Lisbon Cathedral

The Cathedral of Lisbon has been a major part of the city since the 12th century.  It has undergone many changes over the centuries and was seriously damaged in the Lisbon earthquake of 1755.  After the earthquake and accompanying fires, the Cathedral underwent a major reconstruction.  What you see today was the result of this reconstruction.

I took this photo from atop the Santa Justa Lift.  I love the colors of the buildings around the Cathedral and the way the Cathedral stands watch over the city.

I loved our time in Lisbon and, if we’re ever able to move to Portugal, I look forward to spending many days exploring this great city.

My wife says I make stuff up. While that's probably true I'm going to stick to stuff that's mostly true.
