    ... day. The King of Portugal had it built with the intention of it being the finest hotel in Europe but there was a revolution just before it was completed and Portugal became a republic. The bedrooms were completely rebuilt in 2006 but the wonderful public rooms and grand staircase were left untouched. We have a snack lunch and then go to the pool.

    ... could capture our morning.

    We have struggled this Camino with accommodation & have been seriously and actively looking each day for the next days destination, booking if we can (frequently not an option) to secure something so that we don't have to do 30+kms every day if we fail.
