The total number of deaths was estimated to be between thirty to fifty thousand people. The earthquake didn't just affect lisbon. However it also affected cities all along the coast of portugal. The city of l. Garvey was devastated as were many other smaller communities in the south there may also have been as many as ten thousand people killed along the coast of morocco. The tsunami went across the atlantic ocean causing damage to islands in the caribbean and in brazil the ramifications of the earthquake were wide reaching ineffective places around the world far removed from portugal for starters in the aftermath of the earthquake. There was a semi organized relief effort in the past. If something like this had happened everyone would have mostly been on their own prime minister. Sebastien odell mellow organized. The relief efforts including an organized corpse removal to avoid adding a fourth disaster to the city disease. He did mass. Burials at sea to quickly and efficiently remove bodies even over objections from the catholic church. He organized teams of firefighters. Once the initial firestorm die down the army was brought in to deter looting and gallows were actually constructed in public areas around the town to discourage looting on december fourth barely a month later. Plans were unveiled for a new lisbon. The new city of lisbon was started from scratch with new wide streets. Unlike most european capitals lisbon is laid out like a modern plant city for this reason. The new buildings which were erected in lisbon are known as pump blind buildings named after the marquee pombal. Who is the chief city planner for the new lisbon pump buildings where some of the first in the world to be built to resist seismic forces. They were also prefabricated which allowed him much of lisbon to be rebuilt in record time. The earthquake also was the beginning of the modern science of seismology or the study of earthquakes.

"Many large earthquakes throughout history. Many of them share very common stories in terms of the devastation which they left behind what sets the great lisbon earthquake. Apart from other such disasters is that it was really three different disasters that hit the city on the same day. All three disasters had the same genesis but the sequence in which they hit. The city made the day far more deadly than it would have been otherwise as i mentioned in the introduction november. I was a holy day on the catholic calendar which meant that. Everyone was supposed to attend church that morning. This actually is an important fact. That will play into the story later. The population of lisbon in seventeen fifty five was approximately two hundred and seventy five to three hundred thousand people. Lisbon was the capital of the portuguese empire which held territory in europe south africa africa asia and many smaller islands in between this made lisbon one of the most important cities in the world at the time at nine thirty a. m. as people were going to or attending church. The first tremor struck they were loud and noticeable but they didn't cause much in the way of destruction the console from the city of hamburg. Germany later reported quote. We i heard a rumble like the noise of a carriage and it became louder and louder until it was as loud as the loudest noise of a gun immediately after that we felt the i tremble unquote based on what happened. Modern estimates are that there was a slip in the azores gibraltar transform. Fault this fault line that runs. Approximately from the strait of gibraltar. to the a'sore islands. One tectonic plate was thrust over another and the movement of land might have been as much as one cluster. The epicenter of the earthquake was believed to have been just off the southwestern most point of portugal near cape saint vincent at nine forty a m. The main earthquake hit church bells ringing all over the city and just as quickly buildings began to collapse. The churches which were full of people were the largest source of casualties for a period of ten minutes. There were three major quakes that shook the city to its foundations. It's estimated that the earthquake measured eight point four on the richter scale just to give you an idea of how much the ground moved in the middle of lisbon city center. There were fissures in the ground. Five meters or sixteen feet wide. The earthquake was the first of the three disasters as the quake was in progress..

Portugal's Art and Architecture

"Let's start today's travel with rick. Steves in portugal. The architecture and the art of portugal to tell the story of that small country squeezed between spain and the atlantic ocean. You can wander through museums classical and romantic paintings to styles with the largest impact on portuguese painters or you can take in the beautiful. Blue azoulay zhou tiles. That ornament many of portugal's buildings to learn more about portugal's art and architecture. We're joined in our studio by two portuguese guides. Christina duarte and refco christina and raphael. Thanks for joining us. Average abuse here. Rick christina so often to understand the art of a country you need to understand its economy. There's money behind the art. How does money shape the art in the architecture of patrols. When you have money you want be surrounded by beautiful. Things actually is universal. Everybody wants to be surrounded by beautiful things. The thing is that you don't afford it many times and when you afford them you have them in portugal much money then because they have great art from five hundred years ago yes well. It is a combination of two major. Factors the fifteen hundreds with the discovery. Spirit that allowed us to have for the first time money enough for our trade with many places in the world so automatically the royalty had many the nobility had money and the church have many and the coincidence is that your have money and you have also religion behind it so which. She's being major catholic. Contrary in thinking that you want to give your best and you'll beauty to your your glorify gone exactly to glorify god so They were two kinds of ways of spending that money in art. Which was the private and that will be for palaces that nobody will see and to god in churches and i consider that public art so review. All you have this money coming in from the trade in fact the churches were actually nicknamed spice churches. How how does the space tie into the building of churches. Well when portugal arrived to places like india and china and we started to bring all of these new products. Back to portugal. They revolutionized portugal they revolutionized our economy and from there on the society started to change and that is one of the interesting aspect of art is that it reflects the other dimensions of society. So the spices. There were They were a major factor. For example the jeronimos monastery that began to be built precisely with the money that came from the spices. Which bases were these that were so valuable. So you had Pepper you had cinema And many others in christina. Why would people spend so much money for pepper and cinnamon app to preserve no sleaze to preserve refrigeration also to Pigments of any kind for linen. Or tying dying yes. it was something exotic. It was different. People never seen it before. So imagine the first time you are smelling coffee or you're tasting pepper or you're smelling cinema. Imagine the impact that you had imagined how it sparked your imagination so the wealthy people would want this. It would be titillating for them now. You mentioned the monastery at toronto's same just outside of lisbon b. l. e. m. I believe that was men. Welland style architecture. What is men whalen. What we're does that word come from so The men willing style is named after our kingman. Well actually the name was given only in the nineteenth century during the romantic period but kingman while he was one of the most important kings during our age of exploration so he ruled from the time of columbus until fifteen twenty began to rule in fourteen ninety five until the fifteen twenty s in the nineteenth century. They figured out that. We had a several monuments throughout portugal. That shared the same characteristics. So what are the characteristics. If you look at the front of a church what will you see and you go. Oh that's men welland from fifteen twenty so the manor line is late gothic style so you have the basic structure of the gothic and then over that basic structure of the gothic. You have a very specific declaration. You have for example. Maritime mothes you have the strong. Heraldic of manuel specially to miller rece- fear so that the coat of arms of the royal family and then themes from the sea because the money came from the see exactly like the rope the rope a rope with an art. He's a very very important symbol of maryland.

"Who thought was fear who died or sphere so we are jeopardising and planet and so we are transmitting kind of old logical apt to be paid by the coming generations. Now that's really interesting and diving back further into some of these challenges of the environmental crisis that were currently in in the book. Security at a crossroad new tools for new challenges. You highlight the seven categories of human security. Can you elaborate on these and in your view. What are some of the challenges. Climate change poses the human security. We pleasure well when we speak largly about security. We seek immediately in terms of strategy in terms of military security. Mealy padded balance that that's their own conception. It's an old one. In pastor twenty years ago one hundred years ago it was the logical to sink in that way today is completely not just out of fashion but completely wrong indeed we have in one thousand nine hundred ninety four due united nations development programme hip hop that was published that ear ninety four and fast. Mr comprehensive concept of human security trying to look to security also and basically from the perspective of the individual of the person of ourselves. What do we as citizens of our countries as citizens of the world. What are for us. The main dimensions features of security and the seven categories. That you mentioned are part of that vision of the does forming the paradigm of security. They are basically the following so economic security. That's completely embarked on a world that is grown to have more jobless pupil on account of the pandemic situation economic security is also key mention food security l. security other two very important dimensions and afar mental security. Well site that environmental security is out call because it entails also tells that i mentioned personnel security to be at his as individual to feel safe. No matter your race your sex orientation your level of matteo wells community security to leaving the a safe community and political security. I think those seven dimensions. As i mentioned the in india saturday. Your referred are in my opinion. Very connective we'd debate contribution of one. Probably the most famous on the most important american presidents ever. I mean President franklin delano roosevelt. That's in defames. Speaks of the state of the union. Nineteen forty one spoke about the need to have at global level much says that the lead hall states at global level four freedoms in those four freedoms as probably menu voter listeners know by heart our freedom of speech and expression freedom of elision in the words of who's freedom of every person to worship god freedom from want freedom for firm one means that we are secure in times of our access to material wealth. So we have access to food. We have a job so he has to do with the economic realm and finally freedom from from fear meaning that we live in a safe world that a world that is not going to be disturbed by evasions by warfare. I think that the table proposed in nineteen ninety-four by europe is very ramani is an looniest and goes into roots of the proposal of president holds felt in delay that is intended not for a particular community particular specific country but these intended for the world as a whole using expression of hillsdale everywhere in the world so the idea to have an international system not just international law but international system that is able to assure the implementation of those dimensions of security and of course if we look to climate change if we look to environmental crisis what do we see we see that all those dimensions are imperial are jeopardized are endangered. Let me give you an example. I was shocked this summer. I was working. In september. And suddenly i realized that the beak fires end and in the american west namely in the state of oregon and a very beautiful state by dial already traveled Some years ago oregon is a state. We if you more or less five million in evidence and i was told that five hundred thousand americans inhabitants of the state of oregon where on the move running from d. huge fires that where crossing the states. Many many other states are was very eat by those big fires. Those big fires started studying speaking starting in the summer of two thousand seventeen in portugal. We have dumais major beak fires. One of them in october. Two thousand seventeen was one of severe and damaging vic auditing eastern and those fires at the direct connection with climate change. So we are not speaking about a matter of nature all sciences so as we are speaking about the way in which we can cope in our society in the way in which we can look forward into the future that is the question is about the future questions about security question is about the continuation of our life on earth. We have to shift dramatically. The way in which we are navigating our way of dwelling on earth must be profoundly shift absolutely and i know that there are many who view climate change as a threat multiplier as it can potentially exacerbate many of the current challenges in threats that members of our global community are facing such as food insecurity and infectious diseases. The former un secretary general bunker moon had stated that climate change would not only exacerbate these existing threats to peace and security but climate change is also itself a threat to peace and security. So it's kind of a driver both things and as we see these cascading effects of climate change continued to impact natural resources. It will continue to drive and apple by complex. And we've seen this began to happen in some developing nations that have had a lesson capacity for.

The Beginning of Black History

"Most of us think that the first Africans to arrive in what is now the United States, we're slaves, but it turns out that that's not true. The first African to set foot on what would become United States soil was a free black man named Juan Garrido. A conquistador, the Spanish name for a conqueror. Rita was born around fourteen eighty in west Africa. As a young man he traveled to Lisbon. Portugal then to Sa- V. Spain when he converted to the Roman Catholic. Church he took a new name Juan Garrido meaning handsome John. He winds up sailing with the Spanish is a free person as A. Door and spends three decades in service to the Spanish crown. In fifteen thirteen garrido participated in Pants Dale Fain expedition in Florida in search of the Fountain of Youth. This is the first record of a black person setting foot in what is now the United States. What does that mean? It means that there was this space people of African descent could occupy. That wasn't exclusively being a person of bondage. RETO. Settled in Mexico where he spent his final years working at a gold mining operation and while he was a freeman, he profited from local slave labor. Garrido died in fifteen fifty almost seventy years before the first enslaved Africans arrived in Jamestown?

Whitewashed buildings, lots of gardens, tropical plants and flowers has a quite large port of is mentioned for the cruise ships for me. The thing that I really liked about fun challenge was the cable car which you can catch up to the village of Monty it's a really worthwhile trip when your infant child to catch the cable car up into the mountainside village of Monty as a beautiful church. There also has lots of beautiful gardens as well and from Charles Botanical Garden is up near Monte as well. Really recommend the fifteen. Minute, cable car journey maybe you suffer from Vertigo not such a good idea takes about fifteen minutes bit expensive I think a return trip is sixteen euros but I would say is well, well worth it just staying with for shall one of the interesting areas for me was fun channels Old Town these Zona via you will I across the Mercado Sh- labradors an art deco indoor market just past that you ahead into the old part of town, which is kind of old see merchants houses a nineteenth century fishermen's cottages I'm? Quite rundown it's quite surprised and you get a good bird's eye view of the neighborhood when you take the cable car up to Monte. Amazing Tommy just derelict an unused houses there are in the neighborhood. Falling Down Roofs missing windows missing this thing gives you a certain charm. But you will find the old town is kind of the center of. The restaurant scene a bit touristy. There is one particular street which we walked down, which is called a Rua Dr Santamaria lot of the restaurants along A. Guy is standing restaurants menus in the hand like I said in similar to lisburn on the Luau rooster very pretty, and I'm not saying the restaurant. But we just saw it pressured walking down that street. You're kind of trapped all the way along the length of this rule Santamaria. We did was we actually went back up the side of the street and founder more traditional every day restaurant where we notice lots of locals were eating. So we decided to go there and the end of the day Santamaria opens out into a Lovely Square Lago Corporal Santo, where you will find the Capella door. Corp.. Santo, which is the old fishermen's chapel, and then just past there's you had had back towards the seafront you find the station to catch the cable car up to Monte just another thing to mention about Montana and unfortunately we didn't do it is you may have seen this before but Monte is the little village where they have these street to bogans. Pushed by guys wearing these white uniforms I used to be used. Back in the early twentieth century as a way of transporting goods downhill. But today, it's a fun thing to do and attraction to do compare I. Don't know how much it is to sit on one of these street sledge's wooden sledges with wicker baskets. She basically sit in a wicker basket and these two guys push you at very high speeds down these winding streets. It looks great fun from the videos of senior subtly the day. which was a Sunday they went operating but we did see all of the sledge's all of the toboggans the wicker basket stack top in the street. So just about the Se Cathedral as a said, it was the Sixteenth Century Cathedral which once time oversaw the world's largest diocese from Portugal's. Territories from a data to Brazil an even as far as Angola while its importance reflected by this style of architecture you remember I talked about in in Lisbon man will lean architectural style and you'll see that the say cathedrals clock tower dominates from Chelsea skyline. Dominates, but it's not that big. It's just the Fancsali on such a small scale. For me, it kind of looks like a normal church tower really not far from from Charlie's place called Kabo Zero There's about three kilometers west of a place they loesch which maderas highest seek lifts which rise to five hundred, eighty meters. The reason for going there is there's a viewing platform and absolutely spectacular viewing platform, which has a long flaw not for people who suffer from Vertigo don't like heights but I think that goes for most of Madera. Really, if you don't like heights, don't go to my data unless you just plan staying in front the time, but it's a really spectacular viewpoint cobbled is zero. You've got this viewing platform which sticks out over the cliff which. Seemed to becoming fashionable all over the world. Now, don't they these with these see through glass flaws and you get a great view across to French. I'll from there as well. Early I mentioned these things called Lara's now these. Aquifers basically carry water around the island there actually developed Tennis Sixteen Th Century by Portuguese, builders to carry water to agricultural regions in the south from the center of the island and from the North Madeira is very mountainous. So these Levada kind of skirt mountain size the cut into the side of cliffs and mountains, and what today Levada is don't only supply water to the southern parts of the island. They also provide hydroelectric power and there are over two thousand kilometers of these Nevada's one hundred and one thousand, three, hundred miles of these Varda's, and they have kind of accidentally doubled up as a network of walking and hiking routes because the Lavar does which kind of made of stone. And they're about a meter wide with the water flowing through them of course, to be able to maintain these LAVARRA's and sluice them off and clean them out. They will say built a network of paths alongside them an quite an easy for the most part relaxing walking experience for the countryside. Couple of the Levada walks that Karina I did was at one live other though Caldero where they and the other door carney sil-, and these lavarra's often take cute to these beautiful interior lakes and waterfalls. Ip check out they went in Spain instagram account. You'll see some photos posted of a really beautiful waterfall. One of the these trials takes to replace CARABA SAL it takes you to a place. Called the twenty-five fundraise all twenty-five waterfalls, cascades, Poos a great place to chill out and relax they do get busy I mean obviously with this situation of covid nineteen, these places weren't as busy as they normally are there. We managed to get the place to ourselves for about twenty minutes and another people started arriving. The recommendation is if you want to enjoy and how these waterfalls and the springs and Middle Interior Lakes and Paul still south is to go early in the morning but we were lucky enough to go in the afternoon late afternoon and it wasn't too busy for me. One of the highlights of the island was displaced Code Mira Douro. Does Paul Coche Balcony viewpoint basically you? have to drive up to a village called Ribeiro Frio, which is very picturesque.

"Okay. So data from Lisburn. An hour and a half flight out into the Atlantic Ocean I would say that maybe when we think of data, we might just think of four to find wine Cristiano Ronaldo. One of its most famous export in fact, I, saw the Cristiano Renaldo Statue at the airport in Medina at the beginning this is quite controversial because it was a really bad likeness is nothing like Cristiano. Renaldo. Well, kind of. Mutilated version they've since replaced attach with one that looks more like Ronaldo. But you will see that at the airport when you arrive the thing that's interesting about the approach to data. Is. The location of the Airport Madeira is basically a huge volcanic rock with very few places which actually. Big Enough and flat enough to to accommodate a runway. So what they've done in data is they've built the runway out on a kind of platform on big concrete pillars. So the runway extends out into the sea and really interesting approach when you come into land and the other thing I noticed as well when he leave the apple, the road from the apple kind of curves. Under the runway and underneath the run web never seen this anywhere else in a well before underneath the runway tennis courts, basketball courts, and things like that is really interesting. The way they've designed it anyway data, which means would in. Portuguese. Our into it's green and wooded nature is about five hundred and forty miles from Lisbon and about three hundred and sixty miles from Morocco. sub-tropical tropical SPEC and the Atlantic sting with exotic color. Warm Year round rarely gets below around twenty degrees, Celsius. Yes. Absolutely. Enchanting Island some people call it the pearl of the Atlantic the island of eternal spring is really like an emerald isle. I suppose it reminded me of a kind of. Between the north of Spain into its greenery reminded me of a mix between gala leafier. US reminded me a little bit of whales back in the UK or Cornwall in the South West of the UK mixed with. Of sub-tropical Islands, some people call it the Hawaii of Europe and very dramatic volcanic. It has two or three of Portugal's highest peaks which I talk about a little bit later and really the attraction of the island is the natural beauty I'm having said that there is so many things you can do for such a small island particularly outdoor activities you can do mountain walks there must be thousands of kilometers of hiking sailing. You can do Dolphin and whale watching diving fishing canyoning surfing paragliding an abundance of outdoor activities. To do and one of my favorites which we did a little bit of while we were there is something called Levada walking. Now LAVARRA's these kind of watercourses or manmade water channels which direct water all over the island started up in in the highest peaks of the island and channel water down into the valleys to the villages and towns, and in order to maintain these levers, these water channels which are only about a meter will so wide, they have pathways running alongside them. So therefore, they are be ideal. hiking routes and many hiking routes around the island run alongside these water channels. Varda's but Madeira Island, it's actually an archipelago situated in the North Atlantic Ocean in the region known as Macronesia two hundred and fifty miles north of the Canary Islands and about three hundred and twenty miles west of Morocco, not particularly large island thirty, four miles long and at its widest point around fourteen miles, and it has around ninety miles of coastline and rises in the center to the review peak, which hits one. Thousand eight hundred and sixty one meters has just over six thousand feet. One thing noticed about one thing you'll notice about the geography of the island is the as i. said, there are really very few penalty Allen which are actually flat even the coastline they mountains of the interior don't slope down gently to the beaches you have these very dramatic cliff drops down to the sea. The other thing talking about beaches on the island is the they're very stony and rocky. There are a couple of sandy beaches on data. But they're actually man-made imported fine sand from Morocco in fact, but you'll find most of the beaches around the island are very rugged and rocky and Pedley. You'll also find that to get to the beaches. The very steep descents are the driving in a car. In fact, many of the beaches actually have cable cars which take down from clifftops to the beaches, and just what I'm talking about driving it's important to mention I think that really the best way to get the most out of Madeira. is to hire a car and that's what we did. We hide. Carl the airport and we have the car for the entire time that we were there to be honest with the really you need a car to explore the island properly there are bus routes which connect the kind of bigger towns around the island. But. If you really want to get out into the Wilderness, if you want to see these mountains and these hiking routes and you. Want to see as much of the islanders. Possible. Really I would say a car is essential job on that note will also say that driving in Madeira is pretty. Pretty terrifying experience. If.

However, the Portuguese accent and the Portuguese way of pronouncing vowel sounds on the letter S. is completely different to Spanish. Portuguese. Spoken competitors written would say it's free difficult to understand.

"Okay. So let's talk food and drink food and drinking Lisburn is in my experience. Fantastic. He got to know where to go I suppose a four, avoid the touristy places like I mentioned. That goes for anywhere in the world seafood fish and meat as well. I'm very affordable if you manage to find out of normal everyday neighborhood restaurant, incredibly good value the two nights that we were there we ate out. We paid for basically three calls meal and a bottle of wine something like that. He five euros really fantastic mine. Good. But. In terms of what you're gonNA find commonly on offer. So called back allow. Everyone dry salted card. Millions of ways of preparing it. You a buck, allow a brush with his shredded with onions and eggs and potatoes. Commonly found up in the body. Alto, you quite simply just have grill court. You'll have all types of fish. Tuna monkfish Saudi grilled very simply with `tatoes and solid is very common. Main course you'll find octopus Shuna shrimp clams and snails as well. Snails a quite popular but one of my favorite preparations of the evac allowed is the crocodile. Basically, unlike Spanish croquettes excuse ones made we'd like a special source inside but they're made with potatoes. Mashed potato flaked back allow caught flake tuned mix with Parsley, garlic salt and pepper, and then sometimes I coated in ICA breadcrumbs and fried absolutely delicious delicious net. You find them lots of hole in the wall kind of places around the city just to take away. Sort of little tap pass almost you can find them no restaurants but some restaurants will offer them as a starter or is this snack to go with a drink I would highly recommend trying it would be remiss of me not to mention the PASTELLE THEY NATTA? Or the Space Benneteau pastiches the plural postal they not. In the singular these are the famous egg custard tarts -solutely. Wonderful. Very addicted there. Yeah. It cost tossed. So actually been to the Catholic monks, the state of the those shown Emot- in Milan. Famously. Served since eighteen thirty, seven in ANTIGA compete career they bellum and you can find them everywhere in the city today absolutely everywhere so that Chris Puff Pastry missed spilled with custard cream baked until the golden. Then they dusted with cinnamon most famous place to try them. As I said, is the Pasta de Belem which has been going since eighteen, thirty seven. Interestingly, the origin behind the pastiche was the nuns amongst us to use egg whites to staunch their clothes. So the quite stops that Claes hence, they always had loads and loads of headaches leftover. Addition I ordered one evening when we ate out in his beautiful little restaurant up in the valley. Was a dish called face Wada face water is a skew of beans beef and pork notch. I didn't really know what it was until I. Basically just said to the guy in the restaurant. What would you recommend? Is the most delicious thing. Many what would you order and he said to me all you must. You must try the phase weather and wow. This is really huge portion really heavy stew of beans beef pork. They also throw in like blood sausage and basically Portuguese version of Theresa, which is jewelry so Cook Taylor and low heat from time. Wow. It's so labor. So I was absolutely blown away by this this served with a side of rice and disobeys excited. But absolutely delicious Berry Hardy probably more of a winter dish. If I'm honest I was absolutely stuffed in food camera of eating it but it was so flavor sunlight just couldn't stop myself. So the face Wada, it reminded me a lot of the Prada you find in the north of Spain and also reminded me slightly off the Costea the Madrileno the St that we get here Madrid over his son is something that you would only really wyndhams. Maybe onto drink the thing which is very typical in Lisbon very specific to Lisbon is this little tipple. Little Cherry Cure Code Jinja. defined a Lisbon and it's a little cherry cure said, served a little shot glasses sell in various kiosks around the city or holy war bars. Sometimes, it sources served in a little chocolate cops drink than a little cherry to cure, and then you eat the chocolate up as well. Many step to. Do. Try It. It's it's an acquired taste. I guess I like it so. I think carrying the Senate. Reminded her of. Cough medicine. In fact, while we were there, we went to the home, the birthplace of Ginger, and here's a little bit of audio recorded where. I'm standing outside a place called. Gene? Has Jinya some locals describing having a quick shot now time to a hole in the place. Engineer is Cherry to cure and you can order. With Whole Cherries.

Espanola made the experiment of Letting Cherries ferment in brandy adding sugar water and Cinema. Success was immediate. Both because it was sweet because it was inexpensive engine genia became the typical beverage of Lisburn and it's true. You can find these little engineer holes in the walls around the city but also probably nicer she and some of the little squares they have these little gin. Yeah. Stems little mini bars inside metal kind of very decorative very pretty on metal round pick a bit like sort of news. Kiosk. Stands the old style ones but they actually settled. Virginia let's go quite a kick to it. Looks Good. Okay. So how long should you spend in Lisbon while we were there for two nights in about two and a half days? I guess I would say warrants a bit more time we can fit and everything, but we would have liked to have done is the perfect city to visit for maybe three nights four days or maybe not five nights and they're also really beautiful places to visit surrounding Lisbon like the town of Sintra. Cash as well. One thing is worth mentioning is language now obviously Portugal Portuguese now when I see Portuguese Richard. I can almost understand. A good level when you see Portuguese return, it looks very similar to Spanish I.

"They have really adorable really beautiful wooden rickety old trans, a great way to explore the city and saving your legs in the process. It's just a really fun experience and it's amazing to see how these trump's negotiate these incredibly steep streets and really tight bends as well. We used to twenty eight to get around and get up to how Pharma and sort of. Navigate the center I'm really good value as well. We did is we bought a twenty four hour pass which costs about six euros eighty, ninety, seven years something that valid for twenty four hours you can use that one all of the trials and the buses, and in fact, you can even use it to go up on the some of the lifts as well. You can purchase a one way ticket few drive on board. But if you want to buy one of these twenty, four hour passes you combine them in the metro stations so you can buy them in the little lottery shops where they sell national luxury tickets where people go to bets on horses gambling kind of a common with a cold I also sort of sound. Like tobacco as well as some of my act like a sort of post office. Anyway that's where we went. You can buy your ticket in that like I said less than seven years gives you unlimited use of the tram networks for twenty four hours is well worth it. As as I said, this kind of circuit, the city and the trump guys between how far. East and the passer they Martinez in the West the trampoline used today not talking about the modern ones with the older ones of trump's which date back to the nineteen thirties and they're very small.

"Hand painted tiles, which you will see adorning. Most things in fact, certainly most buildings in Lisbon Unfamiliar Lisbon it feels like an outdoor art gallery 'cause everywhere you walk around the city every other building is covered. The song of the buildings are covered in his kind of public eye candy of these Azoulay, who adorned buildings many of them are straightforward geometric designs but also there are more elaborate as well. Depicting historical scenes connected with Portuguese history. Some of them are just painted in blue white but many of the geometric designs are in all different colors and they're really spectacular especially when you get that. Bright, sunlight hitting them the history behind them Well, it's a legacy they are legacy of the malls. The towns originally came from Egypt and. The style was adopted by the Portuguese. They first became popular in Portugal in the fifteen hundreds and popularity decreased but there was this revival again of the African shores tiles in the. Nineteen. Fifties. A sequent Morton buildings of modern apartment buildings or at least buildings from the fifties and sixties again, a with these beautiful colorful tiles and you'll see religious buildings churches as well. coveted US something I think is very unique to Portugal and the great thing is and I would recommend this my my first visit to Lisbon I went there is there is the museum nacional do as relates. The national other Lecco Museum. which. is dedicated to all of the history and the art of this tire work in Portugal only about six or seven years to go in and the museum is actually housed inside what was a former convent the of matter. which takes back to fifteen or nine in the p the building itself where the museum is housed is is really worth visiting in its own right while we're talking about tiles I guess it's worth mentioning the paving. In Lisbon and again, not just in Lisbon in any anywhere I. Think I've been in Portugal the same style of paving the streets and I'm not quite sure what this story is behind it. I did over here tour guide in Lisburn saying that there was a special story behind this unique style of paving. In Portugal and certainly in Lisbon everywhere you walk around the city, you will notice under your feet a very ornate and intricate way of paving the streets and the pavements looks like black white sharks of marble. And these little shots of marble stone are set into the ground obviously, but they are laid out in such a way that all over the city they use these black and white stones to create beautiful geometric patterns in the pavements in the squares all around the city, and again, these make spectacular photographs you will find yourself looking up. These other tiles, but you also say you'll also find yourself looking down below your feet to see all over the city is really really intricate beautifully designed basically mosaics. Everywhere you go around the city black and white mosaic designs all of the pavements and square. Okay. Let's talk about transport. Now, as I said, the is very compact walkable in terms of the fact that you're not be walking in huge huge distances the problem is you're going to be giving your calf muscles are really good workout. It's in possible to navigate the city without climbing. Berry Steep Hills now my advice is is to use the tram system. Now enlistment you have two types of trump's you have the modern trams which navigate the kind of wide avenues and flatter parts of the city which extend out into outer neighborhoods and suburbs I suppose. But in the center of the city, you help these iconic vintage electric trams yellow and white in color they're called electricals. And they've been shaking and wrestling enrolling their way around the cities in about nineteen o one, the full that they were actually pulled by horses but they've had an electric, the electric tram system in the city since the very early nineteen hundreds, the iconic tram routes which. which we did, we call the twenty, eight, twenty, number twenty, eight. Tram. Anywhere way that you walking around the center of Lisbon, you can't fail to miss it. You will see because you will hear clanking along..

"There is something about the light in the city Very stark very seems to bring out the color of everything. So we're staying in a little pin seon in the neighborhood, which is called by Shah, which literally means where it's like the Portuguese equivalent of. But of course, in Portuguese Baisha Really. Interesting. Story behind how the city evolved physically how it was planned out. I don't know if anyone knows this but in seventeen fifty, five Lisbon suffered I really powerful. And devastating earthquake which paves the way for what was described as a despotic but enlightened I minister to put his rationalist stamp on the heart of the city? So Baisha is a grid of streets which leads down to the to the river. Many of you might have seen or visited or no off this very, very majestic square called Presa do comercio. So this area by shirt I suppose you could say is Lisbon's traditional downtown gives a flavor of how things were done in the days before shopping malls and it's actually parts for are still quite run down. There are a lot of derelict buildings, lots of buildings I've noticed walking around in in the process of being gentrified have been. Brought up and been gentrified into apartments. Shops office buildings, but it still amazes me the such. A sensual neighborhood still has a vast areas of it in quite bad repair actually, and in fact, you can tell by some of the names in in the Baisha neighborhood, you've called Rua Deo, for example, which is Gold Street. You've got those Taos, which is Shoemaker Street you've got.

Questions about life here in Spain living in Spain moving here. My Advice, my suggestions, recommendations, all sorts of things, and thank you to all of you who did to send me three or questions. They were all really really good questions. Okay. So let's get into traveling to Lisbon just a note to say during these times of covid nineteen we didn't have any problems. As I mentioned earlier, the anything we noticed was the while I was going to say we're the airports particularly quiet yet, but a has airport Madrid was very empty. When we flew flew in the afternoon, very few flights departing and arriving in Madrid, and in terms of safety measures I mean hand jail masks, all the time The did do a little temperature tests on us. When we arrived in Lisbon, we have to wear masks on the plane all the time. Of course, the plane was actually quite busy There were very few empty seats. So you were sitting you know I think we flew out. On a small plane regional play in which was just two seats, the island, then two seats but there were no gaps everyone was sitting packed in next to each other. But when we arrived in Lisbon, we didn't notice any other kind of You know extreme safety measures that were happening. We had to fill in a form on the plane where we had to give details or personal details home address in Spain, the address that we. Were staying in in Lisbon, those kinds of things and the forms were collected on arrival at the airport, and then we just breezed straight through that was it so nothing else the interesting thing though when we flew from Lisbon to data analysis data relies heavily on tourism for its for its imports economy and they have very few cases of covid nineteen or at least they have heart very few cases of covid nineteen on the island of. Madeira and to keep it that way what they're doing their on arrival. They make you do a covid nineteen test to see if you have the virus not free of charge carried out in a very efficient way we at about nine pm in data after Euclid Securitate, you will funneled through into a line and we have to wait about twenty minutes I think and they gave us a Kobe nineteen that gave us the nose swab and throat swab test. took out details. Again, we have to provide are on would address, which was a friend Betty who he was staying within data I'm what they did was they said to us you will receive your results within the next twelve to twenty-four hours. So we had the test at nine PM at the airport the next morning. At nine. Am they emailed us with the results incredibly quick. We both tested negative I'm pleased to say. I heard the people who test positive. They what happens is they come and collect you from your accommodation whether you've arranged to stay and they escort you off to a hotel in the hills where they force you to do quarantine. Basically, my impression of it was it was very well organized, very efficient on the fact that it was free as well. A Free Cova test. Anyway, I don't really WanNa talk about covid nineteen although the moment of recording this episode on the twentieth of August it seems at the moment that the Kobe cases in Spain in general. Are On the rise again I'm going to have myself over to me talking to you from Lisburn at the top of this beautiful fortress, and well what they call middle viewpoint at the Castel Day, sow shortage in center of Lisbon.

How ever I thought we'd have a little change in this episode I'm taking you to Portugal in this episode I'm going to be talking about a trip that Carina and myself made a few weeks back for Summer Holidays to the Portuguese capital of Lisbon or Elizabeth. And then an on were trip to the Portuguese or Thomas Island of misfit. Now. I. Don't normally do this. In fact I've never done this before I've never done an episode. It's not about Spain think no I don't think I have Why am I? Why am I talking about Portugal in a podcast which is about Spain well good question. My kind of thinking behind it was that Lisbon specifically, not so much data but certainly, Lisbon is a viable and well worthwhile signed trip from Spain, if you're spending any. Any sort of long amount of time on the Peninsula Lisbon is A viable site trip and well worth it at least for a long weekend and if you think about it geographically Lisbon while from Madrid where I'm speaking to you from. Lisbon is more or less. The same distance from Madrid as the loan is from Madrid really Madrid is slap bang in the middle almost in the geographical center of Spain. And when you look on the map, actually you know Madrid is almost equidistant between. Barcelona and Lisbon for this reason I thought well, why not it will be interesting to make change talk to you guys the Spain lovers abound about Lisbon and the end of the episode I'm going to talk a bit about Madida as well. Corina on me had some holidays booked to go to Medina Luckily. during this complicated time of covid nineteen, we were still able to make that trip of flights were not cancelled. We didn't have any kind of logistical problems at all actually. When we went to book the trip actually, our plan for the trip was actually go directly to data. The reason being is that we have a a a good friend who's from data and who lives there who we actually met back in the UK about five or six years ago, and she moved back to Madeira and I don't know for the last two probably three years we've been meaning to make a trip. To. Med to Madeira to visit her. But the flights have always been super super super expensive. Now, I don't know if it's because of covid nineteen, but we managed to find flights to that from Madrid for about one hundred, fifty euros return each how ever when we went to book, we realized that there are no direct flights to data from from Madrid certainly I don't know if there are many other parts of Spain. But there are no. Direct flights to Madeira. The only way to get there flying is to go via. Lisbon. Do a little a scholar as they say in Spanish stopover. In, Lisbon connect through Lisbon and then take what is basically an internal flight to Medina. So we went to break. We thought well, you know if we're going through Lisbon, why don't we turn that into a little city break as well? So we did and we ended up spending I. Think Two nights only in Lisbon to break up the trip and also to soak the science of Lisbon as well. the curious thing about Portuguese cousins. Next door is that it's actually very difficult in terms of train travel at least to take a train directly. From Spain across into Portugal, there is kind of overnight sleeper train which takes you from Madrid up into Galaxia Thea, and then goes back down via Porto. I think a really long quite expensive journey actually, and it's really curious thing that transport connections between Spain and Portugal I'm not great and so the most viable way to get to Lisbon is to fly but don't worry because the flights a usually fairly reasonably priced from Madrid to Lisbon and the flight is is nothing it's a short hop about forty five minutes to one hour flying time from Madrid to Lisbon. Literally. Hop Over Extra Madeira and the interior of Portugal down to Lisbon. So that's what I thought I would do in this episode guys are going to run through what we saw in. Lisburn and I'm going to give you my recommendations for things to visit my observations definitely going to be talking about food and drink in in Lisbon as well and a bit later in this episode, all do a little roundup of of data as well for anyone who's interested possibly in the island of Madeira which was absolutely breathtakingly stunningly beautiful, I? Mean really magical island just before we head off to Lisbon. Just like to say a big thank you to new when in Spain patron. So a big growth. Yes to Adrian. Silvis Burke. Big. Thank you to Ben Liam. Big. Thank you to cody hoover and also must say a big. Thank you to existing when in Spain patrons who have very very kindly decided to increase their monthly pledges.

"Rick Steves with borders temporarily closing countless travel. Dreams are now on hold. But I know that we'll get through this crisis and when we do it'll be more important than ever to venture out into our world so for now. Let's enjoy these virtual adventures through the Radio. And when we're able again let's promise to keep on traveling if you like to explore historic cities with funkier festive neighborhoods. We've got to for you to choose from in the hour ahead. Tour guides from Portugal will help us navigate the street life and the tangle of cobbled lanes and lookouts and their capital as we get acquainted with the neighborhoods of Lisbon and an architecture critic finds a lot to like faded charisma of Buenos Aires. But I writer Wendy. Simmons returns to travel with Rick. Steves to help us look forward to our next long airplane flight in coach as a photographer and contributor to Huffington Post. Wendy's traveled a lot so far she's been to eighty five countries. She doesn't read the overseas flights at all in fact she joins us now with her tips on enjoying your next flight. Wendy thanks for being here. Sorry my so you write that long haul. Flights can be more fun than short ones. That's pretty good trick house. Oh I travel all the time as you said and I've come to really not lake. Short flights feel long only. They're not so I can't get anything done and instead you know. I look at long haul flights as uninterrupted me. Time just ten twelve hours of time where? I don't have any guilt that I should be doing something else and instead I can use the time to do all the things I wanna do that. I never seem to have time for one on the so that takes a little bit of intention and thinking ahead. I do the same thing when I'm planning a trip to Europe and I know my departures a week out. I've actually got a little list of things I'm going to do during the flight because I will get hours of me time. What are some of your meantime activities that make that flight actually blessing? Well it can be fun stuff and it can also be stuff that I just have to get taken care of that. I never have time to do so. For example it's a great time. I listened to a lot of music. I love music and I am always frustrated. That can't find the song I feel like listening to her playlist and that type of thing so it's a great time to clean out my tunes library and get rid of music. I don't like or create playlists. It's a great time to go through my email inbox and just finally cleared out. You don't have to be online to do that. Those things take a long time in our lives are so busy and never get render so tedious and who wants to do that on weekends. You know for me. A related thing would be Hall the piles of photos. I've got packed into my iphone. You can just go through in down. It's actually it's the perfect time to do all the stuff you don't WanNa waste time doing during the weekend or at night. Also you can just do something that you would normally invest time in other ways. Absolutely you know I'll to things like if I've always wanted to read about the history of someplace or I've been wanting to learn a few key phrases in the language of whatever country I'm going to you know that's the perfect time to catch up on movies or season of television shows all season of whatever or watch a movie that you wouldn't have exactly those are the exactly the kind of thing so it's really about mindset or a movie that your partner wouldn't WanNa see with you exactly are the ones you'd be so embarrassed ask anyone to watch with you. If you're anywhere else I love to walk up and down the aisle and just look at the way. People are spending their time and see how they're really getting into all that trash on the screen. I mean I've watched some of the most embarrassing movies ever on airplanes humiliated if anyone knew but it's the perfect time and I think you know people go onto airplanes dreading it and if you just you know if you make a few simple changes and you bring a neck pillow and you dress in layers and you take your shoes off and you have a glass of wine and you sort of look at the airplane is your you know your personal private space albeit. It's not comfortable but it's not permanent. I know people that would they would travel less in order to go first class and makes no sense that ultimately. I don't know how much more I think you'd pay five or six hundred dollars more one hundred dollars hour or something at least just sit in first class and just makes no sense to me because what you can do is you can creatively work to make your coach seat. Feel a little more elegant. And there's ways that I always say I would rather sit in coach with my noise reduction headphones than to sit business without them because the rumble of the airplane is. It's just exhausting to me and I can have my own little cone of silence and when I put my headphones on nobody talks to me and I do have that meantime I remember this interview that the CEO of Spirit Airlines did one time after a poll came out ranking them dead last in customer service and seat size and space and all these other statistics and he basically said listen. We get you from place to place really cheap. You can spend the money where you're going and I thought you know what a brilliant response and that's how I look at it. The airplane isn't part of the vacation. It's to get me to the big Russian affordably. Say money to it up and uncomfortable for thirteen hours so I have an extra thousand dollars when I get wherever it is that I'm
