This mural in Lisbon entitled "Lisbon Story" describes in humorous comic strip fashion the history of Lisbon from it's foundation till recent times.

Painted by comic strip illustrator Nuno Saraiva, the mural can be found on the Arch of Rua Norberto de Araujo, near the Portas do Sol (Sun gates) lookout.

  2. Goodness that's a complicated one Sami, I bet that took the artist a bit of time to do.

  4. I'm so impressed Sami, you must have taken 100's of great photos on your recent trip. Portugal must be a world leader in street art?!

    1. Thank you Mariette. Right now Perth is full of blooming jacaranda trees, so I thought it would give the blog some colour! Have a great weekend too. My daughter has just arrived from Holland yesterday to spend 1 month with us, so we're having a wonderful time!
