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, devastated the city and killed up to 100,000 people.

Jorge Novo Murias used a drone to create this epic bird's eye view of of Portugal's Vasco de Gama Bridge.  The highly complex span was completed in 1998 in connection with Expo 1998, the celebration of the 500th anniversary of Portuguese explorer Vasco de Gama's epic voyage to India.  The cable-stayed bridge, which is the second longest in Europe, spans 12.3 km (7.3 mi) over the Tagus river and is now a critical part of metropolitan Lisbon's infrastructure.

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.

Throughout its history (including a time as one of the world's most important cities), Portugal's Lisbon has been vulnerable to seaborne invasion.  To cover the approaches to the city from the sea, 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.
