The most important thing is stop look around, take in your surroundings, what's right in front of you maybe priceless. Unmediated reality is where it's at.

Miradouro da Rocha Conde de Óbidos

From Pessoa's Lisbon:

Right in front of the wharf he has just left is the Rocha do Conde de Óbido, an eminence crowned with a well kept garden which is reached by two large stone stairways; from the garden itself, at the top, there is a fine view over the river.

Roof Tops of Lisbon

Look closely, expand to full size. This photo could easliy be a composite or a collage, the roof tops appear sho chaotic and seem to merge and overlap. This a true phot however and it highlights one of lisbon's attributes organic street pattern and the chance for something completely different around any corner.

Look to the top right , see how far up the hill the Estrella Basilica is.
