Lisbon Through the Ages


6  April 2017


Our first offical day on our trip we spent in Lisbon, Portugal. We started our morning with breakfast in our hotel which overlooks a beautiful square. Lisbon is vibrant with all the buildings multi coloured and plastered with amazing mosaics, making each one unique. After our breakfast, we headed to the St Jorge Castle, an heritage castle which gives you a great view of the city of Portugal. Next, we went to the Cathedral, which had beautiful architecture. After, we took a tuktut to the Belem Tower, which looked over the water and then we walked over to the St Jerome Monastery. The monastery had beautiful grounds and the church was grand with amazing stained glass. Our day in Lisbon was great, spending it sight seeing and admiring the historical sites and unique buildings. Today was definitely one to remember.
