Historical City On & Good Place To Live

Lisbon is the capital of Portugal. A city that inspires long travels and is reminiscent of colonial prosperity. The city’s Golden Age began in the 15th century with Vasco de Gama’s first journey who discover the mythical route to India.

Soon after, Pedro Alvarès Cabral’s discovery of Brazil cemented Portugal’s place in the world an Lisbon, as the starting point of epic discoveries. The treasures of these countries – the exotic spices and woods of Brazil, its precious stones, the silks from China, Japanese pearls and the crafts from India – made of Portugal an economic and cultural powerful place and Lisbon took the most advantage of any other city in the country. It was the trade and arts center. The city star ts to be covered by monuments and beautiful houses. An affluent bourgeoisie emerged; its palaces bring artists from all of Europe.

In 1755, a very important earthquake followed by a tidal wave destroyed two thirds of the city. The city quickly recovered and rebuilt itself with a new vision of urban planning and a distinctive aesthetic; the one by which Lisbon is distinguished today.

The country went through a lethargic period of development under Salazar’s
dictatorship, from 1932 until 1974. Since 1986 Portugal benefited from the
economic advantages of European Union. All infrastructures like highway were
totally renewed.

Lisbon was elected Cultural Capital in 1994 and then the World Exhibition in
1998 were booster for the renew of the city, modernisation of transportation and
development of the North of Tagus waterfront.

From this moment, Lisbon became a very dynamic city and a magnet for a whole
new generation of Europeans as well as the Portuguese children that had left while Salazar’s was in power.
