The seven hills of Lisbon in paintings

Known as the city of seven hills, the capital of Portugal is surrounded by seven magnificent viewpoints: São Jorge, São Vicente, São Roque, Graça, Santa Catarina, Chagas, and Sant’Ana. In this watercolor work, Fabrice Moireau portrays these eminences crowned with castles or churches, its plains and hills, its network of steep alleys, and its colorful little houses. Under the delicate stroke of his brush, Lisbon comes to life before our amazed eyes.
