A Rich History to Explore
Lisbon, the capital, is charming, and the hills make it a fun city to walk about in. The historic old city which ends on the water’s edge at a magnificent square with a Palace abutted to it. The site is both dramatic and majestic! Almost 8 years ago we were in Portugal as a family and had a wonderful visit. We started in Lisbon, then stayed for a few nights in Cascais, then drove up the coast via Nazare ending with a few days in Porto. One of the special memories of that trip was celebrating my daughter’s birthday on June 23rd which coincides with Saint Jean-Baptiste Day – when Porto comes alive with a giant street party! It is spectacular – to say the least!
