Lisbon is the beautiful capital city of Portugal, and also the largest city, lying on the Atlantic Ocean and the River Tagus. Lisbon has about 3 million inhabitants and is recognised as an alpha-level global city. It is one of the oldest cities in the world and a popular tourist destination. Lisbon has it all: a vibrant, sunny city built up the mountains, many historically rich sights and attractions and its location with various beautiful beaches nearby. Two famous sites are listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site; the Belém Tower – one of the most visited landmarks throughout Portugal – and Jerónimos Monastery.
Last but not least, it is the hometown of two big football clubs, playing in the top tier of Portuguese football, the Primeira Liga; SL Benfica and Sporting Lisbon. Both clubs belong to Os Três Grandes (the Big Three) of Portugal.
