Lisbon in pictures: Part 1

Back in autumn last year, I spent a couple of weeks in Portugal. Lisbon was the first stop for four days, before we went on to Vilamoura in the Algarve.

Here are some shots of Lisbon, one of the prettiest capital cities I’ve been to.

Here’s the AirBnB we stayed at. It was in a great central location just off Rossio Square in a bustling backstreet lined with restaurants. They even welcomed us with custard tarts!
