Setting Description:
Lisbon is the capital, which is older than modern Rome and is in fact older than any other western European capital. There are few more immediately agreeable capitals than Lisbon! A lively and varied place, it remains in some ways curiously provincial, rooted as much in the 1920s as the 1990s. Wooden trams from before World War I clank up outrageous gradients, past mosaic pavements and Art Nouveau cafes. Modern Lisbon has kept an easy-going, human pace and scale, however the population has doubled over the present century to nearly one million, a tenth of all Portuguese.
