Santa Justa Lift and Street Walk, Lisbon

Lisbon is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and have unique stle of Arabic Andlucia style, European Style and Portugal Style. When you are in Lisbon , you must go to Santa Justa Elevator. We were there but we did not go all the way to the top. 

The Center of Lisbon area - full of shops, restaurants, bars, selling everything from flowers to souveniers. 

The 'Santa Justa' lift was inaugurated on the 10th July 1902 and it is the only vertical lift in Lisbon for public service. It was built by the architect Raoul Mesnier du Ponsard and has a cast iron structure, enriched with filigree details. In 2002 it was classified as a National Monument.

Usually in the month of November and December you will smell the roasted chestnuts on the streets of downtown Lisbon. The streets are invaded by stands of chestnut roasters that emit a white smoke that gives the beautiful city a mysterious atmosphere. 

If you've never tasted roasted chestnuts is time to order a half-dozen (to start) your day. 

Don’t leave Lisbon, though, without taking a lengthy stroll around and finding out just what the city is about for yourself. Grab a jar of olives and some freshly baked bread, and drift around the back alleys, stopping for coffee or to explore a tiny local store. Lisbon, you see, is a city that’s about far more than its sights.
