Bragança, Portugal to Zamora, Spain

Portugal is in a different time zone than Spain. It’s one hour earlier. Friday morning I woke up early and got a nice picture of the sunrise and Bragança castle from our hotel room window.


The breakfast room at Pausada de Bragança had a beautiful view too and there was a tree growing out of the floor!

After we checked out of the Pausada we visited the castle. In the castle keep there is a military museum which was interesting.

It took us just over an hour to drive back into Spain to Zamora where we spent the night at the Parador. This is Parador number 71 for Duke and me. We had welcome drinks and played cards in the bar.

I love watching storks. There were two nests on the roof right outside the window.


Duke and I went out to explore a bit before dinner.


Saturday we head back into Portugal towards Lisbon where Ray and Linda will fly home.

  1. Very interesting construction of the castle walls. Looks like they used local stones. Frank Lloyd Wright built with local materials also! Glad you have been able to travel again!
