we had a nice cuppa (there was no nespresso capsules so we made filter coffee from some leftover pretty good coffee powder) & rest at the apartment before going out for an evening stroll.
it was a short walk past the st rogue church to the square,Jardim de São Pedro de Alcântara, where some street stalls are peddling handicrafts, ginjinha (cherry wine) & small eats. 🙂
nice view of the surrounding.
Olá a partir de Lisboa! ^^
greetings from lisbon!
there is always romanticism associated with these streetcar transport of yesteryears.
the gloria furnicular, opened to public in 1885, traverse an axis that slopes 17.7%, from Avenida da Liberdade to the Rua de São Pedro de Alcântara.
there were no lack of loud wall graffiti along parts of the sloping calcada da gloria.
the furnicular ends at Avenida da Liberdade leading to praca restauradores. 🙂
we walked over to the national theatre.
there was this famous ginjinha sem rival …
everyone was queueing up.
my son bought 2 cups. it was pretty strong & sweet wine with cherries at the bottom.
later we learned that in many places you are served with a chocolate container & finished off with the chocolate. didn’t have that this time though. 🙂
we were 1/2 window shopping & looking for dinner place by now, walking up rue do carmo.
the santa justa elevator was round the corner, cost €5 for 2 trips.
there was a long queue.
i looked at the google map which showed the restaurants nearby.
with a spot of luck, we picked sacramento, and that was the best restaurant & best meal we had in lisbon.
we liked it so much we went back again the evening before leaving lisbon for porto. ^^
