Belém, a must visit during a stay in Lisbon

We realized some time ago that we didn’t have many photos of our beautiful city of Lisbon, a huge flaw that demanded immediate action… So we started a family program: to enjoy spring good weather and spend some afternoons in “photo tours” , to show you the places you can’t miss on your next visit here.

We took a vote (this is a very democratic family), and we decided that the first of these tours would be in Belém, a really lovely place, with a very special light and brightness complemented with the deep blue color of the Tagus River, equally visited by tourist and locals, who love to spend time here.

Take a look at the beautiful island of Sao Miguel (Azores), you’ll want to visit it!

This is a destination we love, one of the most beautiful places we’ve been: Azores. The nine islands of this archipelago are extraordinarily beautiful and diverse, so we will speak of them one at a time, starting by the main island, São Miguel.Lagoa Sete Cidades
Start your journey by a visit to the capital Ponta Delgada, a very nice city, where white and grey from basalt are the predominant colours. This is a very calm city, with great and welcoming people, so you’ll enjoy walking around the historic center, buy souvenirs (you’ll find beautiful handicraft), and delight yourself in the numerous restaurants: the food is delicious – fresh fish, sea food, meat, cheese, vegetables.. Whatever your preferences, we can assure you’ll enjoy great meals.

Start exploring the island by seeing the lagoons: Lagoa do Fogo, Lagoa das Sete Cidades… Stop at Caldeira Velha, a magical place not to be missed (a waterfall with hot water). The views along the way are incredibly beautiful, with extinct craters covered by green contrasting with the blue ocean.
