Portugal, the years of life are good

The Portuguese Republic, or Portugal for short, is located in southwestern Europe. The terrain is high in the north and low in the south, mostly mountainous and hilly. The land area is 92212 square kilometers, the capital is Lisbon, and the official language is Portuguese. As one of the oldest countries in Europe, Portugal has a history of eight centuries. Ups and downs in the long river of history. The years have given Portugal a unique rhyme of time. The rich artistic heritage under the time has created it without Breath of exquisite literature and art. Walking in this colorful country, the exquisite ceramic art is fascinating, the beautiful Manuel architecture is praiseworthy, and the luxurious and magnificent Baroque decoration is amazing … Take the tram 28 to walk through the city. Portugal’s vivid colors are everywhere, everywhere.

Lisbon, the most beautiful area of ​​the old city in Europe
Lisbon (Lisbon), the capital of Portugal, is a “city of seven hills” built on 7 hills. Buildings built on top of the mountain are arranged in an orderly manner on the hills by the sea, like separated chess boards. The orange-red roof merges into the lovely colors one after another in the sun, the blue sea is rippling, staring at the fiery romance interwoven by this piece of red and blue, every depressed heart can be illuminated and healed here . Some people say that the city of Lisbon is used to overlook. Climb to the São Jorge Castle and enjoy a panoramic view of Lisbon. Ride the cable car across the Tejo River and also get a panoramic view of the city. Of course, the 28-way retro tram is a must-see classic when roaming Lisbon. In Lisbon, there are 5 trams still in operation, but the 28 tram is the most famous. It has been in operation for more than 140 years and is the oldest tram in Europe. Today, the 28th road has become one of the symbols of Lisbon, and its lines perfectly connect all the most beautiful areas in the city.

With this antique yellow, along the criss-cross, high and low tracks, jingling through Alfama, Shangcheng District, Pasha District and Chiado District … Curved and steep alleyways, retro mottled The house reflects the weight of history and the beauty of vicissitudes, and the exquisite and unique tiles and graffiti silently tell the unique charm unique to Lisbon. The superposition of each station adds another layer to my love for Lisbon.

Manuel’s “treasure”
The era of the great voyage has ended, but the memory of the great voyage always flows in the hearts of every Portuguese. The Torre de Belém towering over the port of Lisbon, built in the early 16th century, is known as “one of the seven wonders of Portugal” and is also a symbol of Lisbon. In the era of great navigation, navigators such as Da Gama began their expedition from here, and the returning fleet was also here to unload the gold jewels and spicy satin trafficked back from the distant and mysterious East. This tower has witnessed the glory that Portugal once had. The Monument to the Discoverers (Padr? O dos Descobrimentos) near Belem Tower, shaped like a ship with huge sails, is a landmark building built to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the death of the navigator Prince Enrique The lifelike floating statue of the navigator is the best tribute to the era of the great voyage. The Jeronimos Monastery (Mosteiro dos Jerónimos) is located opposite the Monument of the Discoverers and is a symbol of the golden age of Portuguese navigation. Before exploring, each explorer will go to the monastery to pray and bless himself to return safely. Jeronimos Monastery is a perfect blend of Gothic and Renaissance architecture. Later generations regarded it as the “treasure” of Manuel. This ancient building, rated as a World Cultural Heritage, cannot be copied by history. only.

The most authentic Portuguese cuisine
“Onde a terra acaba eo mar comeca” (Onde a terra acaba eo mar comeca), this poem comes from “The Song of Luzitanians”, the greatest poet in Portugal, Camus, engraved with this name The poem’s cross monument stands at Cabo da Roca-38 degrees 47 minutes north latitude, 9 degrees 30 minutes west longitude, about 40 kilometers away from Lisbon, at the westernmost point of the European continent. One of the 50 best places to visit. At the “end of the world”, overlooking the wind, under the magnificence of the integration of mountains, sea and sky, the tender romantic romance that I once imagined and turned into courage for the ancestors to explore the unknown world Deep awe: On the other side, there is nothing but sea water. No one knows the boundaries of the sea except God. Human exploration of life is endless and endless. When you are in Lisbon, you can’t miss the most famous local food-Portuguese egg tarts, sprinkled with icing sugar and cinnamon powder, is the most authentic Portuguese way to eat. The best egg tarts in Lisbon come from the Pastéis de Belém next to the Jeronimos Monastery. It is also the earliest shop in the world that sells egg tarts. It is a veritable originator of Portuguese egg tarts. The Portuguese egg tarts still made with traditional ancient recipes, and each of Huang Cancan’s mellow sweetness is an infatuated fascination.

Porto, intoxicating slow time
Porto (Porto), which means “port” in Portuguese, is the second largest city in Portugal. This city, like a cup of mellow wine, has a vintage charm and exudes vitality and sweetness. “Porto is small, and walking is the best way to visit the city,” the locals said.

The Rio Douro, which flows through the city, divides it in two. The south bank of the river is the new city of Gaya, famous for the wine cellar street, and the north bank is the old city of Porto, where ancient buildings gather. The Bridge of Ponte Dom Luís I (Ponte Dom Luís I), which connects the new city and the old city across the Douro River, is one of Porto ’s landmarks. This spectacular steel art work is a masterpiece of the famous designer Eiffel and the Paris Tower The same masculine beauty burst out. The bridge is divided into upper and lower floors, the upper floor is the passage of trams, the lower floor is the passage of ordinary vehicles, and there are special pedestrian passages on both floors. The bridge itself is already a beautiful landscape, and the upper level of the bridge is a good place to look at the Douro River and overlook both sides of Porto. This reminds me of Bian Zhilin’s “Broken Chapter”: You stand on the bridge and look at the scenery, and the person watching the scenery looks at you upstairs. Mingyue decorates your windows, you decorate other people’s dreams.

There is a story written in every color
Portugal ’s deep tile culture is vividly displayed in the streets and alleys of Porto. Strolling in the city, the simple and clear blue and light are interlaced in the outer walls of the church, the floor tiles of the restaurants, the balcony of the residential houses along the street … Inadvertent corners, there are occasional surprises full of water blue lurking waiting. Every piece of color is full of stories, exuding the glory and vicissitudes of Portugal. São Bento Train Station (S? O Bento Train Station) in Almeida Garret Square is the most beautiful train station in Portugal. Walking into it is like being in a colorful museum. The 20,000 blue hand-painted tiles in the station, by the artist George Rasso, portray the natural scenery, humanities, arts and historical events of Portugal, vividly showing the countless important moments of the former sea dominance The deep love of the sea also melts into that blue. History has survived in the form of art. I looked at the blue and white walls covered with white walls. There is no way to tell the past of a city more profoundly.

A place frequented by the authors of “Harry Potter”
When visiting Porto, the Leiro Bookstore is a must-try checkpoint. Livraria Lello, one of the ten most beautiful bookstores in the world, has opened in 1906 for more than 100 years. This neo-Gothic style bookstore was the place frequented by JK Rowling, the author of “Harry Potter”, when he lived in Porto at the time, and was also the inspiration for his creation. The red wooden spiral staircase that leads directly to the roof of the bookstore is chic and beautifully curved, with a distinctive Manuel style. The elegant and beautiful carvings seem to inhabit a century of time, and the image exquisitely interprets the “stairway to heaven. “The deep meaning. This spiral staircase is also the prototype of the magic staircase at Hogwarts School in Harry Potter. The sound of rustling pages echoed in my ears, and a ray of soft light poured through the delicate stained glass skylights, mottled light and shadows, looking up at the beautiful clear skies of Porto, and a smile in the scent of coffee.

Port wine is the soul of Porto and is also named after the city of Porto, which the locals call “sunshine in a bottle”. Port wine is a fortified wine. Brandy is added during the fermentation process, so it retains a lot of sweetness, rich taste, sweetness, and thickness. It is also stronger and longer than ordinary wines. The alcohol level is generally 18-20 ° . Crossing the Lucis I Bridge to the south bank of the wine cellar Gaya New City, the air seems to be filled with a faint aroma of wine. There are many historic wine cellars in the block. The famous Taylors, Sandeman, Calem, Ferreira are very Wine cellar worth visiting. Many wine cellars are open to tourists, and there are dedicated staff to introduce the development history of their wine cellars, lead the tour of winemaking equipment, explain the brewing process and storage methods of port wine, and finally let visitors taste different tastes of port wine. The mellowness and sweetness of alcohol remain on the tip of the tongue, just like Porto feels. It is ancient and long, with no charm.

World Heritage
I especially love Cais da Ribeira. In 1996, UNESCO will recognize the area from Libera Pier to Liberia Square as a world cultural heritage. The area is located in the heart of the old town, on the edge of the Douro River, and is loved by Porto people and tourists. Look for a cafe, sit down and listen to the singing and singing of street artists, watch the boats on the Douro River shuttle back and forth, the afternoon Iberian sun is gentle and lazy, and the time seems to have a kind of slow and comfortable before.

The lively and fragrant Portugal, mottled in the sun, is as charming as the same poem, mellow and wonderful, and looks better than any flower. Walk slowly in the streets and alleys, and feel the good old days in the lazy pace. In the melodious Fado tune, listen to the passing time and feel the most authentic life after the hustle and bustle. I think of Fernando Pessoa ’s poem: In bright sunlight, even the sound will shine.
