10th PC Anniversary Meeting in Lisbon

4 months after the 10th anniversary of Postcrossing and the meeting in Lisbon, I'm finally posting the cards Ninocas, Vitória and Zé sent me from there. All the cards were also signed by Duarte, Luís and Paula.

Castle of São Jorge or Saint George Castle can be a magical place to explore. Set on a hilltop high above Lisbon, it was once used as a fortress by the Moors until it fell in 1147. Today a popular tourist destination, this monument to the past was restored to preserve its history, and still allow it to be a very user friendly place to visit. - in:

The 25th of April Bridge is the oldest bridge across the Tagus river in Lisbon. The more than two km long suspension bridge opened in 1966 after almost four years of construction.
