This is a wonderful view ... though even with the sea it looks like a hot place.

That looks like a really big square. Is it used much for gatherings and concerts?

José Mendonça said...

@Stefan: Protests and demonstrations, concerts, video mapping, fashion shows... this square has seen it all.

Kate said...

Your aerial view photo definitely shows how large it is!

Beautiful! From where did you take the shot?

Birdman said...

That's a wide open expanse.

RedPat said...

That looks fabulous, JM! Here, someone would be wanting to build a condo right at the shoreline and block the view.

You could organize a few football matxhes in this enormous space. Is the heat keeping people away? We're having our hottest weather of the summer, 37-38.

Randy said...

Wow, that is quite large and beautiful.

It's beautiful. How many squares are there in Lisbon? Have you photographed them all?

Kasia said...

Such a beautiful view! This is the first time when I like a grey city area. :)

What a vast and interesting space with the monument center stage, the diagonal lines, the people with their shadows, and the ocean just beyond.
