Lisbon: Lisbon, the capital of Portugal and also called the city of the seven hills, can be seen as the white city, mother of sailors and explorers of seas, equally seven in number. Seen from the river Tagus- one of the city's many great viewpoints - Lisbon is an impressionist picture of low-rise ochre and pastel, punctuated by church towers and domes. Lisbon has an Atlantic climate, with Mediterranean influences. Due to these characteristics, Lisbon has lots of sunny days even during the winter.
