Hey guys, this is the concluding part of my Lisbon adventures. If you missed part 1, please read here.
16. Stumbled upon a 500-seater restaurant-- Time Out Mercado da Ribeira
This is one place we stumbled upon by chance. Time out Lisboa food hall is a newly renovated establishment that houses some of the best restaurants that have been highlighted in the Time Out Lisboa magazine
I have never been more confused about what to eat. With so many food options, it was hard narrowing down my choice.
The Monastery is where explorer Vasco da Gama spent his last night before embarking on the India expedition
How grand is the monastery!
Every inch of the architecture was well thought out and intricately crafted
Jeronimous Monstery was fun, but it was time for a little outdoor fun, so we crossed to the other side of the road walked to the Discoveries Monument
18. Visited the Discoveries Monument (Padrao dos Descobrimentos)
Lisbon is famous for its explorers such as Henry the Navigator, Ferdinand Magellan, the first explorer to circumnavigate the globe, and Vasco da Gama who discovered the sea route to India from Europe. This monument was built to honor the countries explorers and other notable figures.
The northern bank of the Tagus river is a monumental place as this is where ships set to sail to explore and trade
19. Viewed the Cristo Rei Statue from the bank of Tagus river
|In the far distance is the 25th of April Bridge and further on is the Christ The Redeemer, a replica of Rio de Janiero's famous statue|
20. We stomped all over Portugal
Belem tower was a military fort and was built to guard the entrance to the harbor.
24. Took tons of pictures
Lisbon is known for its tiles and tile building, so of course I had to take a picture of this pretty blue tiled building
There are colorful buildings on every street!
It was indeed happy times in Lisboa
Peace out Lisboa
Hope you guys enjoyed my Lisbon series. Barcelona adventures coming up soon. Have a fantastic weekend.
