Getting the feel of a city involves a mixture of observation and experience that only come when we allow ourselves to be drawn into its daily life and discover its smells, sounds, voices, lanes and hidden corners... In Lisboa, the River Tagus is never far away as we explore the history-laden streets of a city that constantly confronts us with its past, as the decorative cobble pavements lead us up from the Praça do Comércio through the 18th century Lower Town to St. George's Castle. From the Castle, we can enjoy unparalleled views of the south bank, Rossio, the Carmo Convent, the Bairro Alto, the Avenida da Liberdade and Parque Eduardo VII, Nossa Senhora do Monte and the Mount of Graça. It could be for all the world a picture postcard of Lisboa under a perpetually blue sky, reflecting the varied colours of the roofs, streets, old houses, window frames and green spaces, offset by the glittering stream of the Tagus!
