The founding of Lisbon dates back to 12th century BC, making it older than Rome and an important international capital. It was from this seaport that the explorations of Vasco da Gama and others led to Portugal's control of half of the New World. Today it is home to splendid art and maritime museums and a 13th century castle, featuring rare white peacocks and black-necked swans in its garden. Fado is a unique, soulful type of singing you will hear while relaxing in Lisbon's cafes.
