Day 1 - Lisboa. Cascais

A nice and easy walking tour through the old Moorish narrow streets in one of the oldest neighborhoods of the city. It survived to the Earthquake of 1755 and it's the right place to find the true soul of Portuguese neighbors.

Going down the slopes of the Cathedral to the River Tejo the view it's just dazzling... 

In the nineteenth and geometrical Pombaline downtown  reinvented after the big Earthquake of 1755. 


Following  the river line from Lisbon historic center to Belém,  by car, we'll have: the Monument to the Discoveries specially made to the World Exhibition of 1940; the Monastery of Jerónimos Order and the Belém Tower - a military fortress to protect the entrance of Lisbon coming from the Atlantic. 

All this, in a modern city full of life and color, nowadays. 

We need a short break - let's order pastries of Belém in the famous Lisbon's Tart Café - Pastéis de Belém

Although it has only been sold for 183 years, the recipe is over 200 years old or more... 

Cascais. Captivating and glamorous village! An excellent choice for a walk on the beautiful and creative Portuguese pavement;  breathing fresh air; enjoying the transparent sea, on the bay, the fortress and the picturesque historic center. Feel like staying ... but our overnight is in Lisbon

Day 2 - Algarve: Lagos. Dona Ana and Camilo's Beaches.

Blue and Green Seas. Cliffs. Caves. Beach after beach of soft sand...Welcome to Algarve. 


After lunch we explore the picturesque landscapes provided by the cliffs and the crystal clear waters of Dona Ana Beach and Camilo. Sandy coves tucked between brightly colored cliffs. Very interesting rock formations.


This adventure, along the Algarve coast line, would not be complete without a visit to Ponta da Piedade - a huge rock formation hollowed out by the sea. 

The bold colors of the strangely shaped rock - yellow, ocre and red contrast with the crystal blue of the sea. 

The lighthouse stands near the site of an old coastal defense fortification.

But it is the sunset that most delights us over the waterline. 


We returned to town for a wonderful dinner. We recommend the fish and the excellence of Portuguese wines. 

Overnight in Lagos

The Promontory Sacrum or Sacred Promontory - evoke the past of a place that is part of the history of the world, remembering Henry the Navigator and The Age of Discoveries and  English pirates like Francis Drake.
