'Jutting out onto the Rio Tejo, this World Heritage–listed fortress epitomises the Age of Discoveries. Francisco de Arruda designed the pearly-grey chess piece in 1515 to defend Lisbon’s harbour and nowhere else is the lure of the Atlantic more powerful. The Manueline show-off flaunts filigree stonework, meringue-like cupolas and – just below the western tower – a stone rhinoceros. The ungulate depicts the one Manuel I sent Pope Leo X in 1515, which inspired Du¨rer’s famous woodcut. Crowds can be intense on weekends (especially Sunday) – a warning to claustrophobes.' @raubontheroad #lpinstatakeover

#LonelyPlanet Destination Editor, @megoizzy1, recently snapped this shot at the Cimetiere du Père Lachaise (Père Lachaise Cemetery) in Paris. It is the world’s most visited cemetery and a stroll through its 44 hectares is akin to exploring a verdant sculpture garden. Opened in 1804, it was intended for Parisians, a response to local neighbourhood graveyards being full. It was ground-breaking for Parisians to be buried outside the quartier in which they lived. Some of the notable people laid to rest here include Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, Chopin and Monsieur Noir. #lp #travel
