Rafael Bordallo Pinheiro Garden at the City Museum (Pimenta Palace), Lisbon
 
Rafael Bordallo Pinheiro (1846-1905) was a Portuguese artist known for his illustration, caricatures, sculpture and ceramics designs, and is considered the first Portuguese comics creator.
Several ceramic monkeys are hanging on the tree, hence the (ceramic) wolf below.

Gibalta Lighthouse



Lisbon-Oeiras-Cascais railroad at Cruz Quebrada
 
A tragedy took place here in 1952: during a big storm the original building collapsed smashing the back carriage of a passing train.
 
By the way, we haven't had a proper sunshine day in 23 days, but here it is. Finally!

Decay (LXXVI) And Dirt


Bairro Alto, Lisbon
  
I love the Bairro Alto district which will actually be celebrating its 500th anniversary this year. However, I wonder how much nicer it would be if a disgusting scene like this would simply not exist there.

Águas Livres Aqueduct


Alcântara Valley, Lisbon
 
Construction started in 1731 and, although the project was still unfinished, the aqueduct finally brought water to the city in 1748. The main course of the aqueduct covers 18 km, but the whole network of canals extends through nearly 58 km. A total of 35 arches cross the valley, covering 941 m (the tallest arches reach a height of 65 m.).
The aqueduct survived the 1755 Great Earthquake with no damage and it worked until 1967.
