Lisbon, Portugal is truly one of the best travel destinations in the world to capture some compelling street photography shots.
There is art everywhere! And the architecture is mind-blowing, from the Moorish-era tiles that lend texture and rustic sophistication to every façade, to the super-sleek contemporary architecture that reveals a complex cultural aesthetic.
And the people, well, there are so many characters on the streets of Lisbon it’s a treat to just walk about and observe. And I like to observe with my camera in hand or in front of my eye.
Over the five weeks I spent in Lisbon I captured hundreds of street photos. Trying to narrow them down to a handful to share was a task.
Here are the Lisbon street photography shots that made the cut. I haven’t captioned them because I hope the pictures simply tell the stories that I saw.

That’s It For Lisbon!
Portugal stole my heart… the first time I visited in 2016 and each time I visit. There’s just something about it that you can’t really capture in words. I hope the Lisbon street photos I’ve shared help you see what I feel when I’m there.

Ah Lisbon…brings back such lovely memories…thanks for sharing
It does conjure up so many great memories for me too. Thanks for viewing!
Love all of them, Barb. One of my favourite cities. Can’t wait to visit again. Off to a good start! Looking forward to Croatia photos.
We sure did have fun last time! I know I will be back again.
Beautiful shots Barb! I especially like the dichotomy of the seventh shot down, between the two women and the generations that separate them. Plus the lighting is so dramatic!
To answer your question—I definitely feel moved, it feels like I was there! ?
Gavin, I am so glad you saw and felt what I did in that photo! It was the story of the generations, both standing waiting for… something… that stopped me dead in my tracks and then the light just opened up for me. It’s those moments that “click” that make us keep going, right? Thanks so much for your comments.
Gorgeous photos. I remember how narrow and busy the streets are. And how you can lose elevation quickly! We had delicious food there – octopus and asparagus and squid – yum! Enjoy Croatia. I can’t wait to see your new photos.
Thanks Maggie! Oh yes those busy, narrow and STEEP streets. Good thing, though, because all of the walking sort of kept the extra pounds at bay after all the eating and drinking we did. 🙂
Beautiful! I look forward to Croatia
Hello and thank-you Roberta! I am so behind on my photography work but I’m getting there… I just love Croatia and will share some new pix soon!
