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.

Setúbal is a medium-sized port city on the estuary of the Sado River, in the Greater Lisbon region of Portugal.  Situated a bit to the south of the city of Lisbon, its calm waters stand in stark contrast to the much rougher Atlantic waters of the cities along the country's Atlantic coast.  The city was once the center of Portugal's fishing industry, one of the largest in the world at one point.  Jorge Novo Murias used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create a bird's eye view of the waterfront of Setúbal at sunset.

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.

One of the reasons why the Atlantic Ocean coastline of Portugal has become such a big attraction is the visually compelling interplay between the coast's cliffs and its beaches.  In some spots, the spectacular rocky cliffs plunge straight down to the ocean, in others they sit behind a protected beach, and in still others they are absent entirely.  You can see this phenomenon for yourself in this drone video by VGVideos.  It was shot around Cascais and Estoril, on the so-called Portuguese Riviera just west of Lisbon.

Cabo Espichel is a prominent peninsula on Portugal's Atlantic Ocean coastline.  It's part of the municipality of Sesimbra in the Setúbal District south of Lisbon.  The region around the cape is culturally distinct, in part due to the limited Roman penetration that occurred here compared to most of the rest of Portugal.  Seen here in this drone video by content creator and pilot HJMRAPOSO, the cape is home to an important lighthouse.  The lighthouse was constructed in 1790 on the site of an old hermitage.

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.
