I’ve always slated Lisbon as one of my favorite cities in Europe. Here’s why.
(Photo series part one: Semana Santa 2013)
The first time I came to Lisbon, I was enchanted. Its fading colors, cracking paint, and continuous tiles had me clicking my camera until I left. It was my European city, a bit abandoned perhaps, but loved by me.
Now that I live in Spain’s capital city rather than a small city in Andalucía, my perspective on Lisbon has changed slightly. I still love the city, especially its winding (and sometimes impossible) hills, but I felt this constant nagging bias. As far as European capitals go, Madrid may be my favorite. Biased preference? Most definitely.
Still, I love Lisbon. Photo series, part two, to come tomorrow.
Gorgeous photos. I love all the colors. Lisbon is definitely on my list of places to go.
It’s a must! From Madrid, you can find such cheap flights, too!
I live in Lisbon and I am still enchanted by its colours and its life everyday. I’ve visited a lot of european cities and still can’t find such a beautiful place. I am very curious, though, about Istanbul, that i haven’t visited yet..
Loved your pictures
I’m yet to visit Lisbon, but it looks fantastic! I think my favourite European cities are Barcelona and Rome. Madrid is a great city, the atmosphere was brilliant when I visited. I bet it is an exciting place to live!
Lisbon is a photographer’s dream. The textures, tiles and hills make it one of my favorites!
I always say, Madrid is great to live in, Barcelona is great to visit!
I love your blog! Keep travelling 🙂 I reeally wanna go to Portugal now.
I’d like to return to Portugal right now, too! 🙂
