Day 10: Sevilla (Spain) - Evora (Portugal) - Lisbon


Templo de Diana (Roman temple)

Capela dos Ossos (Chapel of the Bones)
This is the highlight of Evora, a chapel decorated with human skulls and bones. At the entrance it was written in Portuguese "We bones that are here, for your bones we wait." Actually, it wasn't that creepy inside the chapel. The Crypt of Capuchin Monks in Rome is bigger and more beautifully decorated.

Row of skulls adorned the ceiling

A child and the dog??

Lisbon is the capital city of Portugal. The first view of Lisbon from the 25th of April bridge was wonderful. Love at first sight.

Port of Lisbon

The Aquaduct

Hotel Roma
Our room was so big, with a full set of sofa!! I think it was at least a junior suite, never in my history of touring I got such a big room, unless you paid for it. So we started analysing.. maybe they didn't have enough standard room and they had to upgrade one and they chose me because my name sounded like a Portuguese hahaha... (some people including our tour guide asked whether I had any Portuguese link)

It was a good start..
