Follow that Yellow Tram. Now an essential part of Lisbon's life, the iconic trams are, actually, of American origin. They're travelling through streets and corners of Lisbon since 1914. #history #transport #culture #lisbontrams #lisbon #lisbontailoredtours #lisbonwithpats

Concordia Fratrum or Brotherly Union. This intriguing and fascinating ceiling fresco depicts the union between three important  brothers in Portugal's history. The Carvalho e Melo brothers, being the one in the middle the most prominent: Sebastião José, also known as Marquis of Pombal. The three represent the union of 3 powers: church, politics and military.

Saint on the Plate. This glazed clay plate alludes to Lisbon's most  popular saint - Saint Anthony (Santo António). "Who says St. Anthony is from Padua is not a good Portuguese; let it be clear once and for all that the saint is from Lisbon!" Sounds harsh but, after all, it refers to Lisbon's most loved saint. The city celebrates his day on the 13th of June and it's a massive celebration!

The Blue & White Façade. ♡ The Portuguese glazed tiles (azulejos) have two main characteristics that identifies and differentiates them from the rest of the world. They always have a dialogue with the space where they're installed - architecture; and they're always in dialogue with other arts (painting, engraving, ceramics). Lisbon is rich with tile façades and with me you won't miss the best ones!  #glazedtiles #azulejos #tilefacade #tilefacadedetail #architecture #18thcentury #lisbon…
