Picture Perfect Portugal.

Lisbon is a fantastic city for soaking up sites and relaxing by the waterfront.   We enjoyed pitchers of Sangria while sitting along the Tagus River and admiring the view of the 25 de Abril Bridge. The bridge is an enormous suspension bridge that looks much like the Golden Gate Bridge.  The weather was beautiful and there were musicians in the square keeping us entertained.  What a way to spend the afternoon!

We also enjoyed seeing the beautiful historic limestone buildings along the Praco do Comercio, the Belem Tower, the Cristo Rei statue overlooking the Tagus, the expansive and beautiful Rossio Square and the gothic Eledor de Santa Justa.

A picture perfect day in a picture perfect city!
