Lisbon in pictures: Part 2

By the time day three came around my feet were seriously sore from wandering through Lisbon’s beautifully tiled and cobbled streets in ill-chosen sandals.

But it was worth it to capture more of the city and experience its celebrated light, bouncing off the azulejo.

For a stunning vantage point down towards the city, head to Eduardo VII Park.

Head to: 

  • Castelo de Sao Jorge for breathtaking  views over the city and River Tejo 
  • Bairro Alto after dark for quirky bars and plenty of atmosphere 
  • UNESCO World Heritage Site Torre de Belem for stunning 16th century architecture. Then walk up to the Padrao dos Descobrimentos statue
  • The subway in Alcantara-Mar for unique graffiti. There’s a good blog post on Lisbon’s graffiti here
  • One of the tiny Ginjinha sellers on the corner of Rossio square for an afternoon tipple of cherry liqueur
