Visiting Lisbon [Part 3/3]: Above the City

We finish our stay in Lisbon in this third and final part of our travel series. After our trip to Albufeira in the second part, we are now back in the city of Lisbon, this time on a local overlook. The sweeping views of the city can really take you in. Even though the day wasn't the nicest it didn't stop the photo taking and exploring. Enjoy the final part.

This is a multi-part travel series. Other parts include:
Part One: The Inner City and Oceanarium
Part Two: A Trip to Albufeira
Part Three: Above the City

From up above the real beauty of the city becomes visible.


Rossio Square is located in the downtown of Lisbon and has been one of its main squares since the Middle Ages. It has been the setting of popular revolts and celebrations, bullfights and executions, and is now a preferred meeting place of Lisbon natives and tourists alike.



The streets of Lisbon, rush hour about to start:





The urban area extends beyond the administrative city limits with an estimated population of 2.7 million, on an area of 958 square kilometres (370 sq mi), making Lisbon the 11th most populous urban area in the European Union.



The End

I hope you enjoyed our stay on the Atlantic Sea.
We will be back to the cold winter days again soon.

Have a great weekend.

  1. The similar colored roof make the photos quite remarkable. Do you know the history of the roof...why the similarity...code...ordinance...availability of materials??

    1. I'm not sure why it is that way, but it's the same look like in Italy and here as well. Maybe it's a south European thing.
