On the River Tagus
04/24/2010 - 04/24/2010
The Christ the Redeemer statue stands on the river bank opposite the old city.
Waterfront homes and buildings – many of which are covered in decorative tile.
Lisbon was once the center of a great maritime empire and there are many major monuments and bronze statues commemorating their rich history and culture.
Even weeds growing on roof tops are beautiful.
The Castle of St. George crowns a hilltop overlooking the harbor.
Beautiful tiles are everywhere – homes, sidewalks, and subway walls!
Mid day pause and simple pleasures.
