    Oh, isn’t Convento the Christo just amazing! I absolutely loved it! Which reminds me that I need to finish that post about Tomar and the other two monasteries we visited while we were in Portugal. Thanks for highlighting Portugal. It doesn’t seem to be as popular with tourists as Spain, and it really should, because it’s so pretty.

      You are right! It’s not only pretty, it’s also super affordable! We need to promote it with budget travelers.
