Landscape Photography Lisbon Coast

[dt_gap height=”10″ /]Landscape Photography Lisbon Coast

A few hours south we arrive at Lisbon, spread along a hillside overlooking the Rio Tejo and it’s iconic red bridge.  Home for the next few days is between the town of Cascais and the Western beach of Praia Do Guincho.  We caught a local train into Lisbon and had a great day exploring the city, starting at a stunning riverside square the Praca Do Comercio, a great place to grab a coffee and people watch.  We climbed the narrow backstreet alleyways up to the Sao Jorge Castle with it’s magnificent views of the city and river.  Time to jump on a local tram and see if we can get lost, luckily it went vaguely in the right direction??  As we had visited the most Westerly point of mainland Spain we thought we had better go and see the most Westerley point of mainland Portugal and Europe, Cabo Da Roca.  A few miles North along the windy mountain road is the beautiful cliff top village of Azenhaus Do Mar, a great spot for a sundowner while waiting for the sun to set over the wild Atlantic breakers.  We also had a great day exploring the beautiful hillside down of Sintra with it’s historic gardens, mansions and fairytale hilltop Palace, a home to many of Portugal’s monarchs.  We also visited the beautiful clifftop village of Azenhas Do Mar where the wild Atlantic surf batters the coast, lying about 40 minutes drive North West of Lisbon.
