Lisbon Weekly Photo

The idea came up after visiting several “DailyPhoto” sites, particularly the one from Paris, which is my other favorite city. Since LisbonDailyPhoto was getting posts very irregularly, I decided to create this place. Although my skills and my Exilim Z110 are very limited, I hope to deserve your visit. Please leave your comments (any comments) so I can improve.

Campo de Santa Clara

Campo de Santa Clara (nothing to do with Ame's Santa Clara in California) is the place where Lisbons Flea Market takes place every Tuesday morning and all day Saturday: Feira da Ladra. It's one of the most interesting and beautiful zones of the city. In the neighborhoods we can find the National Pantheon, Santa Clara Market (the oldest indoor market in the city still standing), São Vicente de Fora Church, etc.

Lisbon Half Marathon

The 17th edition of the International Lisbon Half Marathon took place this Sunday. To most of the 36.000 participants (this blogger included) it was an excuse to cross the 25 de Abril Bridge. No doubt it was worthwhile.

Sé de Lisboa

A downtown’s gray Saturday morning with the “Sé Catedral de Lisboa” as a background. The Lisbon Cathedral is the oldest church in the city. Initially called Santa Maria Maior, its construction, in the place of the main mosque of Lisbon, started in 1147 after the crusaders conquered Lisbon to the Moors. The first bishop was an English crusader named Gilbert of Hastings.

Lunar Eclipse

This night the Moon passed through the Earth's shadow creating a Lunar Eclipse. It was fully visible here in Portugal (as in the rest of Europe) and will be partly visible over eastern Americas.
The next Lunar Eclipse will occur this year on the 28th August.
