Lisbon under Covid-19 Lockdown


Memories of Lockdown 2020.


Drone Video of the Week finalist ArturCarvalho brings us this brilliant video from Lisbon during one of the strangest times in the long history of the great Portuguese capital city: during the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020.  As Spain became one of countries worst hit by the deadly virus, its neighbor Portugal adopted increasingly stringent social distancing measures to combat its spread.  The result is what you will see in the video - public spaces nearly emptied of people and ordinarily busy streets appearing virtually deserted.  

The Vasco de Game Bridge


The bridge and the sun rise.

Carlos Pin...

Check out this fantastic drone video of one of the wonders of modern Portugal, compliments of contributor Carlos Pinota.  It's the Vasco de Gama Bridge, which spans a much wider part of the Tagus estuary than Lisbon's first span, the 25 de Abril Bridge. Opened in 1998, it's one of the longest bridge in Europe: 12.3 km (7.7 mi.) end-to-end.  It's an engineering marvel for another reason, too: it's built to withstand an earthquake up to 5x bigger than the monster which nearly destroyed the city in 1755.

25 de Abril Bridge and More

Contributor Martigen created this marvelous drone video of the Portuguese capital city Lisbon.  It opens with a magnificent shot of Praça do Comércio on the Tagus River.  The square was built on the ruins of the Ribeira Palace, the great Portuguese royal palace.  The palace along with  much of Lisbon was destroyed in one of history's greatest natural disasters: the 1755 earthquake, which is estimated to have registered up to 9.0 on the Richter Scale, leveled much of the city, and killed up to 100,000 people.

Lisbon, Portugal is known for its long and rich history but this aerial film explores the city's modern development. Flying DJI Phantom 3 Pro and Inspire 1 drones, creator flyingvisions illustrates the beauty of a vibrant bustling metropolitan area.  Most of the video was shot in the city's Parque das Nações district.  This is is the area a bit upstream from central Portugal, just south of the Vasco de Gama Bridge.  It's known for its beautiful parks and large marina on the Tagus estuary.  

Lisbon by Mavic Mini 2


A luz de Lisboa - DJI Mini 2 Cinesmooth (The light of Lisbon)


AirVuz contributor and pilot goncaloafranco used a DJI Mavic Mini 2 to create this excellent aerial video of the great city of Lisbon, Portugal.  The video opens with a nice shot of the Vasco de Gama Bridge, which spans the Tagus River and is the longest bridge in the European Union as of 2021.  Then it's on to Commerce Square (Praça do Comércio), followed by Rossio Square.  Other notable locations include the Campo Pequeno Bullring at the 1:11 mark, the Marquis of Pombal Square (1:40), São Jorge Castle (2:00), and more.  

Belém Tower


Belem Tower


The Fort of St. Vincent (Belém Tower) lies in the Tagus River in Lisbon.  It was built in the early 16th century to fortify the Portuguese capital city's defenses against a seaborn invasion.  However, despite being later strengthened, the tower surrendered to Spanish forces after just a few hours of battle.  It was subsequently used for a prison.  After falling into a state of disrepair, the tower was fully renovated in the 1990's.  It is now listed as one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal.

Fort of São Lourenço


Fort of São Lourenço do Bugio


Throughout its history (including a time as one of the world's most important cities), Portugal's capital city Lisbon has been vulnerable to seaborne invasion.  To cover the approaches to the city from the Atlantic Ocean, various fortresses have been built in the Tagus River estuary to protect the city from such an eventuality.  In this video by contributor Flyingbydaniel, you'll get a bird's eye look at one of these forts: Fort of São Lourenço. Built in the 16th-17th centuries, it now functions as a lighthouse.

Lisbon's Empty Streets During Coronavirus (Covid-19)


Life in the great capital city of Lisbon, Portugal came to a virtual standstill during the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020.    In this drone video by flymydr8ne, you'll get an aerial tour of the nearly empty streets of the great capital city of Lisbon.  Featured locations include the Marquês de Pombal roundabout, Praça do Comércio, Rossio, Restauradores, Campo das Cebolas, Sé, Castelo de São Jorge, Avenida da Liberdade and Avenida Fontes Pereira de Melo.

Aerial Views of Almada


Portugal from Above: Almada - Lisbon


Contributor RickKengan used a DJI Phantom 3 drone to create this beautiful aerial capture of Almada, Portugal. Almada sits across the Tagus River from the capital Lisbon, with which its relationship resembles the relationship between San Francisco and Oakland, California: the two cities are connected by a bridge of fairly recent vintage.   In the case of Almada, the connection was provided through the 25 de Abril Bridge, which opened for auto traffic in 1966 and is one of the most important pieces of Portuguese infrastructure.  

Commerce Square under Covid-19 Lockdown


D. José I Statue in Praça do Comercio, Downtown Lisbon


The statue of King Jose I in Lisbon's Commerce Square (Praça do Comércio) is an important landmark in the Portuguese capital city.  The complex was built in the late 1700's on the ruins of the Royal (Ribeira) Palace, which was famously destroyed in the great 1755 Lisbon Earthquake.  One of Portugal's most popular tourist destinations, it sat virtually empty during the worldwide novel coronavirus pandemic in the Spring of 2020, as seen in this drone video by AirVuz contributor flymydr8ne.  

Monument to Discoveries and Belem Tower


Aerial from Monument to the Discoveries to the Bélem Tower...[Lisbon]


Contributor Flyingbydaniel used a DJI Mavic Pro 2 to aerially film two of the top spots in Lisbon related to Portugal's great Age of Discovery, when the tiny nation assembled one of the world's largest empires.  The first is the Monument to the Discoveries on the northern bank of the Tagus River, the departure point for many of the country's great voyages in the 15th-16th centuries.  The second is Belém Tower, a fortress in the Tagus River built to protect the city from predatory raids by jealous rivals.   



Cacilhas - Lisboa, Portugal (drone video) | DearDrone (DJI MAVIC 2018)


The Portuguese capital city of Lisbon is closely tied to the city of Almada, which sits on the far (south) side of the River Tagus, over the 25 de Abril Bridge.   The south bank city which lies closest to Lisbon by boat though is actually Cacilhas.  This small town occupies the eastern tip of the strip of land which narrows the Tagus before it ends its journey to the Atlantic; it's directly east of Almada.  Check out this beautiful little town from above in this drone video by contributor deardrone.

Lisbon's Church of the Sacred Heart


Aerial of Basílica da Estrela, Lisbon - Portugal


Here's a great aerial view of one of the more well-known churches of Lisbon, Portugal, compliments of contributor and drone pilot flyingbydaniel.  It's the Royal Basilica and Convent of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus (Basilica Estrela), and it's located on the Ave. Infante Santa, just west of the São Bento Palace.  Completed in the late 18th century, its design reflects a blend of baroque and neoclassical styles.  It was the world's first church dedicated to the Church of the Sacred Heart devotion.

Portugal's Pantheon


Aerial of Church of Santa Engrácia, Lisbon - Portugal


Seen in this drone video by flyingbydaniel, the Church of Santa Engrácia in Lisbon, Portugal is actually no longer a church.  Construction on the Baroque masterpiece began in the late 17th century, and (incredibly) wasn't completed until the middle of the 20th.  In the mean time, its function changed to being the Pantheon of Portugal.  Located in the Alfama District, the landmark is the burial site for many of the most famous Portuguese, including numerous Presidents, writers, artists, and other leading figures.  

Commerce Square and 25 Abril Bridge


Aerial Sunset over Tejo River, Lisbon - Portugal


Like so many of the world's most historically important cities, Lisbon, Portugal is a river town.  It sits near the mouth of the Tagus, one of the most important waterways on the Iberian Peninsula.  In this drone video by flyingbydanuel, you'll get a bird's eye view of two of the best sights along the river: (1) the Praça do Comércio, the great square on the site of the Royal Palace which was destroyed in the 1755 earthquake; and (2) the 25 de Abril Bridge, which was completed in the 1960's and spans the river to Almada.

Marquis of Pombal Square


Aerial of Marquês de Pombal, Lisbon - Portugal


Here's a nice aerial view of an important traffic roundabout and monument in the Portuguese capital city of Lisbon, compliments of flyingbydaniel.  The roundabout is called Marquis of Pombal Square, and it connects several of the cities most important thoroughfares.  The statue in the middle of the roundabout, from which it derives its name, is of Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, 1st Marquis of Pombal, who was a Prime Minister of Portugal during and for two decades following the great earthquake of 1755.

Estádio da Luz


Sunset over Estádio da Luz, Lisbon - Portugal


Check out this drone video of Portugal's biggest football (soccer) stadium, compliments of flyingbydaniel: the Estádio da Luz in Lisbon.  It's the home of the S.L. Benfica club, which competes in the top-flight Primeira Liga league. The stadium opened in 2003, replacing an older facility of the same name.  The stadium seats just under 65k fans, putting it amongst the top 25 in Europe.  In a survey conducted by the French sporting publication in 2014, it was voted as Europe's most beautiful stadium.  

Lisbon's Christ the King Statue

The Tagus River Waterfront


Horrible LIsbon by the river


Contributor ArturCarvalo used a DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone to create this aerial video of the Tagus River waterfront of Lisbon, Portugal.  The great city is in large part defined by its relationship to the river, which empties into the Atlantic just west of the city and is one of the most important waterways on the Iberian Peninsula.  The video includes some excellent footage of one of the newest additions to the waterfront: the Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, otherwise known as the MAAT.  

Jerónimos Monastery


Monastery of Jerónimos - Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, Lisbon


Jerónimos Monastery is one of the most well-known sites in the Portuguese capital city of Lisbon.  It is situated across the street from Empire Square (Praça do Império), just north of the Tagus River.  Dating to the late 15th century, the monastery was substantially altered in the late 1800's to take on its current Late Gothic architectural style.  Seen here in this excellent drone video by sphereview, the monastery complex has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1983.

The Myriad by SANA Hotel


Aerial 4K Myriad by Sana Hotels in Lisbon Portugal

Fort of São Julião da Barra

Drone -Cas...

During the 16th century, the then-mighty Kingdom of Portugal constructed a series of fortresses along the banks of the Tagus River estuary to protect its capital city Lisbon from its main vulnerability - seaborne invasion.  The most important of these was the Fort of São Julião da Barra, which is located on a promontory on the northern bank of the river's final outlet.  AirVuz contributor and pilot DroneCascais used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create a spectacular bird's eye view great fort, which was completed in 1568.

Commerce Square's Rua Agusta Arch


Arch of Triumph in Downtown Lisbon, Portugal


Built on the ruins of the Rebeira Palace which was destroyed in the great Lisbon Earthquake of 1755, Commerce Square (Praça do Comércio) is one of the busiest spots in Portugal.  During the national near-shutdown to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, AirVuz contributor and drone pilot flymydr8ne managed to record a surreal scene of the great square virtually empty .  The video was shot from the square's Rua Augusta Arch which commemorates the many tens of thousands who perished in the great 18th century disaster.  

Fort Caxias


Forte de Caxias


Portugal's Fort of São Bruno is one of a series of fortifications erected during the 17th century to protect Lisbon from seaborne invasion.  The fortress is situated in the town of Caxias, just south of the mouth of the Tagus River estuary on which Lisbon is situated.  Seen here in this drone video by Timeacrth, The star-shaped structure became operational in 1649.  Despite being used for target practice into the 19th century, the guns of São Bruno were never fired in anger, and the anticipated invasion from Spain never materialized.  

Lisbon's Famous Bridge and Statue

While Lisbon is many centuries old, two of its most well-known landmarks are of much more recent vintage.  Situated adjacent to one another, together they are probably the most well-recognized site in the great Portuguese capital city: the 25th of April (25 de Abril) Bridge over the Tagus River, which was completed in 1966, and the Christ the King (Cristo del Rey) statue near its southern terminus, which dates to 1959.  You can see them both as they shimmer in the fog in this beautiful drone video by AirVuz contributor and pilot Aldo.
