About Gay Lisbon

Gay Lisbon - City Guide

Read more about Gay Lisbon

Lisbon is a city on the rise. It was once considered to be a charming but tired city. Now it’s one of Europe’s emerging capitals. Low rents, perfect weather and excellent cuisine have served as a major draw. Lisbon still retains some of its faded charms but it’s in the process of being gentrified. Madonna recently moved to Lisbon.

Lisbon has a growing gay scene. It attracts around 3 million visitors each year. Lisbon has a rich history – it was once the capital of the Portuguese empire. There are many historic buildings to explore and quirky museums. You can eat a big meal and have your fill of drink while paying remarkably little. Lisbon is a great choice for a European city break.
