On our last day in Lisbon we took it easy since it was rainy in the afternoon. Before lunch we walked around the coast of Lisbon seeing the main city square and stopping at LOTS of souvenir shops (Andee and Darcie both had some things they wanted to get). For lunch we went to the Timeout Market which is pretty touristy and a little expensive but we all went to different vendors and each one of us love our meal and the atmosphere was tons of fun!
After lunch we went to the Sao Roque Cathedral which looks incredibly unimpressive from the outside but as soon as you walk in you are amazed by the massive painting on the large wooden planks that create the cathedral’s roof. The next thing you notice is that in the chapel to the right there must be more gold than the Inca Lost City must have had. After admiring everything the cathedral had to offer we headed back to Alfama but before we got there we saw the famous yellow trams and had to hop on quickly for a photo!
That evening we went to a small local restaurant for some decent and cheap Portuguese food and spent the evening packing. The next morning we said goodbye to Andee as she headed to the airport and the three of us headed to the bus station. It was about a four hour bus into Lagos and after locating our Airbnb host (he forgot to email us the address and where to meet him to get the keys) we were rewarded with a beautiful view of both the Iberlagos pool and the absolutely stunning Pria Dona Ana.
That evening we got some super delicious pizza and wine and made friends with some American ladies who were on a weekend trip from Germany (where they live now) and they gave us lots of suggestions for activities and restaurants for our stay while we enjoyed their wifi as our place had none. On our first full day in Lagos we did some errands and then headed to enjoy the beautiful beach and pool!
