Another visit to Lisbon started with a visit to Alfama, Lisbon's oldest district.
The narrow cobbled streets and plenty of steps between streets, means you have to walk a lot.
The terrace adjoins a restaurant and it has a panoramic lift that takes people to a street down the hill.
It's not the best lookout as it's surrounded by a lot of buildings but you can clearly see the Santa Justa Lift just ahead and the Carmo Convent right next to it.

Entry to the Lookout
Walking up to the Castle we came across this artist who painted little scenes of Lisbon with coffee - very original!
The various modes of transport we found were unique - from tuk-tuks to bicycles, from segways to these bright yellow tricycles we saw near the Castle...
Also near the Castle on our way down to some of Lisbon's best lookouts, we came across this plastic flower covered cube hanging in a courtyard, attached to a metal turtle.
