Photo Spot Details

Lisbon is one of the most beautiful European capitals with particularly hospitable inhabitants. I recommend taking a Portugese tram to get to the Old Town and have a romantic walk among fado singers, flamenco dancers. You might also want to sit in a barge-bar to listen to local jazzmen, have delicious seafood and Portuguese wine.

For me, Lisbon trip is a typical travel and street photography trips, so I’d take fast, fixed focal lenses, e.g. 18, 24, 35mm (35mm equivalent lenses).

    I live in Lisbon centre. Although it’s not downtown, I go there a lot. But I never saw a Flamengo dancer in the street… :-)

    Ditto. Very unfortunate example.

    That flamenco dancer is not a regular sighting in Lisbon (or Portugal for that matter) for sure. That’s a Spanish thing, not Portuguese. :)
