More images of Lisbon

More scenes from Lisbon.

Look through any door way, and you'll find hidden courtyards and gardens.

The city's seven hills inspire all manner of baroque lifts and funiculars.

The old Portugeuse tradition of using ceramic tiles to decorate walls.

On the inside of a fountain looking out, in a waterpark on the site of the European Expo...

I love Lisbon as much as i do italy, and want to go back some day

Glad you liked them. Unfortunately it was work, so I didn't get to do any really fun things (though I did have a nice long walk on Thursday evening where I took most of these pictures).

The tiles are the wall of the old Pastelleria in Belem...

it looks even better when you stand at the foot of it, and look up, cos the clouds moving makes it seem as if it's falling

It's built by Gustav Eiffel. It's good for decades.

One of my favourite cities. Time to go back this year.
