Lisbon – why this city necessarily need to visit! Why I absolutely wanted to Lisbon? I got this idea after the seminar have to modern Italian literature. I found a book especially beautiful, it was by Antonio Tabucchi and was called \”Sostiene Perreira\” (explained on German Perreira\”). Then I thought: how is it possible, that an Italian after Portugal goes there and lives in Italian wrote the novels about Portugal? I had to to be sure.We were there at the beginning of June and the temperature was already high, but a breeze blew out into the Atlantic, Costa de Lisbon, and it was not so humid… After breakfast on the terrace, we were ready for the discovery of the city. Of course I have informed me before good – I always need to know where I’m going.
Lisbon is the capital city of Portugal, after the Christians back have conquered it from the Moors in the year 1147 and then Lisbon experienced its first heyday. This is their a legendary city with over 20 centuries of fascinating history, Architecture is reflected. The Alfama is one of the oldest quarters in Lisbon. Because it has largely survived the earthquake of 1755, there are many historic buildings with their original beauty in this area. The old quarters are adjacent to the Alfama Castelo and Mouraria, where on a hill of St. George of Castle (Sao Jorge da Mina) is located.
The streets of West and North lead to him, and every year in June the streets of all three quarters with living people be filled in, come to the feast of Saint St. George. The Graca quarter and the churches of Sao Vicente de Fora and Santa Engracia are also very near! So if someone looking to history, sights, churches, monuments, museums, which will feel right here! Get easy tram no.
