If there was something I really loved about Lisbon, it were views over the city. The first specatular view over Lisbon was through the plane window as we were landing. It was really special , just as the city would like to welcome us.
There are so many beautiful viewing points in Lisbon, it’s hard to overlook them. Practically every top of a hill gives you an incredible view over a certain part of a city. We haven’t been looking for them at all, but found them by chance as a result of wandering the streets amilessly.
The only one we didn’t find by chance was visiting castle “Castelo de São Jorge”. The castle looked quite promising from down bellow so we decided to give it a shot. We were not disappointed. The castle offers some nice views over the city and the visit is worth paying the entrance price. We climbed the castle towers as the sun sinked down to the pont that everything looked even nicer. It was the so called “golden hour”.
After a whole week in Lisbon, the city grew on us. And the not-so-good first impression was negligible. “We’d like to come back once again in a next couple of years“. Those were our thoughts as we left Lisbon behind. We headed to the coast in pursuit of beaches, keen for some new adventures. And more about that in my next post.
