We started our vacation in the north part of Portugal in the industrial and quaint city of Porto. We proceeded next to the port wine region of the Douro Valley. We then headed to the university town of Coimbra. Next, we zig-zagged over to the fishing village of Nazare on the west coast, making side trips to the intriguing villages & towns of Alcobaca, Obidos, Batalha and the holy town of Fatima. We crossed over into the dry plains of the Alentejo region to the Roman walled town of Evora. We then drove south to Tavira and Salema in the sunny and warm Algarve. We even made it out to the most south westerly position of Portugal, discovering Cape Sagres and St. Vincent. We ended our trip in bustling Lisbon, making day excursions to the Disney-like town of Sintra and historical Belem.
