Tuk Tuk. A real institution
Elevador da Bica I
These small carriages were introduced in the beginning of the 20th century on some of the steepest streets of Lisbon. And when I say steep, that means steep...
Elevador da Bica II
Elevador da Bica III
Elevador da Bica IV
Elevador da Bica V
The controls of the elevators date back to the beginning of the 20th century.
Small and Big
Good Old Tram
Tram cars in Lisbon are awesome. They are small, outdated, rolling of very narrow lines in order to squeeze themselves on narrower streets.
Elevador da Lavra
History in Public Toilet
This very short and expressive history of Portugal was painted on a public toilet ceiling. Astonishing.
Up and Up
Alfama is the oldest neighborhood in Lisbon. Fascinating.
Elevador da Gloria
Interior of Gloria Elevator very early in the morning.
I couldn't resist to taking a shot of this guy! For over a minute he tried to find the best pose.
Sintra Castle, Sintra, Portugal
Build in the nineteenth century, with flamboyant architecture.
Calcada do Carmo, the street where I stayed, has an inclination of over 25%. Something usual in Lisbon.
Convento do Carmo
Carmo Convent. The ceiling has collapsed in 1755, due to the biggest earthquake in the history of Portugal. It was never rebuilt since.
Thoughts from a Toilet
Absolutely fascinating texts written on a door and walls of a public toilet.
Waiting for a Life

The interior of this building matches the exterior. A space ship.
Elevador da Santa Justa
Built in 1902 by one of Gustave Eiffel's students, the lift connects the lower streets of the Baixa Pombalina with the higher Largo do Carmo. It has 45 meters high.
The bridge from elevator to Largo do Carmo is seen here.
Ponte Vasco da Gama, Lisbon, Portugal
After struggling to reach the site on time for the sunset and low tide, I finally got this frame.
