Hi..I saw on DM's blog that you were posting photos of lisbon..so here I am...having a look!..and I can confirm that you are right...it is beautiful!..so what is the blue building famous for?

I have no idea, what's it famous for? Chiado is in front, straight ahead. There's a church on the side. There's a bookstore on the blue building.

Violet said...

I know! Turns out that bookstore (Bertrand)
is 120 years old. The oldest of all Bertrand bookstores.

Devil Mood said...

Really? I didn't know what it was, only that I recognized it from seeing it often.

Violet said...

Yes. that's what my boyfriend informed me. He says every Bertrand has a picture of it.

I went inside it today and took some pictures, and bought a guide to california :)

It looks and smells 120 years old.
