Participants in the 2014 International Law Association Regional Conference are offered a glimpse of the city Lisboa. This is a historic capital, a potpourri of unusual character and charm, where 800 years of cultural influences mingle with modern trends and life styles creating spectacular contrasts.
A short distance away from the city centre visitors find long strechted beaches for a refreshing dive or enjoy surfing, paddle or kite surf on the ocean waves.
Why not also take the opportunity to enjoy some holidays along the Atlantic coast or in the warmer area of Algarve, in the beautiful Alentejo or in the wonderful city of Oporto, along the River Douro.
Wherever you go you will find the warmth of Portuguese people, very good food and magnificent views. We would be happy to provide ideas and suggestions for an extended visit in Portugal. Please let us know if we can be of assistance.
