Let yourself be enveloped by the river and fado and enjoy the special things that make Lisbon unique.

Flavours of Lisbon

Cod is king, but grilled sardines dominate during Santos Populares. If you're visiting Lisbon, you can't miss the pastel de nata sprinkled with cinnamon. To drink, there's nothing like the wide choice of Portuguese wines and the fruity sangria. And these are just a few of the many excuses the city offers for leaving the diet behind.

Lisbon is a dream destination for foodies, wine lovers, critics and the curious. From signature restaurants to centuries-old taverns, there's always a table waiting for you. The famous cod, in all its various forms, is a must. Seafood and fresh fish bring the Atlantic to your plate in a sophisticated way or straight from the grill. And the cafés, where so many Portuguese writers have gathered, have terraces with breathtaking views, endless hours of enchanting sunshine and, increasingly, interesting wine lists to get to know one of Portugal's greatest riches. Come and try them.


What's trending?

Lisbon knows how to celebrate. Whether it's a saint, traditional food or your love of art. Join in this year-round festive spirit, embrace the region's culture at typical festivals and cheer on your favourite athletes at internationally renowned sports competitions. Or listen to famous musicians at festivals that attract people from all over the world.
