Day 3 Lisbon

Buffet breakfast at hotel day free for leisure

Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, and the oldest in Western Europe, predating other modern European capitals such as London, Paris and Rome by centuries.

Julius Caesar made it a municipium called felicitas Julia, adding to the name olissipo. Ruled by a series of germanic tribes from the 5th century, it was captured by the moors in the 8th century. In 1147, the crusaders under afonso henriques reconquered the city and since then it has been a major political, economic and cultural centre of Portugal. Unlike most capital cities, Lisbon’s status as the capital of Portugal has never been granted or confirmed officially – by statute or in written form. Its position as the capital has formed through constitutional convention, making its position as de facto capital a part of the constitution of Portugal.
