JOURNAL LISBON

Last week I went to Lisbon, the capital of Portugal and the city where you can still enjoy a sunny 15 degrees in January. Lisbon is a beautiful city for a city trip – especially if you love a bit of history, stunning buildings and inspiring museums. It’s also the perfect beginning point of a roadtrip through Portugal (check out Villa Extramuros for example or go to chic beach town Comporta and stay in this house if you’re with family or friends or in these two stunning fishermen’s huts if you’re with your lover. Or drive to the Algarve and stay in Lagos or Tavira). Apart from visiting the cool spots I’m gonna share with you later this week you have to do a couple of things when you’re in Lisbon.

 

Try the local sweet dish Pasteis De Nata. You’ll love it.

 

Go to the Maat Museum with tram 15 from the Praca do Comercio. If you’re not even going inside the museum it’s a beautiful walk with the famous Ponte 25 de Abril in front of you.

 

Go to the LX Factory (take the same tram as to the Maat Museum).

 

Stroll around in areas such as Baixa, Chiado or Alfama for the beautiful houses and to see the trams.

 

And don’t forget to see the sunset from one of the viewing points. Enjoy!

 

For now: let’s see Lisbon through my eyes!
