Amazing place, it was interesting to watch the people in cinema and those on the street from lovely balcony. In addition we have enjoyed really tasty pizza ( one of the best!) with glass of wine. Very atmosphere place.

In spite of terrible weather I climbed the hill to see the Lisbon. It is really the great tight mosaic with thick silver border of Tag river. I made a lot of pictures from all around the place. There are nice looking bars and restaurants...More
