Lisbon is so much more than the commercial capital of Portugal. It lies on the sought-after Costa do Sol, the Portuguese Riviera, and was the European Capital of Culture in 1994. Its settlement dates back to Neolithic times, and it was also the centre of the devastating conflict between Rome and Carthage. Its football team has conquered Europe, and it has staged the MTV European Music Awards. Lisbon is a diverse city, with roots as old as humanity itself. When you buy or sell Lisbon event tickets, you're making a tiny contribution to this vast history, in a way.
The many treasures of Lisbon
On arrival in Lisbon, most modern tourists take one of two paths. One group clutch Benfica tickets on the way to Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica. The city is of course home to the once all-conquering Sport Lisboa e Benfica football club. The other rushes excitedly towards the coast, sporting Praia do Meco tickets, in anticipation of the rousing rock festivals that have sprung up in the area. There is also a third small group, whose interests might be in the minority, but who visit some of the most fascinating places in Lisbon. This includes the National Museum of Ancient Art, whose art collection counts among the largest in the world. Portugal also has a thriving theatre and music scene, and Lisbon event tickets will put you at the very centre.
Lisbon welcomes all cultural tastes
One of the many cultural centres of Lisbon opens up to you with Teatro Nacional Sao Carlostickets, which you can buy from StubHub. For those who are inclined towards classical musical, there is the Festival Estoril Lisboa – a yearly celebration of orchestras and soloists, organ and chamber music that stretches back to 1974. For those seeking more contemporary vibes, Altice Arena tickets will do you nicely. For sight-seeing, you'll definitely have to put Lisbon Cathedral and Jeronimo's Monastery on your list, as they're two of the most iconic tourist sites in Lisbon. You simply can't miss Castelo de São Jorge, which is possibly what strikes people first when they visit the city, towering over it. Buy Lisbon event tickets on StubHub to join in.
