Forever my favourite city in the world and yes, I’ll never not be unashamedly biased about it. It is my city, after all. Like Rome, Lisbon’s most common nickname is the City of Seven Hills and anyone who’s visited will surely remember them. On top of providing an excellent leg workout, they also give access to some of the best views of the city.
I have a few favourite viewpoints but the view from the castle’s walls is the one that always takes my breath away. It’s beyond gorgeous. From up there you can see the river, the Cristo Rei statue, the bridge, and a never ending sea of orange roofs covering most of the downtown. It’s like being in a postcard, and that’s probably why I like it so much.
