Lisbon is the westernmost and one of the oldest capitals in Europe. A hundred years older than London! However, not many really ancient buildings have survived to this day. The city was severely affected by the earthquake, as well as by the tsunami and fire that resulted from it. It happened in 1755. Like Moscow, Lisbon stands on 7 hills, but they are much closer to each other, forming very steep slopes. Our weekend sightseeing will be full of great hiking trails, so be sure to take your comfortable shoes with you. And don't forget the beach amenities - the ocean is only 30 minutes away!
