So Many Stairs!35 viewsGiven that it was 35 C and I had my complete wardrobe, sleeping bag, etc on my back, not to mention nice heavy jeans and two layers of clothes, the going got a little warm. I changed behind one of those towers. Which only made the pack heavier.

Palace18 viewsThe palace at the top of the hill can be seen all the way from Lisbon (1 hr away) and also the sea (35 mins). I missed seeing it by some poor timing, but apparently it's an eclectic mishmash of styles.

Star Wars Exhibit14 viewsI happened across a poster that their library was running a Star Wars display free of charge, so why not. There's AT-ATs and AT-STs! And Han Solo, still in the original packaging! And a bent wookie!
