Lisbon, Portugal

Posted on

We visited Lisbon, Portugal on 7th May. This city was impressive although a little rough around the edges. Like with every major city, it has its poorly maintained and slightly unattractive area’s which were covered in graffiti. At one point I thought we were going into mafia territory with its big houses and high walls and gates. You can’t fault some of the architecture though and there was lots to look at in the way of statues and fountains.

We were welcomed into the dock by a fantastic view of the Christ the King statue and the 25th April Bridge which was built by the same company as the golden gate bridge in the U.S. Although parts of Lisbon were very interesting, after having a taster, I don’t think I would return.

The close-ups of the Marquess of Pombal Square was taken through the window of the coach we were travelling in. Information for Marquess of Pombal Square can be found HERE  , Christ the King Statue HERE , 25th April Bridge HERE , Belém Tower or the Tower of St Vincent HERE and Monument to the Discoveries HERE

  1. I’ve been enjoying your posts on the cruise so far and looking forward to the rest. A huge group of us are going in July with Independence of the Seas and I wasn’t able to find anyone blogging about trips until you did! Thanks for sharing!
