Jerónimos Monastery

Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, and the oldest in Western Europe, predating other modern European capitals such as London, Paris and Rome by centuries. (wikipedia) You never expect the inside of Jerónimos Monastery to be like that. So warm and gold, (if the timing is right) you get to be surrounded by the total serenity and sacredness. リスボンは世界的にも古い歴史がある都市の一つで、西ヨーロッパでは最古の都市であり現代のヨーロッパの他の首都であるロンドンやパリ、ローマなどよりも数百年遡る。(wikipedia) …

LOL.  It’s something we all learn in Japanese History early on.  Being in Lisbon, Portugal for the first time, my impression of it was somewhat relatable Europe. Maybe it’s just me, being a …

As they limit the number of people going up to 35th floor, you need to plan ahead and make reservation in advance but most importantly it is…free! I was very impressed by their well designed public garden and the …
