Lisbon is the capital and largest as well as wealthiest city of Portugal. The architecture is Romanesque, Gothic, Manueline, Baroque, Traditional Portuguese, Modern and Post Modern.
Lisbon is surrounded by seven hills. The heart of the city is the Baixa which is organized in a grid system with many one-way streets and a network of squares filled with monuments, fountains and statuary, built after the 1755 earthquake which leveled a big part of the medieval town.
There are many ways to see the city - by bus, tram, trolley, Metro, funicular, elevator and on foot, of course!
