Faro, Portugal

Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Our first stop today was the train station to buy our tickets for the train to Lisbon tomorrow.

Then we explored Faro.

The gate to the old town.

The former convent that houses the archaeology museum.
And the pretty old streets.
But I think the coolest thing was seeing the storks nesting on the old churches.
For dinner we ate at a seafood restaurant recommended by our hotel. They started us off with a kind of pickled carrot.


Then we had the mixed tapas.

For the main course we shared a local kind of seafood stew. I wish I had taken a picture when the tureen first arrived at our table. Large prawns were piled on top. Then the waiter mixed it all together. The picture doesn’t do it justice. It was delicious and filling. We couldn’t finish it.
