11th Postcrossing Anniversary Meeting - Portugal

When you work on weekends there's a lot of things you are not able to do, one of them is not going to Postcrossing meetings. I missed another anniversary! I wasn't there but Ninocas and Zé didn't forget me and sent me these nice cards. I got a 3rd card yesterday, sent by Luís, but I already had it.

The Discoveries Monuments was erected on the right bank of Tejo river, in honour of the adventurers involved in the Portuguese discoveries of the 15th and 16th centuries. Aboard the stylised caravel are the 32 Portuguese heroes led by the Infante D. Henrique who was the driving force behind the epic undertaking.

Lisbon's most photographed street is probably Rua da Bica de Duarte Belo. It's in the historic and picturesque neighborhood of Bica, one of the city's most traditional neighborhoods, known for its small bars and especially for the iconic funicular that runs through it. Constantly photographed by tourists, the funicular has been going up and down the hill since 1892. - in:
