Lisbon, Lisbon - the purple city

Lisbon – the purple city

In May Lisbon becomes a city bathed in purple thanks to the jacaranda trees being in bloom. They can be seen on the avenues and in the parks and small squares all over the city. They are a true feast for the eyes and really lift the spirits as you walk around.
