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.

Cais do Sodré

Although its official name is Duque da Terceira Square, everybody knows it by Cais do Sodré. It’s one the most important transport interface of the city. There we can take a ferry to Tagus left bank, a train to Estoril or Cascais or the subway or bus for any spot in Lisbon. Duque da Terceira was a hero in the Peninsular War that united Portugal, Great Britain and later Spain against France (more on that in a future post).

Praia da Torre

When the weather gets warmer Torre Beach in Carcavelos is one the first places to get crowded. Anyway, the Carruagem Bar, an old train carriage converted into a bar, is always a nice place to lunch or have a drink just over the sea. Forte de São Julião da Barra, a 16th century fortress, is visible on the right.
