I love seeing the old churches. It's always so amazing to see the work that it took to build those old churches

I was laughing reading the huffing and puffing up the hill - I'm sure the girl was cheering you on :)


More likely amused at my huffing and puffing Faye!


Very nice post Kirk, I always enjoy your travel posts. Such a different pace of life over there.

I probably would have liked that almond/marmalade pastry you had. Do you recall the name of it?


Hi CC - Those are Pastel de Santa Clara.

Ed (from Yuma)

Those scallop shells make me suspect that Coimbra was on one of the Portuguese routes to Santiago de Campostela, which was one of the major places for pilgrimage in the middle ages. Scallop shells were big there too and that church was a St James cathedral as well.


Hi Ed - I do believe Coimbra is on the Camino Portugues.


This is another post that I read as romantic. The food and architecture and general open schedule-just a perfect time.


amazing city!


It was Cathy.......we basically had no plans, which usually turns out well for us.

It was Kat!
