I’ve showed many places I’ve visited throughout the years, some many awesome places, but while in Portugal this past weeks, I realized that I haven’t mentioned my gorgeous city of Lisbon yet. Now, when I’m in Lisbon I rarely go sightseeing, because I’ve lived there most of my life, and my first instinct is not to snap photos, but I took the opportunity that I had to visit downtown a couple of times to meet friends, and I took some pictures of that part of town.
I’ll only show 2 parts of the Lisbon Downtown, because I didn’t have time to explore further, and the weather wasn’t helping. On the first day I went to the Baixa-Chiado zone:
The second day I managed to go to Lisbon, again, to have lunch with the same friends as before, I went to a slightly different zone, right beside the other one, and I went down to Praça do Comércio and then right back up to Rossio and Restauradores, through Rua Augusta. I know this is all gibberish to you, so I’ll give you pictures. Too bad about the rain though…
Unfortunately, this is it. I promise to try to snag more pictures of different places of Lisbon the next times I’m there, deal?

I’m so happy that I finally recognize places that you talk about XD
LOL, I would be very worried if you didn’t recognize these places 😛
Especially because I spend a lot of time there shopping 😀
😀 I thought of you when I was there on Starbucks 😛
I was there last weekend. I had to had a frappucino because it was to hot in that day XD
are you serious? is it only raining when i’m there?
It was on saturday before the day that started raining. I think it was the day before you went. It was really hot but I had been on Colombo the whole morning and then I went to Baixa-Chiado so it might have been because of that 😛
oh, yeah, I remember you telling me… bad timming from my part
Yeah. Now it’s impossible to go there. It’s been raining almost nonstop since last sunday
eheh, since the day I was there 😀
Great pictures even if it was rainy! Even though I live in Europe, Lisbon seems so different and rustic.
This part of Lisbon has a very particular style, called Pombaline, because it was all reconstructed after the huge earthquake and tsunami in 1755 🙂
Great pictures! I hope I can visit Lisbon someday…after all, France is not that far! :p
that’s right! but hey, I live right next to France and I haven’t been there as much as I should.
Well, let’s hope that this year will change that for both of us! 🙂
that would be cool 😀
Oh wow it looks lovely 🙂
I’ve been to Lisbon this summer and I’m so in love with this beautiful city. Can’t wait to go back!
🙂 that’s great to hear
Lisbon looks gorgeous! I absolutely love the architecture! 😊
I’ll have to show you more 😄
Awesome! I want to go to Lisbon someday!
Yay!! You should!
Great post about Lisbon!
