I do love the old, old squares and cities! Having been born/living in such a relatively young country, I'm always fascinated by the cities in Europe and their history. Being able to see and visit places like this was one of the very best things about living and traveling in Europe during the three years that I lived in Germany and Spain! Thanks for the memories, JM! Have a great weekend!

For some reason it looks quite Italian to me...
God bless you!

Nice pictures, and i just realized our island here in the country called Guimaras, could be named during the Spanish period, who might have been missing their own place of the same name!

Once again Lisbon captures your heart. So much history seems to have happened there!

Great contrast between romanesque and gothic architecture and the modern tables and chairs.
