Rossio Square with farmers market stands in the little houses.
Lots of goodies here with an occasional free sample.
The night before we went to a Fado show at the hotel. It is a Portuguese music format that is very expressive and profoundly melancholic. It is popular in many bars and pubs.
Upon arriving in Sintra, we encountered this musician who was looking for his next gig. It started to rain hard shortly thereafter and we ducked into a cafe for lunch, hoping it would end soon.
Unfortunately, after lunch, the rain increased, making both touring and photographs impossible.
The palaces and museums here looked spectacular (much more so than the examples in these photos).
Finally, it was raining so hard and we were soaking wet that we thought it best to take the next train back to Lisbon. On the way to the train station, we encountered this Moorish structure. Sintra looked like one of the more interesting places in Portugal but, unfortunately, we do not have photos to prove it.
