Northern Portugal

We packed up to leave our villa in the mountains to head towards Braga. Our gracious host came in the back door to prepare breakfast for us. Sweet, huh? It was time to go!

Our next Air b&b is outside Braga, I think. We will visit some old historical cities the next few days, i.e. Braga, Porto, Braganca, Amarante, Ponte de Lima . We’ll be in a central location to visit each. What a trip.

I don’t know if is by design, but I like it, each day we have expresso coffee and a pasteis de nata . They are so good. Shhhh…somedays we have 2.

In Braga we will visit Bom Jesus, climbing up a 17 flight staircase to the cathedral, viewing gardens and feeling the peace.

Then a walk through the Jardim de Santa Barbara, the archways, the roses, in the background once a palace is now used as a library and archives. These gardens were immaculate. Oh the roses!

We walked around Braga, there was a graduation ceremony going on in a portion of downtown market, singers on the streets, even a flea market. Very festive and entertaining.

Next stop Porto.
