Santa Justa Lift, which happened to be designed by the same man who designed the Eiffel Tower in Paris. At the top of the lift you can see beautiful views of the lower/newer areas of the city of Lisbon. The Tagus River used to cover most of where Lisbon's main squares are located today, but after the earthquake the Portuguese were forced to rebuild the city and decided to extend it's land by putting wooden stilts into the ground and building new squares over top. It's crazy to think that more than a quarter of the city is built on top of wooden stilts!
We made a quick stop at the oldest coffee shop in Lisbon--A Brasileira--over 125 years old and still contains all of the original architecture, signs, etc.
Belem, is a small town right outside of Lisbon, is most known for the Tower of Belem monument and it's delicious Pastry de Belem. We were lucky enough to grab a seat at the Paseis de Belem which makes more than 23,000 of it's famous Pastry de Belem pastries each DAY!
After a delightful mid-morning snack we roamed around Belem to see the Tower de Belem and other monuments.
