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.

I have a thing for arches. There were so many beautiful examples of them in Lisbon, especially here at the Jerónimos Monastery. Photo taken in August 2016.

A look at some of the beautiful details in the Jerónimos Monastery.
I think they look especially good in black and white.
I can never resist a fierce lion! Photos taken in August 2016.

Before entering the Monastery itself, you have the opportunity to visit the church of Santa Maria.
The altar was really beautiful with lots of wonderful paintings and other details. Photos taken in August 2016.

I just love arches and there were plenty to be found in Lisbon! These line the Praça do Comércio, a square I strolled through at almost all times of the day. 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.
