Member of the LHC since 1994

Originally a harbor city constructed by the Phoenicians around 1200 B.C., Lisbon owes its name (Olissipus) to the legendary Greek hero Ulysses, who is said to have disembarked at the harbor of what is today Lisbon. Among the city's many historical sites, the tomb of the explorer Vasco da Gama is located in the Jeronimos Monastery.
