With more than 600,000 inhabitants and over 2.8 million in the catchment area, the capital is one of the largest urban economic areas in the EU.
Portugal, and particularly Lisbon as seat of government, has taken advantage of the recent years of economic recovery to attract large international investors and to enter the list of the most interesting real estate markets.
Lisbon is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Hieronymites Monastery and the Torre de Belém and with its proximity to the wild beaches of the Atlantic coast, it attracts visitors from all over the world. Coupled with its booming start-up and IT scene, Lisbon has an incomparable attractiveness and power of attraction.
“Investors often see the Iberian Peninsula as one whole. It is not by chance that Lisbon is - besides Madrid - one of the most attractive cities for real estate investments in the region. It forms one of the most powerful tourism markets in the world, has a high level of education and offers extremely attractive investment opportunities.”
