Photographs of Portugal

Couple of fotos from the place. IIRC, yes; more the ambiance than anything else. Food was good (I’m sure it’s possible to get bad food in Portugal, but I’ve yet to be able to do so).

An excellent collection of photographs with the history of the locations.
Not sure if the Portoenses will appreciate it being called Oporto

Images of the beautiful coastline in Arrábida Natural Park, Setúbal, on a perfect winter day (Dec 28). The temperature was nice enough for some people to sunbathe in their summer beachwear.

Bonus points for this slightly creepy chapel in the cave:

I have to assume they must have been paid to do so by the Portuguese travel industry to promote winter-time travel hehe!
Happy New Year

Well worth a visit when in Porto. Near to the Torre dos Clérigos and the shot of the Sé do Porto was taken from the third floor. An amazing collection of photographic equipment going way back. I do believe the building was previously a prison but much nicer now.

Hah, could be! They probably wouldn’t be able to do so right now - it’s been pretty cold :slight_smile: Happy 2020.

Nice photos, by the way. I’ve never walked into it, but it’s hard not to notice that building when walking past it.

A few photos in Piódão, deep in central Portugal…a harrowing drive, but this incredible historic town constructed of schist and slate is worth a visit!

Love 4 All
Given our present worrying times when we must spread some love and care and sharing,
I recalled capturing this piece of street art taken while in Porto.
