Lisbon: Murals and Signs

I feel like I had taken a whole lot of photos in only 2 days in Lisbon and those 2 days seemed longer than they actually were. Signs are among the things I look out for when I visit another city, but lately I have also been fascinated by murals.

  1. Some of this looks like sanctioned graffiti. Many of these paintings are lovely but the buildings behind the art are also beautiful.

  2. Oh what pray tell is a Portuguesa? hehehe
    I like how McDonald's adapt their menu to the local taste.


    Those are definitely murals not graffiti, great idea to liven up a place.

  9. You found some outstanding murals. I don't have much of an experience basis, just the city I live in, but it seems like murals are getting more and more popular and better also.

  11. Beautiful photos captured. The art or graffiti on the walls of the buildings are very nice and it makes the place special.

  15. Heisann... Lisboa is a town I would like to visit, everyone I know who have been there, say it is a wonderful town... And you have an eye for different objects... and another point of view that I appreciate! Have a nice Sunday ;:OD)

  16. I like the mural with the donkey and the lady with the burden on her head. I think I like it best because it is really the only one I understand. Sort of hate to know that US Fast Food is everywhere -- it isn't a great advertisement for us (in my humble opinion).
