This is Lisbon seen through one of the towers in the castle of São Jorge. The castle built on hill can be seen from almost everywhere in Lisbon. Visiting this castle as an adult was an amazing experience. It was mid afternoon when we arrived and in the main courtyard there was man playing fado (always played on the guitar) It was magical. The sound of his music followed us everywhere we went on the castle. We explored it for hours.
The castle has been a royal residence, and fortress among other things. Later in the evening we stopped the cathedral of Lisbon and the Alfama neighborhood. Here you can find more info about this beautiful place.

A nice shot, Cristina. I like the warm light on the stone wal and the large black area. I think that you should try to catch something through the window - a tower, a tall boilding or something else to catch the eye. Anyway, nice shot.

I do so like photos shot through doors and windows...see my newest post from Estonia. The lighting is perfect and it is a great view of Lisbon. Portugal is one of my favorite countries to visit, and this photo makes me want to return!

Aqui está uma das melhores vistas sobre Lisboa. A maneia como conseguis-te contra-balançar o escuro e a claridade está muito boa.

I love the way you used the light and shadow. It seems that not only the sun is coming in through the window but also the town is pouring in. great shot.
