Lisbon Castle and the Portugal postcard
As soon as I saw the flag at Lisbon Castle, I knew that this was where I wanted to photograph my Portugal postcard. Now I’m home, I can’t wait to include the postcard in the Lisbon section of my travel scrapbook!
Views of Lisbon from the Belèm Tower
At the top of the Belèm Tower, you can see views of the city and the orange roofs so I figured that this would be a good spot to take the photo.
Rua Augusta Arch
We waited about 15 minutes to get this photo, as it seems that when you want a tram to appear, they go past far less frequently. However, I think it was worth sticking around for this picture because it wouldn’t be quite the same without the trams there!
Praça do Comércio
For the Praça do Comércio (Lisbon’s main square) photo, I chose a panoramic-style postcard of the square, that showcases how wide it is in real life.
Colourful architecture in Lisbon
I bought this postcard because I loved the colours of the buildings. We found a pink building in the city centre that had a similar street light to the ones in the postcard, so I stopped outside and took a photo with the postcard in my hand.
The Jerónimos Monastery was the first tourist sight that we visited in Lisbon. On our final day, we went back into central Belèm so that we could go up the Belèm Tower and I got my postcard shot of the monastery on the way to the tower.
