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 .

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 ,

  • I’d love to go to Lisbon. In one of your photos I see the limestone cobbled patterned pavements that we’ve come across in the Algarve and in Madeira. I love the old Portuguese architecture with its bright colours and designs, iron grilles and balconies. In the eastern Algarve many old houses are covered with brightly patterned tiles.

  • Hello Ruben, you have to make a special edition by medieval castles of Europe, Portugal has many surrounded by beautiful picturesque villages.
    In the North you will find villages and small towns in the highlands, the food is worthy of kings and at very affordable prices. In nature, Peneda-Geres National Park (Rated as a national park), we also find good Parks in the rest of the country with fabulous species and an immaculate charm.

    • Thanks !! Id like to visit those places . Im gonna start traveling by bicycle . I guess its gonna be easier for visiting villages and small towns !
