Lisbon
Lisbon is the capital and largest city of Portugal. It is also the seat of the district of Lisbon and capital of the Lisbon region. Lisbon is the westernmost capital in mainland Europe. It is located in the west of the country, on the Atlantic Ocean coast at the point where the river Tagus flows into the Atlantic Ocean.

During the Neolithic the region was inhabited by Iberian related peoples, who also lived in other regions of Atlantic Europe at the time. They built religious monuments called megaliths. Dolmens and Menhirs still survive in the countryside around the city. The Indo-European Celts invaded after the first millennium BC and intermarried with the Pre-Indo-European population, giving a rise to Celtic-speaking local tribes such as the Cempsi.

Lisbon is one of the mildest European capitals. Spring is cool to warm with plenty of sunshine and also some showers. Summer months are mostly sunny, dry and hot with temperatures between 16 C to 38 C. Autumn is mild and unsettled with temperatures between 8 C and 23 C and winters are typically rainy, windy and cool with some sunny days.

With whole areas of the city being turned over to the pursuit of pleasure and traffic jams at 0400-0500 at the weekend, it is obvious that Lisbon is a city that takes its nightlife seriously. Traditionally, the nightlife center has been Bairro Alto, with its fado clubs, traditional, canteen-style bars and upscale discos. The bars are often open as late as 0400. The minimum age for purchasing alcohol is 16 years. Much of the action has moved on to the Docas (Docks) district, situated just to the east of Ponte 25 de Abril. One bar after another occupies a row of converted warehouses at the Doca de Santo Amaro. Back towards the city, the Doca de Alcntara is another favorite with Lisbons moneyed professionals.
