English: The oldest knoun view of Lisbon (circa 1500-1510). This miniature is from the Cronicle of Afonso I of Portugal Português: Vista panorâmica de Lisboa conhecida mais antiga, datando de 1500-1510. É uma iluminura da Crónica de Dom Afonso Henriques. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(I like it!  All the clue words were jumbled really nicely, especially “utopia” and “piglet”.  “Utopia” gave me the most trouble.  I had to back into it.  I was in a bit of a rush when I was doing this.  It turns out that “grove” is a new word.  Looks like ralis95 has a little work to do.  The answer letter layout was beautifully cryptic.  Nothing given away.  The cartoon really helped make the pun.  I hope my fellow Jumblers are up on their geography, because that was necessary in solving this one.  Lots of fun, today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
