On the right bank of the broad Tagus river estuary, the capital of Portugal
graciously reclines over rolling hills. This is a spectacular geographical
location and does much to explain the cosmopolitan history of the city.
Its exceptional natural light, which has long inspired writers, photographs
and filmmakers, the brightly coloured buildings straddling the slopes,
the striking ochre of the roofs, the tiling on so many facades and the
narrow twisting alleys of the medieval districts bestow Lisbon with
the peculiar atmosphere of a city perched somewhere between the European
north and the Mediterranean south.
