Wow, I’m busy preparing my trip to Rio in about a month! It is so hard to keep up with blogging during those time. So, here’s a quick photo essay of one of the most beautiful place I’ve seen in Portugal: Covento de Cristo in Tomar.
Half way between Lisbon and Porto, Tomar is a small village, but with a beautiful historical site. I let you take a look…
WARNING! Spoiler Alert!!!
You’ll start to be amazed just walking outside the Covent. Poppies and orange trees offer splash of colors in the landscapes, and the labyrinthinc arrangements will surprise you in every corner.
The amount of details in the building is so impressive. You won’t know where to look!

Have you been there? Did you want to steal oranges like me? (I didn’t! …Did you?)
It is! :)
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.
