Portugal with Joy Hammer

spain wide 3


Such a small country with so much to offer!  We began our journey in the fall of 2007 in the capital of Lisbon, exploring its rich cultural heritage, historic neighborhoods, and great nightlife, and ended with a few days relaxing on the breathtaking beaches of the Algarve. 

In between, we toured the picturesque village of Sintra with its 2 fabulous palaces, the charming walled towns of Obidos and Evora, and the magnificent monasteries of Alcobaca and Batalha.  From dramatic coastline to lush green landscapes, the countryside was simply beautiful.  Sampling the varied cuisine and wines, especially port, was an enjoyable "must"!

We spent several nights in historic Pousadas, which are castles, convents, fortresses or palaces, and very atmospheric. English is spoken almost everywhere, and we appreciated the fact that Portugal is a better value than other European countries.  Portugal truly has something for everyone!
