Portugal Day 1 in Pictures

What we ate.

What we drank.

What we saw.

The entire inside of this chapel was covered with human bones.

Roman Temple ruins.

Cathedral.

We saw lots more, but my internet connection is a little slow and it took me 30 minutes to upload these 6 pictures.  We spent our first day in Evora seeing the historic sights. It’s quite chilly and a bit rainy here so far, but we’re doing fine. Our flights were fairly uneventful, with some turbulence. The hotel is gorgeous (the M’AR de AR) and bed will soon be calling my name. Tomorrow is a full day of visiting a winery and seeing Enoforum’s head offices, with lunch at the Castle of Monsaraz!

More to come tommorrow!

    Arlie, that’s the bone chapel. It was designed by monks and contains 5,000 human skulls set in the interior walls. The rest of the chapel is lined with mostly what seemed to me femurs and Tibulas. The hanging skeleton is just part of the atmosphere I suppose!

  8. Hope you enjoyed the Chamine with your lunch in Evora! Next time, please do come and visit Cortes de Cima! See you at the next WBC!
