Flyday Fridays: Lisbon Story

It was in 2010 when I  first visited Lisbon for the first time. It was unforgettable, I fell in love!

Lisboa(Aug 12-15,2010) 144

We went there by train, here´s my train outfit :

Lisboa(Aug 12-15,2010) 072
cardigan- Promod, top and leggings- Zara(old)
Our first day was spent visiting the Hieronymites Monastery( Mosteiro dos Jerónimos), a must when you visit Lisbon:

Lisboa(Aug 12-15,2010) 083
Lisboa(Aug 12-15,2010) 095 - copia

and a few blocks from the monastery, the tower of Belém (Torre de Belém), UNESCO World Heritage Site:

Lisboa(Aug 12-15,2010) 122

and for museum and modern art lovers, the Berardo Museum of Modern and Contemporary Arts:

Lisboa(Aug 12-15,2010) 117

I had to see for myself how they do bullfighting in Portugal. While in Spain the torero(bullfighter) wears a short beaded jacket, here in Portugal they wear a long jacket a la 18th century fashion.

Lisboa(Aug 12-15,2010) 154

Moreover, they don´t kill(whew!) the suffering bull as a ¨coup de grace¨  like they do in Spain(bullfighting is banned in Catalonia) but only play with it´s horns. As for leading the bull out, they use cows with bells which is cute. :)

Lisboa(Aug 12-15,2010) 158
Lisboa(Aug 12-15,2010) 160

Of course, we had to try Lisbon´s famous tram and use it almost everyday while we were there. Nevermind that the streets are so tiny, sometimes steep and sometimes we have to stop because a car/small truck is blocking the way because we´re enjoying very bumpy ride along the way. :)

Lisboa(Aug 12-15,2010) 078

The tram´s also a place for fashion watching. Love what this girl´s done with her pretty floral scarf! ;)

Lisboa(Aug 12-15,2010) 317

I had a great time in Lisbon, here´s what I did the moment I arrived at the Placa do Comércio:

Lisboa(Aug 12-15,2010) 037
top- Mango, shorts- H&M
and I did it again when I went back in autumn of last year. ;)

P1180124 - copia
skirt- New Yorker, jacket- Zara, bag-Longchmap
Lisbon´s metro and metro stations are one of the cleanest and colorful in all of the cities that I´ve visited in this part of Europe. The main train station is also very modern, it has a skywalk/bridge which connects it to a mall.

P1180158

Plazas such as this are common in the city and

P1180172

the floor´s a great background for my shoes and skirt too. :)

P1180173
skirt- New Yorker, flats- Blanco
I recommend tha you visit Lisbon! The city´s one of the vibrant city that I´ve ever visited. :)

Enjoy the weekend, dahlings! :)
