It was nearly impossible to get an approach shot of the Tower of Belem without other tourists. Ah well, this couple makes a rather nice addition to the beautiful flowering trees. Photo taken in August 2016.
The cloisters at Jerónimos Monastery are just gorgeous and filled with so many beautiful details! It's a UNESCO World Heritage site and a must-see during any visit to Lisbon. Photo taken in August 2016.
I discovered this mural while wandering the streets of Lisbon last August. With the recent Brexit vote and continuing problems with migration, I found this to be a timely message. Are we building society up or tearing it down brick by brick? This mural was painted by Portuguese artist Andrea Tarli. More murals can be found here. Photo taken in August 2016.
It seemed like there were colorful murals on almost every corner in Lisbon! I just love the size of this one and all the joyous activity.
Luckily, this mural had a signature. It appears to be part of a larger project; I hope this means these artists are working on murals in other places too. This one really made me smile. More murals can be found here. Photo taken in August 2016.
I just love how European cities always have such beautiful, old train stations. Lisbon'sEstação de Caminhos de Ferro do Rossio is no exception. More treasures can be found here. Photo taken in August 2016.
