Why Lisbon?

Nestled among seven hills, this beautiful city is the perfect stage for the Diving Talks show.

With a lively nightlife scene, festive markets, and vibrant museums, Lisbon provides plenty of options to burn off a few mandatory glasses of red wine while tasting tasty cheese, a generous serving of bacalhau, and days’ worth of pastéis de nata.

Things to do?

Lisbon is a cosmopolitan city, with good access and a few hours away from any European capital.

And there is so much to see and do that it is difficult to have enough time to see everything you want at your leisure… Here we present a selection of things from amongst all those you can do, which cannot be missed in the Portuguese capital.

Cordoaria Nacional – Torreão Poente

The Cordoaria Nacional, nestled along the scenic banks of the Tagus River in Lisbon, Portugal, stands as a monumental testament to the city’s rich maritime history. Originally constructed in the late 18th century during the reign of Queen Maria I, this historic building was initially designed to serve as a rope-making facility for the Portuguese navy, reflecting Portugal’s storied past as a seafaring nation. Spanning an impressive length, it was once among the largest industrial buildings of its era in Europe, equipped to produce the vital ropes and cables essential for naval and commercial ships.

Today, the Cordoaria Nacional has transcended its industrial origins to become a vibrant cultural hub in Lisbon. This grandiose structure, with its vast, open spaces, has been repurposed to host a variety of cultural events, exhibitions, and art installations. Its transformation from a maritime industrial facility to a center for arts and culture mirrors Lisbon’s own evolution from a historic port city to a modern, dynamic capital. The Cordoaria Nacional not only preserves a crucial piece of Portugal’s maritime heritage but also serves as a beacon of cultural and artistic expression, welcoming visitors from around the globe to explore its rich history and contemporary significance.
