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.

São Vicente de Fora and Pantheon

This picture was taken from Largo Portas do Sol. The two illuminated buildings are and the National Phanteon (mentioned before) and the Church of São Vicente de Fora (meaning “Monastery of St. Vincent Outside the [city] Walls”). The original monastery, built around 1147, was dedicated to the patron saint of Lisbon: Saint Vincent of Saragossa (from the Aragon region of Spain).
