Over the weekend I watch an old movie called "The Russia House". The movie starts and ends in Lisbon and this scene reminds me very much of some scenes from that movie.

Strange place to have a tree, I wonder if the staircase was built around an existing tree?

So pretty. I like all the wrought iron railings on the buildings.

That is a very steep hill, JM!

So nice that they left the tree with constructing the stairs.

There is a lot of exercise to be gotten walking up and down those stairs and that street.

The entrance to the house looks enticing. I always wonder what's beyond.

I do love houses that have grown together like a forest with little paths between.
