Outside Lisbon, a Verdant World of Castles and Palaces

Outside Lisbon, a Verdant World of Castles and Palaces | Lisbon, Portugal | Scoop.it
Sintra, about 20 miles west of the capital, is one of Portugal’s crown jewels.
Sandra Sick's insight:

By the time I stepped out of the train, all traces of Lisbon had disappeared. What greeted me were hallmarks of quaintness: a smattering of restaurants and mom-and-pop shops, pleasantly sleepy streets and a street clock as old-fashioned as they come.

Sandra Sick's insight:

'To really get into the rhythm of the Lisbon streets, then first-timers here must take a trip on one of the tram and funicular rides whose rickety yellow carriages rattle and roll as they too dance through the streets, paying homage to a grander age of wood-panelled finesse and 19th century style and engineering.'

Sandra Sick's insight:

'Stepping foot in Lisboa was like falling into all the images of home tucked safely away in my memory bank. Even our hours spent sipping on Mojitos and Caipirinhas in the meandering stone streets of Lisbon's trendy Barrio Alto neighborhood reminded me of more than one nightly romp among the Marina bars oft frequented by yuppie San Franciscans.'

Lisbon's tang is in terrific tapas, on cobblestone streets and in soulful folk music

What's it like to live in a far-off place most of us see only on a vacation? Foreign Correspondence is an interview with someone who lives in a spot you may want to visit.
Sandra Sick's insight:

Lisbon has become quite cool. It didn't necessarily have that image in the past, but the nightlife scene has exploded recently, particularly around the Cais de Sodre area near the waterfront.

Fall in Love With Lisbon: Portugal’s Lovely Capital City

Fall in Love With Lisbon: Portugal’s Lovely Capital City | Lisbon, Portugal | Scoop.it
The celebrated 16th-century Portuguese poet, Luís Vaz de Camões, dubbed Portugal the place “where land ends and sea begins.” From its birth, the sea has been mother’s milk for Lisbon.
Sandra Sick's insight:

In the 13th century, Phoenician merchants founded a trading settlement in the well-protected natural harbor on the Tagus River, which flows swiftly into the nearby Atlantic Ocean. Historic waves of conquering Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths, Muslims and Christian crusaders put their own successive imprints upon Lisbon and its inhabitants.

Romantic shabbiness and street cafes in Portuguese city’s old neighborhoods.
Sandra Sick's insight:

Portugal’s capital city of Lisbon feels to me like Europe’s San Francisco — it has rattling trolleys, a famous suspension bridge, a heritage dominated by a horrific earthquake, and lots of fog. And like San Francisco, it’s a charming mix of now and then.
