Lisboa such a charming city

I have discovered this city for the first time, Lisboa or Lisbon is such a charming city. I was impressed by the beauty of the buildings, churches, the azulejos facades made of colorful tiles. Portugese food is also wonderful, especially seafood, and the pastry shops are one of the best attractions of the town. The famous Pasteis de Nata is a must there, you can't leave Lisboa without tasting this flan with crispy contour dessert which is simply delicious. 
Here is the Baixa Chiado neighborhood where i stayed at, a very nice and animated part of Lisbon, with clothes boutiques, ceramics, shoe shops, the Fnac, pastry shops and even a Nespresso boutique. 

Not to forget the "A Brasileira" famous café, art deco design, and the bronze statue of Pessoa, a famous poet & writer which has become a tourists' attraction.
Every tourist who visits Lisbon has to take a picture with Pessoa's statue, so did i. :-)

The Pasteis de Nata is a delicious flan-like dessert, the one in the middle of the above picture.
