Lisbon already knows what it’s like to host the official start of La Vuelta. In fact, it was the first foreign city to host a race start. Specifically, it happened in the 1997 edition when the Portuguese capital welcomed the first three stages of the competition. This historic edition concluded in Madrid with the victory of Alex Zulle.

The start in Lisbon, Oeiras, and Cascais will be the fifth on foreign soil in the 89-year history of the race. Apart from Lisbon, mentioned earlier, the race also started from Assen (2009), Nimes (2017), and Utrecht (2022).
