The climate of Lisbon (Portugal)
Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and is situated on the banks of the Tagus River. The center consists of two parts, the old part and the new part. The new part was built on the remains of the old part which was destroyed by an earthquake and a tidal wave in 1755. The old part is very popular among tourists because it has the structure of an old city. Many beautiful old buildings can be found in the old part. Among them are Mosteiro dos Jerónimos and the Torre de Belém, both Unesco world heritage sites. In the center of the old part the beautiful Praca do Comércio can also be found. Renting a car in Lisbon gives you complete freedom in transportation. It allows you to explore attractions anywhere in Lisbon without the difficulties of public transport.
The weather in Lisbon is mainly determined by the warm Gulf Stream that passes the city. Lisbon has a maritime climate with mild winters and fairly cool summers. The climate of Lisbon has some characteristics of a Mediterranean climate. Extremes in temperatures are uncommon; during the winter subzero temperatures are uncommon, during the summer temperatures above 35 degrees are uncommon. Winters may be very wet. In combination with a fierce wind it may feel slightly colder than it actually is. Because Lisbon is situated in the vicinity of the Atlantic Ocean temperatures here will be slightly lower than in the interior.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
