  • Lisbon neighborhoods and atmosphere

    Lisbon Favorites

    I stayed just off of Avenida da Liberdade (at the Ibis Hotel) and I spent lots of time strolling up and down. This was especially so when I just arrived in Lisbon and my room was not yet ready. I was dead tired and walked up and down this palm lined avenue just trying to keep awake. There are plenty of cafes, pasteurises and restaurants here to...

    Sintra Favorites

    Green - that's the word that better describes Sintra. The steep hills topped with castles and palaces are all covered by a marvelous carpet of gardens and woods, filling the spaces among the classical buildings carefully integrated in the landscape. Circulating and parking is hard, but... who cares?

  • Palácio Nacional de Sintra - National...

    Sintra Favorites

    Built by King Manuel BLAZONS HALL or Sala dos Brasos, has magnificent wooden coffered domed ceilings. This room was by far the most splendid and one of my favourites. Tiles were specially made for the King in Seville. Tile Panels bear Islamic motifs and lend an Arab feeling to many of the rooms. The sign in Blazons Hall reads: "The ceiling in...

    Lisbon Favorites

    The eastern part of Lisbon was awful, a true shame for all. The needs to embellish the area to receive EXPO exhibition, gave a "face-lift" to a large area, and some old and degraded buildings were recovered. Now, travelling in Marvila it's a true pleasure to those that once knew the area and confirmed that, when man wants everything has a...

  • Palácio da Pena - Pena Palace

    Sintra Favorites

    "I offer a candy to who guesses Pena's style". It's a funny challenge: what style? All of them are there, but none of them dominant. The palace seems to be a collection of styles and influences, without any kind of option or preference. Maybe kitsch, maybe revivalist, maybe too complex, maybe humorist, maybe an accident, it is there, and...

    Cascais is a small town on the Atlantic coast, located some 30 km west of Lisbon. Once it was a fishing village. Today it is a famous tourist resort. One of the attractions of Cascais is the Palace of Castro Guimaraes. The Igreja Matriz (the main church) has some paintings by Josefa de Obidos. Unfortunately I couldn't see them, because the...

    When I arrived in Sintra, I took the bus uphill from the train station and it stopped at the Tourist Information Office, just along from the Sintra National Palace. It's a great place to get information and maps before you set out and explore what Sintra has to offer as far as tourist sites, restaurants, cafes, hotels and transportation options...

    Now it's about time to start learning some Portuguese: "Direita" is a Portuguese word that means either right or straight. Each city uses to have its "Direita" street that, by coincidence is generally one of the least straight of them. Don't try to understand - that's Portuguese logic. King José statue in Praça do Comércio is the subject to a...

  • Castelo dos Mouros - Moorish Castle

    Sintra Favorites

    The "jungle" that has grown up around and even INSIDE Castelo dos Mouros, can at times be amazing, take these photos for instance. We are standing below, beside, on or even inside walls of stone, several meters high and looking out you can barely notice them for all the greenery.

This is the site of the Panteao Naciònal; the National Pantheon where some presidents of Portugal and several writers are buried.

  • Azulejos (tiles)

    Lisbon Favorites

    Now, if I'd had my own camera and no injured knee, there'd have been dozens of photos of Lisbon's tiles to choose from to show here - I just loved them - but with MrL's finger on the shutter most of the time and his eye and my thoughts on other things, most of them are just in my mind's eye. The variety is extraordinary, beautiful blue and white...
