Feast for the eyes

Walking through Lisbon is a delicious feast for the eyes.

Wherever you look, there are tiles and mosaics

Golden tiles

And beautifully decorated shop fronts

Like this one – it’s the oldest cod cake shop in Lisbon.

Cod shop

And the colour — so warm and delicious

Like this lemon sorbet building;

Lemon

Or deliciously purple

And happy.

Purple splash

Even the faded old grand buildings near the harbour

Glitter with the gold of the setting sun

And transform into beauty.

    There is much beauty in Lisbon however we couldn’t help but note the rampant graffitti that destroyed so many beautiful scenes – one shot I took was of the side of a tram completely covered with grafitti. You’ve found the beauty and showed it wonderfully in this post.
