Only in Lisbon

Lisbon is the perfect city break, not just because it combines a European capital, the beach and nature all into one, but because it also offers a set of characteristics you won’t find anywhere else. You won’t find art below your feet in any other city, for example, and even less so in the impressive shape of calçada portuguesa, the art of stone paving which visitors find so impressive. And if you can manage to raise your eyes from ground level to the walls around you, you will also see that the amazing art of tile making (azulejaria) has plenty to be proud of: in almost every building or street you can find worthy representatives of the geometric or figurative art that found its zenith in Portugal. The intermixing of urban art by world famous artists, such as Vhils, with Manueline-style ornamental art can only be seen in this sunny corner of Europe. Come and see for yourself.
