Lisbon - Portugal

A few weeks ago, Joana, a portuguese postcrosser living in France, was on holidays in Portugal and she wanted to meet a few portuguese postcrossers. They had a meeting in Lisbon. Ninocas sent me this card also signed by Joana, Paula, Ana Maria, Inês Brito, Luís, Zé, Rui and Caroline, a Swiss postcrosser also in holidays in Portugal and that I met a few days later in Porto.

Lisbon overlooking the castle of São Jorge. On the back of the postcard it says that the castle is the most emblematic monument of Lisbon, I actually don't agree, for me the most emblematic monument is the Belém Tower or even the Jerónimos Monastery. Anyway, as it says on the postcard, the castle has witnessed all the historical moments of the city - from the Iron Age, through the Phoenicians, Carthaginian, Roman and Muslim occupations.
