Photographer's Note

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.
