Lisbon, Portugal

Though I’m currently living in Spain, I was taking a quick look back on my time living in Portugal. On January 23rd, I traveled from Coimbra to Lisbon. It wasn’t the first time I’d been to the capital, but it was the first time I’d seen the sights and visited the tourist points. We finally saw A Ponte 25 de Abril, visited A Torre de Belém and looked down on Lisbon from the Parque Eduardo VII. We wandered through the Praça do Comércio and bought tickets for a hop-on/hop-off tour bus, much like the one I mentioned in my post about Porto (which you can have a peek at by clicking here), and it was such a good idea – we saw almost everything there was to see. I visited Lisbon in November of last year, and I wasn’t too struck by it. I much preferred Coimbra, Aveiro and other places I’d been in Portugal. But when I visited in November, it was cold and rainy, and we didn’t see much of the city itself.  But on January 23rd, we saw almost everything, and I completely fell in love with the city. I couldn’t believe how beautiful it is, and below I’ve left some of my photographs. I hope they give you an idea of just how stunning Portugal’s capital is!
