Municipality (with the same name) of the Lisbon district.

Lisbon is situated at the mouth of the Tagus River and is the westernmost capital of a mainland European country.





Lisbon Volcanic Complex: this complex was formed 72 million years ago by several important volcanic episodes. The outcrops of the LVC can be seen between Lisbon and Mafra, about 40 km to the north, showing basaltic sheets, tufs, pyroclasts, volcanic breccias, etc, accompanied by a dense net of eruptive dykes.

Basalt quarries (all in the strata of the Lisbon Volcanic Complex)
