Empire Square


Belém, Lisbon
All colonies got their independence from Portugal in 1975 but the name of the square remains the same.

Oh thank you for letting me know what the name of this park is. We spent some time here, soaking in the November sun and eating roasted chesnut while people watching. Such a beautiful part of Lisbon.

Another delightful photo showing Lisbon in all its glory. The empire may be gone but memories remain.
