(Esta e a Ponte 25 de Abril) (Here is the 25th of April Bridge)
Hello everyone, as I have said perviously our trip was short but very pleasant. Its always a pleasure to revisit the places where I had some of my best childhood memories while growing up. Lisbon is one of those places. When I was little, my parents and I used to visit the city as much as we possibly could. Although, back in the day lisbon used to be much colder (during winter) and not so hot (during summer) or maybe I wasn't used to the cold as I was living in a country with the summer average of 40°c. For some reason we only used to go here during winter time (Europe) which nowadays I wonder why if it was so cold but that's all I can remember.
I hope these photos helps you getting to know the city a little bit.
Olá a todos, como eu já tinha dito antes a nossa viagem foi curta, mas muito agradável. É sempre um prazer rever os lugares onde eu tive algumas das melhores memórias de infância, enquanto crescia. Lisboa é um desses lugares. Quando eu era pequena, os meus pais e eu costumáva-mos visitar a cidade sempre que podíamos. Embora, antigamente Lisboa costumava ser muito mais fria (no inverno) e não tão quente (durante o verão), ou talvez eu não estava acostumada com o frio porque estava a viver em um país com média de 40 ° c durante o verão. Por alguma razão nos só costumava-mos ir durante o inverno (Europa), que nos dias de hoje eu me pergunto porque se fazia tanto frio, mas isso é tudo que eu consigo me lembrar.
Espero que estas fotos ajudem-vos a conhecer um pouco mais a cidade.

Is one of the most visited places in Lisbon, the view from above is breathtaking- it first opened in 1902 .

In the middle ages it used to be where executions, celebrations and bullfights happened and now its one of the must popular places for people to meet.

(Pasteis de natas/Pastes the Belem/ Portuguese egg Tart Pastry)
A trip to Lisbon is never complete without the infamous Pastries de nata from the best in the world 'The Casa Pasteis de Belem'.
(The casa Pasteis de Belem)
Is located in Santa Maria de Belem since 1837, they have never shared their original recipe with anyone and to make sure it stays that way, employees have to sign a contract.
They produce between 20,000 to 30,000 natas per day.
