castle of são jorge
My little trip to Europe was (more then) a few months ago. I started recapping the trip and showed some photos of my hometown Cascais, the Windmill of Dom Quixote and Cabo da Roca, the most western part of all of Europe. And then things got busy and that was it. I don’t know about you but I love looking back on vacation photos, regardless of whether it was 6 weeks or 6 months ago. So bare with me as I pop in here every so often with a few slightly-outdated photos of 2013.
On one of our last days in Lisbon we wandered up to the moorish Castle of São Jorge. In order to be as touristy as possible we hopped on the streetcar, which takes you up the majority of the way to the hilltop castle. Once you enter the garden of the castle your breath is taken away by an amazing view overlooking the historic centre of the Lisbon and the Tagus River. We had a fun time playing “Where’s Wally” by spotting all the little streets below we had wandered the previous day.
Now imagine waking up to that view every day!
