Photographer's Note

One more picture taken from the Estação do Oriente, modern train station in Parque das Nações in Lisbon. This time a picture taken in a daylight and off the centre to allow a glimpse towards one of two Lisbon iconic towers (Torres São Rafael/São Gabriel). Below I copied some information about the building which you see in the centre from the Portuguese Wikipedia:

Torres São Rafael/São Gabriel are two emblematic luxury housing developments located in Lisbon; Portugal, in Parque das Nações (site of the 1998 World Exhibition), flanking the Vasco da Gama shopping centre. Both at 110m high, they are the tallest residential buildings in the country, having become an icon of Lisbon's skyline. Its inspiration came from the caravels used by the Portuguese at the time of the Discoveries, alluding to the country's history, keeping in line with the ideology of the place where they are built (Expo 98).
