Situated on the Targus river (the same river as Toledo in Spain), Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world and is the capital of Portugal. Lisbon was totally redesigned and rebuilt after being devastated by the 1755 earthquake. One of Portugal's specialty foods is a custard tart called pastéis de nata.
