Lisbon

We had a pleasant over night trip down the coast to Lisbon arriving early the next morning.

Passing the Tower of Belem and the Monument to the Explorers on the way.

The Tower was built in the early 1500’s to defend Lisbon.

The monument below celebrates the Portugese explorers who opened up the coast of Africa, the passage to India and Brazil.
