Summer 2017

L I S B O N portugal

Clearing out my VSCO library & thought I’d share photos on here since it’s so aesthetically pleasing hehe. Hope y’all don’t mind the photo vomit. Here are some from my summer trip to Lisbon, Portugal. / 38.7223° N, 9.1393° W /

Baixa-Chiado

(I think, I might be wrong. The oldest bookstore in the world - Livraria Bertrand - is situated in this neighbourhood!)

📍 Elevador de Santa Justa A 19th century lift that takes you up to a viewing platform offering breath-taking views over central Lisbon.

Rossio

Ginjinha - a local cherry-flavoured liquor (previous picture)

📍Cabo de Roca The most Western point of Europe / the Atlantic

📍 Palácio da Pena, Sintra

Amorino’s 🍦

Praça do Comércio

The largest and grandest of Lisbon’s plazas (constructed in 1755), situated near the Tagus river. You can see the statue of King José I in the next picture!

The recipe remains the same since 1837. It’s estimated 20,000 Belém pastries are sold a day.

📍 Rossio Square The popular name of the Pedro IV Square, once the setting of popular revolts and celebrations, and now a preferred meeting place of locals and tourists alike.

Hope y’all enjoyed this photo spam, sorry it couldn’t be more informative - couldn’t rmb what some of the places were called. I would recommend the hostel I stayed in - Lost Inn! Super comfortable & it was amazing being able to make friends from all over. I actually made friends with an American girl & we ended up meeting in Barcelona as we were both in the city at the same time!!

Going through these photos (and having a wee cheeky Google to get the correct spelling of some places) makes me want to go back to Portugal so badly. I didn’t see enough. Portugal has got to be my favourite European country so far (I haven’t been to many) - it’s old world charm is out of this world. #dayre #sgtravel #dayretravel

    Yes, you are right. The oldest bookstore in the world is at Chiado and is called Bertrand :-)
