Why invest in Lisbon?

Anyone who has ever been to Lisbon will tell you something positive about this city. Do you know why? We will explain: Lisbon is a city that can only be understood when one feels it under their skin ... or when one lives in it.

This city - adored by foreigners and loved by the Portuguese - has historically been the target of Moorish, Castilian and French wars. The struggle for the capture of the Portuguese capital is present in its history and in its enriching heritage.

But, after all, what is the attraction with Lisbon that appeals so much to whoever visits it? And why should we invest in this capital city? Today, we give you 5 reasons why it is worth investing in a property in Lisbon right now.

1. Portuguese Hospitality

In this city you will be welcomed by the people and the weather. From the first, with their Latin blood and the Portuguese tradition, you can expect sympathy, kindness and devotion. There will always be a solution to your problem and never miss an invitation or a kind suggestion. From the second, you can expect the wonderful Mediterranean climate, which provides the city natural light for about 300 days a year. This means mild temperatures and a very special shine on the stones of the city.
