The Port of Lisbon is located between the River Tagus and the Atlantic Ocean. As it is a natural port, located in the vast estuary of the Tagus, in a water basin of 32.000ha, sheltered and deep, its advantages offer the best navigating conditions both for large ships, namely transoceanic vessels, but also for any nautical sport.
The geo-strategic position of the Portuguese coast, at the crossing of the main maritime routes of international commerce and on the first European Atlantic front, opens the possibilities of attracting direct transatlantic traffic, which demands terminals with great depths, a rare situation which is found at the Port of Lisbon.
Integrated in the transeuropean network of transports, the Port conciliates in its domains, an important multimodal logistics infrastructure which gives it the advantage of being the “meeting port” of maritime, railway and road transport.
The Port of Lisbon is a large European port with an Atlantic orientation, whose geo-strategic centrality gives it a high statute in the logistics chain of international commerce and in the main cruise circuits.
