Portugal: A Perfect 10 (Days)

I traveled through the northern part of Portugal over a month ago, landing in Lisbon first but immediately headed north to Coimbra first and then on to Porto and nearby towns. Truly a country full of beauty and history.

Day 1 – Coimbra
Formerly Portugal’s capital, a medieval city known best for its historic University of Coimbra, the oldest such scholarly institution in all of Europe. The main university building was once the royal palace.

  7. Wow these locations look absolutely stunning. Thank you for sharing. Love the fact that the main University building was once a royal palace. That’s amazing. Must be even more stunning inside. 😮 Do you visit museums whenever you go on these trips (if time permits it of course)?
