I arrived in Lisbon on a layover while I was returning home after traveling for four months. It just happened to be Noche Buena and all the shops were closed and streets were empty. I still wanted to take a few photos while walking the streets in the early morning hours. Each corner, each street, each highlight of the city is filled with history. If you want to truly feel the soul of Lisbon, you need to get lost, walk aimlessly through the streets and stumble upon its hidden gems.
Lisbon is the largest city in Portugal with a population of about half a million and is also the oldest city in Western Europe. It would have been great to spend a few more days here when things were open but it was great to get a brief taste of the city.
