Day by day, Lisbon popularity is increasing. It’s easy to understand why. The capital of Portugal combines several factors that make it a very appealing destination.
Sun, delicious food, narrow and charming streets, breathtaking views with every new step, amazing urban art. Just to list a few examples. To characterise Lisbon faithfully a whole day wouldn´t be enough to describe its essence.
For 5 years I had the privilege of living in this beautiful city. Before saying goodbye I spent two weeks photographing it and gathering my favourites experiences.
Although the true love for Lisbon arises when walking the narrow streets of Alfama or feeling the sun beating in the face on a day that promised to be rainy, I still believe that photographies are the most effective way to be surrendered to the charm of a place and to trigger the urge to visit it.
