Cristo Rei

Looking at Lisbon on the south side of river Tejo, the Cristo Rei stands with his open arm protecting Lisbon.  It has been there for fifty years and enjoys receiving touritst and believers.

Yesterday, I was there as a taxi driver or a tour guide and had a chance to take photos. 


The weather was great, clouds added some drama because last couple of days we had rain on and off.  This is the Lisbon's symbol 25 April bridge.  In 1974 Portuguese through the totalitarian Salazar regime on 25 April. 


Lisbon really looked fantastic from other side of the river.  On the right bottom corner of the photo you can see the monument for the Portuguese navigators.
