Just like any world class city, Lisbon has its urbanistic problems, but I would say 70% of it (as in the rest of Portugal) is as you see it in the photos depicted here and elsewhere. That's why we receive nearly 13 million foreign tourists every year.seattlehawk said:In terms of per capita income, Portugal may be behind other members of Western Europe. Yet, from what I have seen, urban planning, architecture, cleanliness and style of its cities surely do beat many other European cities by a wide margin, including those in much wealthier nations. As they say, money does not always buy the style and class.
Now I only need to check out in person whether Portugal is really as fabulous as it appears in these photos
