Golden Hour in Lisbon

by Benny Law April. 14, 2021 312 views

This is a continuation of my Lisbon series. The photos in this post were taken in late afternoon as it was getting close to sunset. It was the beginning of my walk around the city to explore and take pictures after a day of business meetings. It was such an enjoyable evening with so much to see and take in.

This is Praça do Comércio, a waterside public plaza with a notable arch and statue, lined with outdoor cafes and shopping venues. Castelo de São Jorge, the iconic old castle, is at the top of the hill in the background.

I love the elevated garden with the trees at this location. The building on the left is a nice little hotel named Solar Dos Mouros. If you Google it, you will actually see that it is a very cozy little hotel with a clean modern interior. The rates are surprisingly affordable by European standards.

I have posted a monochrome version of this photo before. This is the colour version. What a lovely cobbled street with lots of shade from the trees in the summer.

Another great series Benny. Love the peacefulness the images bring. #2 the light on the wall and the perspective, are just beautiful. I had to of course listen to the link Antonio posted as well. Beautiful!  The itch to travel to Lisbon is getting stronger and stronger. Thanks for sharing these beauties.

You just need to add a FADO song and it would be perfect

I had to Google the meaning of FADO song. Didn't hear anything about that when I was there.

If you have heard one of those songs you would love Lisbon even more 😊

Thanks for sharing that, Antonio. Now I got a taste. Didn't understand the lyrics but the string instruments were lovely.
