Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in Europe, with Celtic settlements tracing back to 800 BC. Fast-forwarding to the 21st century - Lisbon and its outlying urban areas are home to almost 3 million people. Throughout modernization, Lisbon has grasped its 19thcentury history and culture - with long cobblestone streets full of fish vendors coming from the port, alongside fruit and vegetable markets for locals and tourists!
Living amongst the museums, cafés, and restaurants is Lisbon’s vibrant and glamorous queer neighborhood in the Old Bairro Alto district. You can find everything from all-nighter clubs, chill-out places, cocktail bars, saunas, and even LGBTQ+ beaches!
There are countless queer tours, including walking, beach, and nightlife tours to ensure an authentic and unique experience! Lisbon’s pride event is a week-long party celebrating the history and triumph of the queer community in Portugal’s history. Hot weather makes it perfect for queer street parades, festivals, and cultural outdoor events!
