Some more #TouristStuff in Lisbon with the Minox 35GT and Lomochrome Turquoise, 16 January 2024


Just before Christmas we had a few days away in Lisbon. Of course I took a couple of cameras with me, a Canon Powershot A720 and a crappy little supermarket brand digicam. I also took my tiny Minox 35GT loaded with Lomochrome Turquoise, and here are those images.


On the first day we visited the exhibition by Joana Vasconcelos at Maat, the Museu de Arte, Arquitetura e Tecnologia. Outside Maat there was 'Solitaire', a giant engagement ring made of car wheels and topped with a 'diamond' made up of whisky tumblers.

The second day we went to Sintra and the Atlantic coast, stopping at the Praia das Maçãs, Cabo da Roco, the westernmost part of Europe, and the Boca do Inferno, which literally translates as the Hellmouth. We also stopped at Praia Azenhas do Mar, a village built on the top of a sheer cliff which at the bottom features one of the largest salt water pools in Europe. Praia Azenhas do Mar is renowned for its resemblance to typical Mediterranean villages of white buildings built into the hills, and with a view from across the bay it's easy to see why.


The last day was spent in Lisbon, both in the Old Town, which was full of hills and old buildings, and the centre, with its modern buildings and parks. We stopped for lunch in the old town then went to the shopping district of Chiado. We also stopped at the large square in the centre of Lisbon, the Praça do Comércio, which at this time of year was decorated with a huge Christmas tree.
