LISBON: Seven Hills , monochrome, B&W,

LISBON: A City of Seven Hills.

Lisbon, capital city of Portugal, is built on seven hills.

(I was surprised to learn that Rome isn’t the only European capital city  with this claim to fame.)

Seven hills in a fairly compact city means steep streets. Lots of steep streets!

There seemed to be three levels of “steepness”:

Those with a manageable gradient had pavements; the next level up had steps, whilst the steepest of all had traditional wooden funiculars.
