“Architecture, design, fashion, nightlife… The small Portuguese capital is now one of the coolest cities in Europe. Again, we fell in love. We want to live in Lisbon right now. And the Portuguese are so cool…”
That’s how the French magazine IDEAT begins its special article about “Lisbonne” in its special 10th anniversary issue. The magazine about “ideas, design, escaping, architecture, and trends” chose to highlight Lisbon in this special May issue for being one of its favorite cities. It finds that the city “less than two hours from Paris, is beautiful and ages tremendously well, it’s welcoming and with a real soul.” It sees it as “Europe’s rising capital,” a new “rival” for “Barcelona, Berlin, London, and Paris.”
