Thursday 7 Oct 2021, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

In 2019 Cathy and her husband spent two weeks driving around Portugal staying in small hotels or pousadas. Starting in Lisbon they drove up the coast to Porto via a number of hilltop towns, followed the Douro River in to Pinhao, then took an inland route back down through the country to end up in Lisbon again. Some of the historic places visited over the two weeks included Sintra, Coimbra, Batalha, Evora and Obidos. As always Cathy took plenty of photos which she will share along with some history, garden visiting and touring.
