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.
- 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
