Landmarks · Castles · Aquariums
Lisbon District contains a coastline that stretches for over 320 km (200 mi), so it shouldn't come as a surprise that the region's art, cuisine, and architecture remain inextricably linked to the sea. Straddling seven hills on the edge of the Atlantic, the coastal city of Lisbon serves as the district's main holiday destination, drawing pleasure seekers with its old-fashioned hospitality, rich cultural scene, and vibrant nightlife. Further inland spreads the district's serene countryside, studded with quaint villages, monasteries, and wineries. The small town of Sintra, a standout among the district's notable places to visit, boasts a well-preserved Moorish castle and a lavish royal palace and gardens, former summer residence of Portuguese aristocrats.
