🇬🇧 see below ⬇️ 🇵🇹 A Sé de Lisboa ou a Igreja de Santa Maria Maior é a mais antiga igreja católica romana da cidade! A sua construção começou em 1147 e terminou nas primeiras décadas do século XIII, mas foi modificada várias vezes após desastres naturais pelo que hoje em dia é uma mistura de diferentes estilos arquitectónicos, nomeadamente românico, gótico e barroco. Foi classificada como Monumento Nacional em 1910 e é um ex-libris de Lisboa. Tive tanta sorte que ainda fui brindado pela passagem do eléctrico, outro clássico! Gostaram? . . . 🇬🇧 The Sé de Lisboa (Lisbon’s cathedral) or Santa Maria Maior Church is the oldest Roman Catholic church in the city!

🇬🇧 see below ⬇️ 🇵🇹 Esta é a belíssima Torre de Belém, um ícone do nosso país, cuja história foi marcada pela proximidade ao oceano e as descobertas marítimas de novos mundos. Erguida na margem norte do rio Tejo entre 1514 e 1520, estava nessa altura completamente cercada pelas águas que ao longo dos séculos recuaram, deixando-na envolvida pela praia, até encontrar terra firme. Esta jóia arquitectónica do reinado de D. Manuel I é composta pela torre medieval e pelo baluarte com dois níveis de disparo de artilharia, traduzindo a sua missão de defesa do estuário do Tejo. Está classificada pela UNESCO em 1983 como “Património Cultural da Humanidade" e é possivelmente o monumento português mais fotografado! Vale uma visita, não acham? . . . 🇬🇧 This is the beautiful Torre de Belém, an icon of our country, whose history was marked by the proximity to the ocean and the maritime discoveries of new worlds. Erected on the north bank of the Tagus River between 1514 and 1520, it was at that time completely surrounded by the waters that over the centuries retreated, leaving it surrounded by the beach, until it found land. This architectural jewel of the reign of D. Manuel I is composed of the medieval tower and the bastion with two levels of artillery fire, translating its mission to defend the Tagus estuary. It is classified by UNESCO in 1983 as "Cultural Heritage of Humanity" and is possibly the most photographed Portuguese monument! Worth a visit, don't you think? . . . . #torredebelém #belém #LisboaCool #lisboapt #visitlisbon #lisbonworld #discoverlisbon #lisboaride #wonderlustportugal #city_in_portugal #lisbonportugal #citybestviews #lisbon #lisboalovers #portugal_a_gramas #super_lisboa #beaglesofpetsagram #bark #beagle_shoutout #barkforce #beaglesofinstagram #animalsinfluence #mydogist #beagleboy #grumpybeaglesunited #ptsquad🐶
