Click to preview Images of Portugal photo book

These images were made during a two week period in April 2008. Led by Don Lyon of Close-Up Expeditions, the trip started in Lisbon, moved north along the coast to Coimbra & Oporto, then east & south visiting Guarda, Castelo de Vida & Evora, before arriving on the southern Algarve coast. After exploring the Algarve, we returned to Lisbon with a side trip to Sintra.
Time has passed Portugal by...with rugged lands, numerous quaint fishing villages, fortified hill towns & a friendly populace. It is one of the oldest countries in Europe. Its founding in 1139 predates Spain by 350 years. Azulejos (painted ceramic tiles), brightly painted fishing boats, terraced vineyards, cork oak trees & fields of wild flowers are only some of the sights available for the traveler.
