Lisbon shows multiple contrasts between the historical and modern, combining different cultures, trends and lifestyles. Situated near the Tagus river and sunny almost all the time, the Portuguese capital has a unique beauty and an internationally acclaimed architectural singularity.

Rich in monuments, neighborhoods (Baixa Pombalina, Belém, Bairro Alto, Chiado, Bica, Alfama and Mouraria), riverside zone, Fado houses, parks, gardens and viewpoints, Lisbon offers various possibilities to discover, so visit and enjoy the vast natural, historic and cultural city heritage.

Landmarks such as the Medieval Castle of St. George, Medieval Cathedral, Belem Tower, Jeronimos Monastery, National Pantheon, Palace Square and the Downtown are some of the tourist attractions of Lisbon that fascinate thousands of visitors from around the world.

The gastronomy of Lisbon is very influenced by its proximity to the sea. So typical specialties in Lisbon are fried cod, fried green beans, and grilled sardines on bread (mainly in the feast of the popular saints that occurs during the month of June). The famous Bife à Café is also considered a capital’s “ex-libris” food. The most famous dessert in Lisbon is the traditional Pastel de Nata (custard tart), made in a former factory in Belém, better known as Pastel de Belém.

Lisbon offers an exceptional university experience for students. Great restaurants, lively nightlife and a vast array of entertainment options mean that Lisbon is a fantastic choice for students looking to make the most of their years at uni.


As a privileged space of science and knowledge, the ULisboa is today, one of the major institutions of Higher Education in Europe and one of the leading University in the country. 

Getting around

The transport network includes Carris (buses, trams, funiculars and lifts) and the Metro. Suburban railways complement these networks and some passes are also valid on the cross city rail line.

An excellent way to travel is a 'Via Viagem' or  '7colinas' pre paid card available from Metro and other ticket offices and the Casa da Sorte in P da Rossio. This is a top up card called 'Zapping'


Lisbon's shopping is second to none, with everything from quirky little stores selling traditional trinkets right up to more contemporary boutiques and swish stores that stock all the latest fashion, technology and gadgets.


Considered to be among the best in Europe, Lisbon is well known for its nightlife. It is home to many discos, Bars, Fado houses, and nightclubs, all catering to different tastes and interests and located throughout the city.

The sports facilities provide physical exercise modalities (e. g. fitness, group activities, combat sports, tennis, volleyball), and university championships in order to promote the use of free time for health and wellbeing activity within the academic community.
