Activities in Lisbon
Lisbon"Risen from ruins." This is meant for one of the most beautiful capitals in Europe, which rose from the ashes after a devastating earthquake and a tsunami like a phoenix and is today more magnificent than ever. Truly royal, Lisbon today is home to numerous splendid buildings, which line up along the cobbled streets like a string of pearls and form a fascinating contrast to monuments like the ruins of the gleaming white Convento do Carmo, which are still reminiscent of the catastrophe of 1755. If the stones of Lisbon could speak, they would also tell you some stories when you walk through the cosy neighbourhoods of Alfama and Bélem with their charming street art. When looking at the colourful pictures on white façades against the backdrop of the bright blue Atlantic, it becomes clear why Lisbon is also one of the world's major cities for street art. Lisbon is also world class in cultural terms, but not so much in terms of the interesting museums, but rather in terms of the longing sounds of the traditional Fado, which penetrate the streets like a gentle wave and invite you to dream.
