Practical Guide (Portugal/Lisbon/Oeiras)


Although the nearest town to the University campus is Oeiras – a place with plenty of interest and charm of its own – it is Lisbon which conquers the heart of people visiting this region of Portugal, thanks to its size and long history.

Lisbon, known as the city of the seven hills, is the capital of Portugal, as well as its largest city. Located on the right bank of the River Tagus, it is the westernmost large city in Europe. Lisbon's legendary history stretches back over twenty centuries, and has seen many civilizations, such as the Phoenicians, the Greeks, the Carthaginians and the Romans. It is still possible to find traces of these cultures even today. The sea Voyages of Discovery in the 15th and 16th centuries turned Lisbon into one of the world’s great ports and the centre of an empire that stretched from Brazil in the west to India in the east. On the banks of the river, great monuments are testament to that history.

Lisbon’s exceptional light and particular romantic atmosphere have long enchanted writers, photographers and tourists.

Due to its especially rich history, Lisbon is a city of many contrasts, combining tradition and modernity to fascinate its visitors. The traditional city districts show its cultural variety, history, architecture and people, examples being: Castelo, where visitors can find the beautiful Castelo de São Jorge; Alfama and Madragoa, where you can hear typical Fado music; Mouraria, the most multicultural district; Bairro Alto and Cais do Sodré, home to Lisbon’s nightlife; and Baixa-Chiado, where you can go shopping or relax while enjoying a cup of coffee side by side with the one of the greatest Portuguese poets, Fernando Pessoa.

Twenty minutes away by car there are beautiful sandy Atlantic beaches, and the coast is ideal for swimming, surfing, windsurfing or sailing in Cascais, Estoril and Guincho – host to numerous international surfing championships.

In Lisbon visitors will find a charming city, described by many as monumental, exquisite, classic, traditional, frenetic, modern, cosmopolitan, and romantic all at once!

The minimum charge is always 2.50€. The final fare is calculated based on the distance travelled and the time taken.
