World War II spies used to gather in Lisbon

In the 2nd world war, Lisbon swarmed with spies from the main sides in conflict. 

You heard about Portugal’s neutrality, right? Salazar, the Portuguese dictator managed not to take sides. The country became the safest and closest way to communication from Continental Europe and the rest of the world.

Americans, Germans and British agents, informers would take advantage of the Portuguese territory, especially in Lisbon. 

Refugees trying to escape to America were also stuck in this amazing city. 

Maybe this is the historical explanation as to why Lisbon is so welcoming to foreign visitors.

Everything was perfect. I got all answers about my questions. 

Investor from Turkey

Ryan was an excellent real estate agent, he really steered me in the right direction based on what I said was important to me. Living in another country, I wasn't as familiar with the city as he is. Where I thought I wanted to live and what I truly wanted were not the same. He took the time to listen and figure out the best spot for me, and we are very happy with it - far more than we would have been elsewhere.
