Explore the Heart of Lisbon on Foot and Gloria Funicular
Our guide told us all kinds of stuff about the area and it's history. The houses in this part of town have multiple families in them now and sharing the space with so many people makes it easier to afford.
Lisbon is famous for having tiles on their buildings which comes from when the area was controlled by the Moors.
Lisbon Cathedral looks a lot different that other cathedrals we've seen in Europe. It looks like it is a fortress or a castle. It's not going to fall down anytime soon.
We walked through Rossio Square and there was relaxing music playing everywhere.

One of the guys from our tour group stopped and got some roasted chestnuts. Apparently they are really good so try some when you go to Lisbon.
We saw these vehicles everywhere. If we ever come back to Lisbon we are going to have to take a ride in one of them. They are called tuk tuks. The Tuk Tuk tours looked fun.
The streets were pretty neat. There was an Irish Pub playing the baseball game for tourists. The Portuguese don't watch Baseball they like soccer (football).
Our guide told us about Lisbon's history of earth quakes that have cause havoc for the city over the years.
Here is a few video clips from our walking tour. Sorry for the shakiness of the camera.
