Lisbon is known as ‘City of the 7 hills. Atop one of them sits St. Jorge’s Castle with a breathtaking view over the capital.

After the 1755 earthquake, Marquês de Pombal ordered the reconstruction of the downtown area, Baixa, under the philosophy of “The Century of Enlightment”.

Although it was built 3 centuries ago, its urban planning, similarly to large European metropolis (e.g. Paris), has an everlasting design.
