The Lisbon District includes the Portuguese capital and the areas west and north of it to the Atlantic coast. In addition to Lisbon itself, there are summer resorts besieged in the summer, the westernmost point of continental Europe and a complex of parks and palaces in Sintra.
Lisbon, which is not only the capital of the country, but also the region's main tourist center, attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists every year. You can visit the picturesque old districts with the Se cathedral, numerous churches, pleasant squares and yellow trams passing between them, the phenomenal Belem with the UNESCO-listed Jeronimos Monastery and the modern Expo district.
In close proximity to Lisbon, Sintra lies within the protected forests. From the 18th century, the most important representatives of the aristocracy built their palaces here. Buildings that resemble fairy-tale castles were built on the hills and huge parks.
To the west of the capital stretches a strip of coastal towns, which in the summer turn into bustling resorts. The most famous of them is Cascais, with a large marina, sandy beach and the remains of ancient coastal forts.
One of the most visited places in the region is also Cabo da Roca, a rocky promontory considered to be the westernmost point of continental Europe. There is a wonderful view of the cliff coast and the foamy ocean.
