Barcelona, a photo a day

Portugal


We went to Portugal for 5 days, and here are a few of the almost 1100 photos we took… Above, the Rossio square by night. Below, a train station, the Gare do Oriente, built by the Valencian architect Diego Calatrava. Both in Lisbon.

The catholic sanctuary in Fatima.

The entrance to the presidential palace, in Belem. No, we weren’t invited in.

Detail of the cloister in St Jerome’s monastery, Lisbon.

The magnificent church, in the same monastery.

The Belem Tower.

Typical tramway in the upper town of Lisbon.
