Due to this heritage and its geographical location, Lisbon has become a central hub in West-East and North-South interconnections.


Even though January is one of the coldest months in Lisbon, the average temperature is 15°C (59°F) throughout the day and 8°C (47°F) at night.

According to the 2017 Global Peace Index, Portugal is the 3rd safest country in the world.
