The thing is, many people fall in love with Lisbon and just can’t stop talking about it, so at the very least, I wanted to share some photos of Lisbon with you so that you can get at least a little bit of a peek of what the city is like in the spring.
Basically, start planning those flights to Lisbon!
I love Europe because there are a ton of beautiful places with their own personalities. Lisbon is certainly no exception. If you want to go someplace with history, good food, great day trips, and beaches, this is a winner!
The Santa Justa elevator is an art piece. It’s a beautiful structure in and of itself but also gives great views. If you find your way to Carmo Convent and then walk around it to the right and go alongside it, you get to a set of stairs that leads to a restaurant and that metal walkway you see above. Just at that level, the views are amazing and you don’t have to pay a thing!
If you go down the stairs by the restaurant instead of up the stairs, you’ll get to a lovely area with a cool view of the elevator (the first photo) and the photo below. You’ll find a cafe and some chairs just to sit and watch the world go by in that same area.
One of the visual things about Portugal that I love is how much love they put into their tiles. It’s a beautiful thing. Portuguese tiles make everything better. If I could tile my house in them, I totally would!
The food in Lisbon is ah-mazing. Really. One of the best places to experience this is at the Time Out Market. When they built the market, they invited the best of the best here. You get it all in one place! While genius, it’s also very crowded, so try to visit during off-peak times.
Even just walking down the street is a treat. I always like to think about what it would be like to live on one of these streets. What would be your morning routine if you lived in Lisbon?
Those castle views! Wow! I mean. I was seriously in awe over this place. São Jorge Castle is the spot for some of the best Lisbon-watching. There was a stone seat right where I took this picture and I just wanted to plop down and not move.
So, what do you think? Is Lisbon somewhere you want to visit? It is just so pretty!! If you do want to hop a plane or train, book your accommodation here from my affiliate link to support A Wanderlust For Life. I’ll love you for it and you don’t pay a cent more!
As always, wishing you love and travels!
