      Last day in Portugal

      A travel blog entry by ianhelen on Oct 18, 2014

      Our last day in Portugal was spending time with the Fergusons and the Morenos having a lunch of the Brazilian national dish - the feijoada, just google it. It was really good bonding time for our families. It was jump at like the christening feast - long table with plenty of food and wine.

      Our time in Portugal is coming to an end and we will miss Maria's family.

      ... rising suddenly up to 500 metres from the valleys, each crowned by a stone fortress. Lower down, dazzling towns constructed of marble - from the skilled masonry of the convents and official halls, to neat cobblestone footpaths. Bells clanging from all the church towers, never synchronised. The Yellow stripe house is a lovingly restored shepherd's cottage over two hundred years old.

      So far this trip has been a continuation of sightseeing, eating and drinking. That night I had a risotto with cubed liver on top - absolutely soft and delicious ...

      A travel blog entry by renebabin on Sep 21, 2014

      Got to our stop for the night before heading north. Had been told to come see Monsaraz. It is well worth the visit. Wondered around the castle and old fortifications. Staying down in the valley at Horta da Mjoura. Very quite place , nice relaxing time at the pool once we checked in. Not to be confused with horse de moura!, silly Tomtom ... 13 k's away and in a tiny town, and not much more than a shack, but not open anyways. Since it ...

      ... get to the 16th century Chapel of Bones which contains the bones of 5000 people.

      The chapel is a large rectangular room with dim golden mood lighting. The surfaces of all walls are the knobby ends of patella and skulls. Pillars are adorned with laterally stacked thigh bones. Two skeletons suspended creepily. A Franciscan Monk supposedly built this as a meditation chamber and as a reminder of the human ...
