I must admit, I underestimated the beauty of the Portuguese city, having always dismissed Lisbon as a potential city trip destination until recently. We decided to head to Lisbon at the end of Spring for 4 days. Unfortunately, we just hit a bit of a cold front, giving the impression summer was still a few weeks away. Luckily, this didn't stop us from enjoying the Portuguese Capital. The views over the city with its distinctive red roof tiles, historical Sintra, the delicious Past\u00e9is de Bel\u00e9m, the magnificent Jeronimos monastery, it's hard not to fall in love with Portuguese largest city. All around Lisbon you'll find these beautiful Azulejos, ceramic tiles placed on walls of churches, houses, schools bars and restaurants. A day trip to Sintra is a must while visiting Lisbon.
