Excuse me the previous 3 days of sun bloging but I couldn't resist. I took these pictures at Parede, a litle village near Lisbon where I often go to visit friends. It was my first free weekend since September.
Some photos of the the zoo beautiful subway station.
The Zoo station is one of the eleven stations belonging to the network's original Metro in Lisbon, opened the December 29, 1959. This station is located in Plaza General Humberto Delgado, commonly known as Sete Rios. The station allows access to the Lisbon Zoo and the bus that is located in that square. The original architectural project (1959) was the work of architect and Falcon Cunha and the speeches of plastic painter Mary Keil. In 1995 the station was completely remodelled on the basis of an architectural project created by the architect Benoliel de Carvalho and intervention plastic the painter Julio Resende. The refurbishment of the station meant the extension of the pier boarding and construction of a new lobby with connection to the station of CP Sete Rios.
I took this pic while waiting for food in the restaurant. You can se Martin Moniz, where I think there is the master concentration of arabs and indians of Lisbon. There are lots of chinese too, but those are spread for all city. Downthere u have a oriental mall where u can find a great variety of indian food (Hummmm), and exotic goods :)
If u look up the hill u can see a litle bit of Castelo de S. Jorge.
The Palácio Foz was built in the XVIII century by the Italian architect Francesco Fabri to the Marquis de Castelo-Melhor and eventually receive the name of the Marquis of Foz who lived in the palace in the XIX century.
Hello, this blog is a kind of compromise of mine to put a picture a day about my city. In a way it is the local daily through which I passed, so it is natural that many pictures are taken in the same areas. But at the same time forcing me to look at the city in a different way and look for places where we never spent or recall by its beauty. I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
For first photo chose the Down Town, called Rossio, a place that whenever I have time I like to go there.
