The capital of Portugal is the most populous city in the country with about 544 thousand people and its metropolitan area counts 2,8 million inhabitants. It was considered the 37th safest city in the world in the Mercer Quality of Living study, raking above other European capitals such as London or Paris.
The city is rich in natural, cultural and historical heritage, offering a wide range of possibilities for long- and short-term visitors to entail cultural and leisure activities all year round. Among others, walkers and joggers will enjoy trekking the Monsanto Park, where the Lisbon School of Architecture is located. Along the riverfront, the leisure areas, museums and historical buildings make it one of the best spaces of the city for strolling and cycling, connecting the Belém Monumental area to the ancient city core.
Lisbon is famous for its mix of tradition and modernity and its hospitality. The city has always been a meeting point from routes across the land and seas and you will find here a sample of the rich Portuguese gastronomy, based on a tradition that combines the best ingredients in an original crossing between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.
The time of streets is the theme of the fifth edition of the City Street Conference and we challenge you to explore and enjoy the wrinkles of the city of Lisbon.
