I am in love with Portugal! The Portuguese people are so generous and kind. The nature and landscapes are amazing! The buildings, tiles everywhere, colours, so happy, also great vibes!
What to write about Lisbon… Well, my mind keeps screaming. IT IS AMAZING! I love Lisbon! Words will definitely fail so I will add some pictures, but better you go and see for yourself.
The city is built on seven hills and that makes that you have a lot of viewpoints, Miradouros, everywhere in the city. It also makes that you are often walking up and downhill; here we go sightseeing and training the calves at the same time!
Castelo de São Jorge, built on the highest hill of the city, the place to be for watching the sunset over the city and the river the Taag.
It is an old city with its own ambience, it has a lot of different suburbs with a different feeling. Wander around in the small streets in Alfama, go shopping in Chiado or enjoy one of the squares in Baixa. A must do; Belém, I personally like to walk there, it is a beautiful walk along the river. Along the walk you come across a few different highlights for example; Ponte 25 de Abril, the famous bridge of Lisbon, MAAT, which I wrote a blog about that you can find here and Torre de Belém.
When in Belém don’t forget to go to the bakery famous bakery ‘Pastéis de Belém’ and eat a Pastéis de Belém. Portugal is famous for its pastel de nata, it is a custard tart and it is delicious. De bakery in Belém is according to my taste and that from many more people the best ones you can get!
Take also a visit on the other side of the river, a beautiful area and it will give you a great view over the whole city!
