  • If you're on foot, wonderful. You'll be able to see a former libres in Lisbon. The connection with the beautiful Avenida da Liberdade, the old buildings, the metro station that takes us to every corner of the city, the feeling of being in a typical European roundabout, everything is good. But if you're driving, you'll need a GPS help and not just. Very confusing!!

  • The dividing line of the historic city and the contemporary Lisbon for me is the Marquês de Pombal Square. The monument that presides the square is striking and honors one of the most important historical figures in Portugal as well as the reconstructor of Lisbon. It served me as a reference to move around Lisbon.
