Photos from Portugal

Photos from Portugal

Sorry for the lack of activity, but I was on vacation. I managed to get some nice photos in Portugal and they are all available on Flickr. Since it is not my first time there, this time I decided to explore locations apart from the big cities.

Here are the 10 locations I visited. Click on the images below for the full album. All photos were taken with a Fuji X-E1 and a Fuji 18-55mm f/2.8-4.0 lens.

Enjoy!

Lisboa

My way in and out Portugal this time. I used the capital as a base to visit Mafra, Sintra and Óbidos.

Mafra

Home of the impressive National Palace.

Sintra

My second time here. This time I went to the Quinta da Regaleira / Monserrate circuit, with a stop for lunch at the Seteais Palace.

Coimbra

Home of Portugal’s most famous university.

Conímbriga

Well-preserved Roman ruins near Coimbra.

Porto

Used the city as a base to visit Braga and Guimarães.

Braga

Nice city with a lot of churches to visit, including the impressive Bom Jesus do Monte.

Guimarães

Castle and palace visits.

Aveiro

Beautiful city with plenty of canals. “Portuguese Venice” is an overstatement, though.

Óbidos

Interesting medieval walled city.
