The cities of Lisbon, in Portugal, and Edinburgh, in Scotland, come together in an exhibition that is being held at the Museum of Lisbon until December 22.

The exhibition is called A Tale of Two Cities. It is presented by Nomad Exhibitions in association with Historic Environment Scotland and the Museum of Lisbon.

According to a note by the Museum of Lisbon, the two capital cities “have shared key periods of ambitious expansion and change, and are impressive examples of both urban innovation and historical preservation”.

“Using artworks, artefacts and archival material, as well as film and digital content, this exhibition demonstrates how the cities have changed over the centuries in response to their geography, to natural disasters, and to the needs of their citizens for inspiring and effective places to live, work, worship and learn,” the note explains further.

The Museum of Lisbon states that this international exhibition — being held at the museum’s West Tower — promotes “different ways to rediscover” the Portuguese capital.
