lisboa: galerias romanas

Portugal, Lisboa, Lisbon, Baixa, galerias romanas

After years of coming to Lisboa, at long last I’ve been able to see what I consider one of the city’s “holy grail” sites: Roman galleries buried underneath the modern-day Baixa. They are so difficult to visit because since the 1980s, the city government only opens them once or twice per year.
