Watching the sun set and cast a rem light along the Torre de BelΓ©m was definitely one for the books.

When I arrived to BelΓ©m and saw the PradΓ£o dos Descobrimentos I was left in such awe. This monument while being massively tall also managed to have such fine carved details of the men who helped establish Portugal. It was amazing!

Look at Jeronimos Monastery what an architectural beauty.

The Elevador de Santa Justa is a beautifully crafted elevator made out of ironwork, glorious neo-gothic arches, and provides great views of the center of Lisbon. It is a total “must-see” tourist landmark.

This photo was taken inside the cathedral of Portugal. The sense of spirituality felt inside such a historic building leaves you in awe.

Beautiful photo that captures Lisbon’s Terreiro do PaΓ§o. I love the contrast of the blue sky against the yellow outside walls of the building.
