In December, I took a side trip to Lisbon for three days over the Christmas holiday. It's a short, easy flight from London, and the weather is still pretty nice. It's impossible to explore the city properly in three days, of course, and if I had more time there, I would have loved to get out to other neighborhoods like Sintra, as well as spend more time in Lisbon itself.
I stayed in Alfama which is on the eastern edge of the city, and that gave me ample opportunities to explore some great streets and sites. Highlights included Castelo de S. Jorge, Se de Lisboa, Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, Belem Tower, Praça do Comércio and Carmo convent.
Here's a selection of photos from my trip to the Portuguese capital.
