For some unknown reason it's a date that is not overly celebrated in Portugal.
It's now been just over 4 years since I left Portugal and immigrated to Australia and although I do love living here I miss the charm of the old country a little bit, Australia's history is so recent compared with European history...
So I leave you with a few photos of Lisbon's old and historical buildings.
Happy Birthday Portugal.
