Photographer's Note

There is something in Lisbon that calls our attention from the first moment, the network of effective streetcars.
The network is composed by five routes and 58 streetcars, of which 40 are traditional streetcars. The traditional streetcars cross the streets of the historical zone of the city, they are small, nostalgic and precious for the photos.
The most famous is the number 28, is the whole institution in Lisbon. A wooden streetcar that moves us to another epoch, which bell not stopping of clattering in order to alert the absent-minded pedestrians who occupy the narrow streets for which it passes.
From the Castle of San Jorge up to the Bairro Alto, its route of almost ten kilometers allows to enjoy the most picturesque neighborhoods: Graça, Mouraria, Alfama, Baixa, Chiado, Madragoa and Bairro Alto. Thousands of tourists use it daily.

In this photo taken in the stop of the streetcar number 28 that leads to the Castelo de São Jorge, I tried to catch the strong graphical effect of the cables on the sky, as well as the beautiful architecture of Alfama's neighborhood. In this point the Miradouro das Portas do Sol is placed, with a few wonderful views on the Tagus.

In the WS you can see one of the streetcars in the stop.

Hay algo en Lisboa que llama nuestra atención desde el primer momento, la red de eficaces tranvías.
La red está compuesta por cinco rutas y 58 tranvías, de los cuales 40 son tranvías tradicionales. Los tranvías tradicionales recorren las calles de la zona histórica de la ciudad, son pequeños, nostálgicos y preciosos para las fotos.
El más famoso es el número 28, es toda una institución en Lisboa. Un tranvía de madera que nos traslada a otra época cuya campana no para de repiquetear para alertar a los peatones despistados que ocupan las estrechas calles por las que transcurre.
Desde el Castillo de San Jorge hasta el Bairro Alto, su ruta de casi diez kilómetros permite disfrutar de los barrios más pintorescos: Graça, Mouraria, Alfama, Baixa, Chiado, Madragoa y Bairro Alto. Miles de turistas lo utilizan a diario.

En esta foto, tomada en la parada del tranvía número 28 que da acceso al Castelo de São Jorge, intenté captar el fuerte efecto gráfico de los cables sobre el cielo, así como la bella arquitectura del barrio de Alfama. En este punto está situado el Miradouro das Portas do Sol, con unas maravillosas vistas sobre el Tajo.

En el WS podéis ver uno de los tranvías en la parada.
