We visited Lisbon for the first time in May 2004 for a long week end of 5 days.
Despite the latitude of the city, the weather was cold, windy and a bit rainy. Fortunately for the inhabitants, the weather became fine just the day of our departure.
I had in mind few pictures about Lisbon :
- Cabral living the habor to discover the Brasil in 1500 (nice man who chose a date easy to memorize in order to help the pupils of the future)
- Vasco de Gama, a real traveller who made the first world tour but forgot to come back
- the earthquake of 1755 known in France because Voltaire wrote some memorable pages about it in Candide.
On the crenels, the Portuguese crosses.
The Tower is the major landmark of the city.
The military parade preceeds the religious procession.
