Lisbon_Travel  InformationLisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world and the second oldest in Europe (after Athens).

Many historians believe that it was established by the Phoenicians around 1200 B.C. who made the settlement as a sheltered harbour taking advantage of the excellent transport possibilities offered by the Tagus River.

According to one of the theories, it was the Phoenicians who gave the name to the city calling it “Allis Ubbo” (or “Safe Harbour” in Phoenician).
