beautiful nature at Cabo da Roca
Sintra, Portugal
Sintra. UNESCO World Heritage Site. Known for its preserved/classified architectural monuments.

Obviously, these photos hardly do justice to Portugal. They are, however, snapshots of some of my favourite areas and moments. Of the 500+ photos I took on my trip, I hope these give you a glimpse of the adventure that is Portugal.

Stay tuned for part 2, with more details about the fantastic 5 days I spent in Lisboa, Cabo da Roca, Sintra, and Porto. In the meantime, can you guess which city was my favourite?
