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.

In this video, top contributor Justin Poore used a drone to give us an unforgettable look at the amazing city of Lisbon, Portugal.  The video captures many of the top sights in the Portuguese capital, including an epic shot of its iconic 25 de Abril Bridge at around the 1:40 mark.  The red-colored bridge spanning the Tagus River between Lisbon and Almada has been a filming location for numerous movies, notably the 1969 James Bond movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service, the seventh movie in the series.

For a two minute aerial tour/VLOG of the great Portuguese city of Lisbon, it's tough to beat this one by Rein Martens.  It combines ground footage, drone footage, and some very skillful editing to give you a feel for this amazing city on the western fringe of Europe.  The video contains bird's eye views of Commerce Square in the heart of the city, the amazing Vasco de Gama Bridge over the Tagus River, and the Atlantic coast just west of the city.

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.

Check out this fantastic drone video of one of the wonders of modern Portugal, compliments of contributor flymydr8ne.  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 the second 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.

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.

Prepare to be blown away by this incredible drone video of the great Portuguese city of Lisbon, compliments of contributor p3c0.  The video leads off with some epic overhead footage of the Christ the King (Santuário de Cristo Rei) monument overlooking the city, its most recognized landmark and one of the most well known statues in the world.  Completed in 1959, it was inspired by a similar statue in Rio de Janeiro and was built to express national gratitude for avoiding the horrors of World War II.

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.

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.  DroneCascais used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create a spectacular bird's eye view great fort, which was completed in 1568.

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.

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.

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.

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.  Much of the video's footage is of one of the newest additions to the waterfront: the Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, otherwise known as the MAAT.  Opened in 2016, it's located in the Belém District.
