Monday's Postcard: Lisbon

Yet another favorite layover....really are there any that aren't my favorites??? Lisbon is a fun city with lots of history and great weather!! USAirways only goes to Lisbon in the summer, so I have to take advantage of these layovers while we have them.  This is the Belem Tower, a symbol of Portugal's great age of exploration. It was built in the 1500's as a fortress at the entrance to Lisbon on the Targus River and it is a Unesco World Heritage Site.

I spent Christmas 1968 in Lisbon while traveling when I was at the University of Valencia! It was a beautiful city! Belem was one of the slides that I showed each year I taught, of that wonderful trip! Brings back many fond memories!
