Discover boutique hotels for city breaks in Lisbon, Portugal

Home to artful azulejo tilework, the Age of Discovery and a custard tart that spawned a movement, Lisbon is a city as soulful as the fado tunes that soundtrack its streets. Each district tells a different tale: discover Alfama’s mediaeval Moorish charm and Baixa’s Enlightenment-era avenues, or wind your way to chic Chiado if a browse in the world’s oldest bookshop appeals. By night, follow the locals to bohemian Bairro Alto, where the bars and restaurants thrum with the mournful melodies of Portugal’s traditional music.
