Step inside the MAGIC BUS!

Well, I might have stepped inside to see what was on offer in Lisbon’s Magic Bus independent record shop but it was closed for the day.

I did get a picture of its magical door though and a view of the street it’s in.

The shop is situated in Calçada do Duque, one of the many steep winding streets in Lisbon’s Bairro Alta district.

You can see it halfway up the street on the lefthand side:

Beautiful shots, Helen. When I was in Lisbon, I wanted to climb every street of steps I came across. After the first two I gave up, there were so many. I loved it there, we stayed in an apartment in the old part of the city, near George’s Castle.

    Thanks for your comments, Jean. We wandered around the Alfama district below the castle.Fascinating! We stayed in downtown Lisbon Rossio Square. What a city!!!!

      I loved Lisbon, Helen. I’m definitely going to take another trip there in the future.

Beautiful photos. Do they call these steps a street? That would be unusual to me.

    Oh yes they’re streets. Lisbon is built on seven hills ( like Rome though Lisbon’s are smaller) so there are many many streets like this. Thanks for visiting, Charles.

I'm always pleased to read comments.....
