Lisbon Travel guide
Lisbon : Michelin's recommendations
Located on the Tagus estuary, Lisbon is simultaneously a coastal and a river city. A cultural crossroads and commercial hub, this prestigious capital of a relatively small country was for many years overshadowed by dictatorship. Today, Lisbon is a symbol of the nation’s dynamism and, after two decades of major works, gives an impression of modernity, creativity and enterprise. The city of fado and saudade (a mood of nostalgic longing) invites visitors to stroll and daydream through its streets.
