Interact 2011


Boasting balmy winters and cool summers, Lisbon is a modern welcoming city offering rich picturesque vistas and unique sites. The capital of Portugal since its conquest from the Moors in 1147, Lisbon is a legendary city with over 20 centuries of history. Lisbon is known as the White City, thanks to its unique luminosity. With its typical tiled facades and narrow Medieval streets resonant with strains of Fado, the city is an ideal destination for a holiday and a perfect host for conferences. Lisbon is a short flight from most European cities and is easily accessible by train, car or boat.
