    Thanks for the memories — lots of the same scenes we saw in Lisbon in 2015 and 2017 (would love to return).

    And you’re right, the cruise ships tying up along the Tagus have gotten a whole lot larger than what you saw in 2006 (just emailed you one of our photos from October 2015).

    The Inquisition conducted tortures and executions, including the auto-da-fé, on the Praça de Rossio.
