The Lady of the Hill stands in her illuminated belvedere as the sun descends on Lisbon, Portugal, below. This vantage, called Miradouro da Nossa Senhora do Monte, is the highest of the seven peaks that nestle Lisbon. Built by seafarers where the Tagus River empties into the Atlantic Ocean, Lisbon was once Europe's wealthiest capital and the center of world exploration.
