Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is the richest and most populated city in the country and is situated at the mouth of the Tagus River to the Atlantic Ocean. With an architecture that mixes the traditional heritage with an impressive modernism, the city hosts a large number of international events and congresses every year, being therefore world famous.

The contemporary and modern architecture of Lisbon focuses on the Expo’98 (which starred) and from which began a remodeling of the city. Architects like Santiago Calatrava and Álvaro Siza Vieira devised large constructions for the Expo’98, such as Oriente Station and Portugal Pavilion. Still, other architects and their constructions like Aires Mateus (with Mar do Oriente) and João Pedro Falcão De Campos (with Bar à Margem) among others, have contributed to this remodeling of the city.
