We departed for Lisbon, stopped at Batalha for wine tasting. We sampled two ports and two dessert wines. I really enjoyed the almond liquor.
After our wine sampling we travelled to Fatima for lunch and to visit the Cathederal. Most of the Cathederal was closed due to restoration works.
After Our Fatima visit, we continued onto Lisbon, arriving at 5.30 pm, after 1 hours rest we all got ready to go to our Fado night.
Fado is traditional in portugese, very sad poems that are sung, short and hard to understand when you do not speak portugese. An enjoyable night was had by all.
That evening we met Teresa, a friend that we met 2 years ago in South America, we spent an enjoyable few hours together, so wonderful to explore the city of Lisbon with a local.
View over looking Lisbon.
Gorgeous tiled buildings in Lisbon
We also visited the Cathederal in Lison,,starting to become ABC (another bloody church).
Lison or Lisboa as the portugese like to call it has the most amazing aqueduct going over the city, no longer in use, last used in 1963.
