Last Day in Portugal

After three days of intense exploration of all that Lisbon has to offer, relaxing and taking a slow day was much needed. The final day of our stay in Portugal also happened to be the biggest holiday of the year in Lisbon, El día de Sao Antonio.

Port Wine House 

The final day we managed to visit the Solar do Vinho do Porto and enjoyed rose and white port beverages in a cool and quiet atmosphere. Located at Rua de Sao Pedro de Alcantara in Lisbon, this bar is a good place to go to enjoy reasonably priced port wine and a relaxing atmosphere. The service was not the fastest, but it was worth having patience to enjoy a refreshing port beverage. The building is an 18th century palace, adding sentiments of charm to the overall atmosphere. Port wine here is available by the glass or bottle, with a huge selection to choose from.
The majority of the rest of the day was spent walking around and enjoying the last views of the city. Lisbon is really a beautiful city worthy of a visit by anyone entranced by European charm and especially Iberian customs. I really enjoyed my stay in Portugal, it was a wonderful experience to have with my mom and my aunts before kicking off my summer study abroad.
