    5. 5. "Made Portugal" products. in food

    8. 8. Estação do Rossio Statue of D.Sebastião
    9. 9. Casa do Ferreira das tabuletas - Rua da Trindade
    10. 10. Built in 1864 for Manuel Moreira Garcia, owner of the Trinity Brewery. The exterior decor, tiled with Masonic motifs, was in charge of Luís Ferreira, director da Fábrica de Cerâmica da Viúva Lamego, known as "Ferreira das Tabuletas". There are six alegorical figures - Earth, Water, Commerce, Industry, Science and Agriculture
    11. 11. Statue of poet Fernando Pessoa in front of Cafe Brasileira This is the city's most famous cafe, opened in 1905 with a magnificent art nouveau decor and known for the intellectuals who stopped by on a daily basis in the early 20th century. One of them was poet Fernando Pessoa, whose bronze statue (perhaps the most photographed in the country) stands amid the clientele of both young and old.
    12. 12. Fernando Pessoa (born Fernando António Nogueira de Seabra Pessoa; 1888 – 1935), was a Portuguese poet, writer, literary critic, translator, publisher and philosopher, described as one of the most significant literary figures of the 20th century and one of the greatest poets in the Portuguese language. He also wrote in and translated from English and French
    13. 13. Baixa
    14. 14. Rossio Figueira The Pombaline Baixa is an elegant district, primarily constructed after the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. It takes its name from Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, 1st Marquess of Pombal, the Prime Minister to Joseph I of Portugal from 1750 to 1777 and key figure of the Enlightenment in Portugal, who took the lead in ordering the rebuilding of Lisbon after the 1755 earthquake. The Marquis of Pombal imposed strict conditions on rebuilding the city, and the current grid pattern strongly differs from the organic streetplan that characterised the district before the Earthquake.
    15. 15. The Santa Justa Lift (Elevador de Santa Justa) is an elevator/lift situated at the end of Rua de Santa Justa. It connects the lower streets of the Baixa with the higher Largo do Carmo (Carmo Square.)
    16. 16. Since its construction, the Lift has become a tourist attraction for Lisbon as, among the urban lifts in the city, Santa Justa is the only remaining vertical one.
    17. 17. The hills of Lisbon have always presented a problem for accessibility, especially in a time when people were required to move on foot or being pulled by horse (or other animal).
    18. 18. The Lift is decorated in a Neo-Gothic style in iron. Since this was a new material at the time of its construction, it is symbolic of the technical and memorial construction from this period, representing the culture of the 1900s, when the structure and elevators were considered a magical innovation and portent of a modern age
    19. 19. The Santa Justa Lift was designed by Raoul Mesnier du Ponsard, an engineer born in Porto to French parents. In July 2002, the Santa Justa Elevator celebrated its first centenary; along with the three remaining cable railways of Lavra, Glória and Bica, they were all classified as National Monuments on same year.
    20. 20. Camões square is where Bairro Alto begins (or ends!). At night, especially Friday and Saturday, is also where teenagers start their night.

    23. 23. Painting on the ceiling of the City Council building
    24. 24. After the 1755 earthquake, during the Pombal reconstruction, the City Hall was built in its present location, and was completely destroyed by a fire in November 19th 1863. A new building was then built in the same place, between 1865 and 1880, based on an architectural project by the city architect of the time Domingues Parente da Silva and the large classical fronton by French sculptor Anatole Calmels.
    25. 25. Lisboa El Corte Inglés. The store has a more upmarket image in Portugal than in Spain
    26. 26. Lisbon's bullring was built between 1890 and 1892 under the project of Portuguese architect António José Dias da Silva. His design was inspired by the bullring of Madrid, by Emilio Rodriguez Ayuso, later demolished.
    27. 27. Built in 1959 in thanks to God for having spared Portugal during WWII, this enormous monument to Christ was inspired by the famous statue in Rio de Janeiro. The 28m (90ft) figure of Christ opens its arms to Lisbon, and there is a sweeping view of the city and 25 de Abril Bridge from the top of the 82m (270ft) high pedestal (reached by an elevator).
    28. 28. A Modern Building in Park of Nations, (Parque das Nações)
    29. 29. Catherine of Braganza was Queen of England, Scotland and Ireland from 1662 to 1685, as the wife of King Charles II.

A map made of tiles marks all the distinctive buildings, and the lower geometric garden contains busts of heroes and gods from Greco-Roman mythology, such as Minerva and Ulysses. Next to the garden is the Gloria Elevator, a funicular that has been taking passengers up and down the hill between the center of the city (Restauradores Square) and Bairro Alto since 1885
