golden phase of Portuguese History. The “swan song” comes with the earthquake of 1755, which completely obliterated the city's riverside area, killing any ray of hope of a return to past glory. However, the city was reborn from this disaster, becoming a modern and cosmopolitan city after the Napoleonic invasions and the civil war between Pedro and Miguel, a place where culture took hold with prominent figures such as Almeida Garrett, Fernando Pessoa, Alexandre Herculano, thus making emblematic cafes such as Brasileira or Nicola, along with the birth of theaters that are postcards of Lisbon, such as D. Maria II. Today it is a global city, which combines history hand in hand with technology, the classic with the modern, art with education, tourism with commerce.
