Lisbon Photo Essay

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 Pastéis de Belém, the magnificent Jeronimos monastery, it’s hard not to fall in love with Portuguese largest city.
