    Glazed Tiles.
    Lisbon has it's own museum dedicated to this art. Many of the city facades are covered with them. And in Azeitao in Arrabida (near Setúbal) you can buy besides wines and cheese also glazed tiles panels.

    Lisbon is a city spread out over a string of hills, and the sidewalks are paved with cobblestones, so walking can be a tiring thing even with comfortable shoes.
    The cobblestone streets are very impressive but what even impressed me more were the sidewalks throughout Portugal. Most of the sidewalks are also made of small stones and inlaid into these sidewalks are beautiful patterns. These mosaic patterns consist of three-inch cubes of cream colored limestone and dark gray basalt stones.

    It won´t hurt you when you leave the crowdy city-centre behind you, and enter the old Arabic quarter, Alfama. Here you will find a lot of beautiful alleys, old Portugese women and men, and photogenic sceneries....

    Wander through the Alfama

    The Se

    Wander through the Alfama and check out the Cathedral (the Sé). The inscription reads that 'the Sé is so old, we don't really know how old it is.' It's a great Romanesque cathedral that impresses in its grand simplicity. Also, there's a tomb inside with a statue of the man lying on top. No big deal there, right. At his feet is a statue of his dog. How cool is that? That's another plus in Portugal's column!

    No need to go to the Azulejo museum to see the famous tiles - there are plenty of examples around the streets of Lisbon.

    I love the way the city decorates the public areas such as the subway station or the underpass of the freeway.

    Public Toilet

    Public Toilet, Lisbon

    This can be found near the entrance to the S. Jorge Castle. It seems to be one of the old public toilets from the end of the 19th century.

    A religious procession by the streets. All the parishes are represented.
    Church and Army go together : the Republican Guards riding horses are ahead.

    The best way to see the most beautiful parts of the city is taking tram no. 28. Lisbon has a lot of trams, and some of them will show you some nice places and locations.

    I did notice this vending machine. I relized it was a french fries machine. It would serve you hot crispy french fries with a push of a botton and one U.S. dollar.
