Lisbon seen from Tejo on a winter afternoon
If there's a city where everything seems to fit perfectly into the landscape, it's Lisbon. The river would not be the same without its monuments and they would not be the same without the river...
About a year after visiting Lisbon on foot, I now leave the perspective of the same city, but from the Tejo River.
Lisbon also dresses in winter colors to show all its beauty!
The shapes and colors of the buildings blend in with those of the boats.
"Padrão dos Descobrimentos"
Lisbon immortalizes in Belém the greatness of the discoveries with D. Henrique Infant at the head of his caravel!
Praça do Comércio, formerly Terreiro do Paço
Viewed from the river, the sculptural perfection is magnificent and this is one of the most visited areas of the city. For more than 200 years it was the residence of the Portuguese kings. In the middle, the Cais das Colunas, where illustrious former rulers disembarked in the city.
Built between 1514 and 1520, the Belém Tower was part of the defense system of the city of Lisbon. Classified as a world heritage site by Unesco since 1983, it is next door to the Jerónimos Monastery.

Could it be San Francisco? Naaa... they don't have "Cristo Rei"...
