Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon Portugal. May 8 – May10. 2023

Lisbon is Portugal’s hilly, coastal capital city and is known for its unique historical center, stunning architecture, colorful azulejos (ceramic tiles), and fantastic food. It also has a fascinating history, filled with rulers, invasions, destructions, and re-constructions.  The cities iconic bridge – The Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge– is nearly a duplicate of the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge.   Standing above the city across the delta stands the 350 ft tall Sanctuary of Christ the King Statue,  The statue was a gift from Brazil and is a duplicate of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro.

We booked three days at the Lisbon Sofitel located in the heart of the city.   To get a feel for the city,  we hired a young lady named Katarina  to tour us around for a couple hours in a tuck tuck.   She showed us most of the city and we decided to visit a couple of the places by foot over the next couple days.
