Saturday Photo: Lisbon, New and Old

Lisbon is a beautiful mixture of architecture over the centuries. I liked this juxtaposition of a late 20th century building with one from the late 19th century building.

The two co-exist pleasantly not far from the major traffic circle where the Marqes de Pombal, who saw to the rebuilding of the city after the disastrous earthquake of 1755, surveys what has become of the city.
