The capital and largest city of Portugal . Aproximately 500 000 people . The architecture is very old and nice . The gastronomy and weather were great , at least at that time .
I spent 3 days , with my friend Sergio . We were coming from Madrid by car . Its only 5 hours driving , 600 kilometers . When you get Lisbon , everything looks older than Madrid . It wasnt so tourist at that time . If I compare to Spain , about prices , everything is little bit cheaper .
Walking around Lisbon its really nice . Plaza du Comercio and around city center . Its also really nice to visit Belem Tower and San Jeronimos Monastery .
In the mornings we were doing tourist thing , walking around city center . We also visited San Jorge s castle , amazing view from there , resting and taking some pictures . The place is great and also the way to reach the Castle . You need to walk always uphill . Street are very old and architecture great . You can also go by tramway , if you want to save energy or time .
About gastronomy , I focused in Bacalao . Its a fish they cook in 1000 different ways . I just tried 3 of them . A funny thing in Lisbon !! When you are gonna have a beer . They offer to you a little tapa , here its not Spain , I mean its not for free . If you eat the tapa , they are gonna charge you in your bill ,
Last day , before leaving Lisbon . We went to an Oceanarium and Nations Park zone . Its a very nice place . Its very new and many beautiful gardens around .
Hanging out Barrio Alto . It was local place . Many people were drinking a kind of wine , very similar to Spanish sangria , but stronger and little bit less sweet .
