Lisbon is one of the cities with the best quality of life, as confirmed by a number of rankings drawn up by prestigious media outlets such as Monocle magazine, which awards the city seventh place in the world. It’s true to say that this has led to a great deal of interest in new homes in Lisbon. Let’s find out a little more about this great European capital.
In particular, the Monocle ranking places Lisbon among the top ten cities in the world in terms of excellent quality of life. Although the Portuguese city stood in 12th place in 2018, in the last few years it has undergone a sharp rise in this respect, climbing to seventh position.Ahead of it we can find only Copenhagen, Zurich, Helsinki, Stockholm, Tokyo and Vienna.
What makes Lisbon so special? The experts compiling this ranking highlight factors such as the arrival of new people with fresh ideas, affordable prices, green space, sustainable transport alternatives, historical heritage, a wide range of services and excellent safety conditions, among many others.
Another of Lisbon’s particular features that shouldn’t be overlooked is the fine weather it enjoys all the year round. This means its residents enjoy not-overly torrid summers with cooler nights to help them sleep, while in winter temperatures don’t fall too much and the rain keeps the air clean.
A stroll through the city of Lisbon reveals charming streets replete with palaces and monuments whose blue tiles form the backdrop of the Portuguese capital, becoming one of its most recognisable symbols.
Of course, other sights of great historical relevance include the Jerónimos Monastery, Rossio Square, Marqués de Pombal Square and the cathedral.
Another of its wonders is painted green; the Monsanto forest, located in the heart of the city. Covering 10% of its total surface area, its residents can be surrounded by nature without ever leaving the city itself
