One More Dead Palm Tree




Thousands of Palm Trees are dying thanks to an Asian Beetle whose larvae feed on the trunks where they excavate holes up to one meter long. It's a heartbreaking scenery.

Belém Tower


The fortified Belém Tower dates back to the early 16th century and it was part of a defensive system for the mouth of the Tagus River. In 1983 this former cerimonial gateway to Lisbon was classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site because of the significant role it played in the Portuguese maritime discoveries.

Sé Catedral


The construction of the Lisbon Cathedral started in 1150.

Given its age and the multiple restoration works carried out in time, the cathedral is a composite expression of several architectural styles: Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque, and Neoclassical, combined in a robust structure haloed by an all-engrossing medieval vibe. (lisbon-tourism.com)
