Lisboa luz

A magic view of Lisbon at night

Lisbon (Lisboa) is the capital of Portugal. It is located on one of the sides of the Tagus River (Rio Tejo, in portuguese).


There are a lot of theories about the name, including origin from the Phoenicians, the Greeks, the Visigoths and the Muslims:

  • "Olisipone" a name from a Greek legend, in which Ulysses founded Lisbon and gave it that name;
  • "Olissipona" as "Olisipone" mixed with Latin;
  • "Oliosipon" by Ptolemy;
  • "Ulishbona" by the Visigoths;
  • and "Al-Lixbûnâ" or "Al-Ushbuna" by the Muslims (Mozarabes).

Song : La vai Lisboa.
