We began our last day in Portugal by walking from our hotel to the Praça do Comércio. Along the way, we checked out Mude, Lisbon’s free design museum. It was a great way to get out of the rain and we really enjoyed the exhibits. We continued walking to the Praça do Comércio and as we reached the waterfront, the clouds broke up and we felt the warm Portuguese sunshine!
While in the Praça, we attended an unimpressive wine tasting at ViniPortugal. I can’t really complain too much about a free wine tasting, but we shouldn’t have wasted our time.
Leaving the tasting, we walked past a ginginha stand. Back in Tavira, our hosts had told us about ginginha en copa de chocolate and, being fans of both ginginha and of chocolate, we had to have a taste. Yum-my!
We were enjoying the sunshine so much that we decided to walk all the way up to Principe Real.
I wish we could have spent more time in the area- there was so much to see! I miss Portugal terribly and am sad to be done blogging about it. A return trip is imminent…
