If you follow me, you may have read the previous post about my holidays. I loved my trip to Lisbon in June so much, I couldn’t resist photographing the things which make the character of this city.
Everywhere you look there are beautiful tile-fronted buildings, alleys, kiosks, parks, fairs and farm markets. I have done my best to edit my photos so that you will get a sense of how lovely Lisbon is.
