We’ve just got back from four days in Lisbon. It’s a truly beautiful city and makes a great choice for a family break once your children are old enough to walk up lots of steep steps and clamber around old towers and turrets. I’ll be posting my guide to the best things for families to see and do over the next couple of weeks but in the meantime I thought I’d share some of the photos of our adventures.
We all fell in love with Lisbon from the red-tiled roofs
to the colourful walls of virtually every building we passed.
Getting around was definitely part of the fun.
We wandered around the wonderful food markets at the Campo de Ourique and the Mercado da Ribeira
and found music in the squares.
We explored the Castelo de São Jorge
and the Torre de Belém.
We were all blown away by the magnificence of the cloisters at the Jerónimos Monastery.
And I found it very hard to resist all the beautifully-packaged goodies in the shops…
