Lisbon, capital of Portugal, is characterized by great diversity and a rich cultural life. Vasco da Gama and Fernando Pessoa have both, though in a very different account, changed the way we see the world, now fivecitybook authors will certainly change the way you see Lisbon.
The citybook of Lisbon will be highlighted this week. Five authors and one photographer share how they experienced the Portuguese capital.
Photographer Maria Fialho made a photo series with 24 images of Lisbon. The inspiration for the series was the quote: Não é por nada que olho: é que eu gosto de ver as pessoas sendo” (‘Not for nothing do I look; I love to see the people be’).
The stories being told about Lisbon vary from stories about love from Dulce Maria Cardoso to sharing how it is to grow up in Lisbon by José Maria Vieira Mendes. You can find the citybook of Lisbon here.
