Lisbon is the capital and largest city of Portugal and is recognised as an alpha-level global city by GaWC for its importance to finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts, trade and tourism. It is the 11th most populous urban area in the EU, with around 2.8 million people living in the city’s administrative limits. Lisbon is the 9th most visited city in Southern Europe after such cities as Madrid, Barcelona and Milan. The first known settlement in the area was in 1200 BCE, which makes it one of the oldest cities in the world. In the Neolithic period, Lisbon was inhabited by Pre-Celtic tribes that built religious, as well as funerary, monuments. Julius Caesar made it a municipium (city) whilst controlled by the Roman Empire. In the early 18th century, gold from Brazil helped King John V to sponsor the building of churches and theatres in the city. During World War II, more than 100,000 refugees were able to flee Nazi Germany through Lisbon. The city is located at the mouth of the Tagus River, and is the westernmost capital of a mainland European country. There are several administratively defined cities and municipalities in Lisbon, including Amadora, Loures, Barreiro, Oeiras and many more. The region of Lisbon is the wealthiest region in Portugal, and it is above the EU’s GDP per capita average. Monocle Magazine ranked Lisbon as the 18th most ‘livable’ city in the world in 2015, and it consistently ranks in the ‘Top 10 Cities in Europe’ listings. There are 4 commuter train lines departing from Lisbon, and there is a local bus service operated by Carris. Lisbon has a long tradition in sports and has hosted several important matches including the 2004 Euro Championship, the 2014 Champions League Final, the 1967 European Cup Final, etc. Sports such as futsal, handball, basketball, roller hockey, volleyball, rugby union and judo are all very popular in the city, and thousands compete in the Lisbon Half Marathon and Portugal Half Marathon- both of which take place in the city.
Bacalhau is locals’ favourite fish, with most restaurants offering a unique take on the codfish. The most commonly served dish contains fried potato, onion, scrambled eggs, black olives and parsley. A central recipe to Lisbon is Franco no Churrasco– a specially sauced chicken influenced by African countries which were once Portuguese colonies. The chicken is cooked on a grill, seasoned with a rich hot-sauce, and served with French fries, rice and a salad. One of the most famous desserts from the region is Pastel de Belém, a puff pastry egg tart, which is slightly salty and crisp, made with milk and not cream. The recipe was created by Monastery monks in Belém, a district of Lisbon, and very few know the secret recipe. Belém is not just famous for its pastries though- the beautiful Belém Tower was once a prison, built as a military fortification, but was later used during the Liberal Wars of the 19th century. Most people from Lisbon call themselves either Lisboetas or Alfacinhas. Alfacinha means ‘little lettuce’ and stems from a time when locals had little else to eat than lettuce. When in the city, visiting the Ocenarium is a must- it has the largest indoor tank in Europe and is filled with five million litres of seawater (it contains different kinds of sharks, sunfish and deep-sea fish). Fun fact about Lisbon is that it was the first international city to buy Guinness! Lisbon’s espionage connection throughout the 20th century is said to have inspired write Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond stories, during his time there while working as a Naval Intelligence Officer. Lisbon is a big centre of culture and remains a popular location for those looking to relocate either to Portugal or visit on holiday.
