Part 2 of our trip in Portugal, mostly in Algarve region. Check the first part here.
Our itinerary for day two was to keep it simple and somewhere near. I read that there’s a vineyard fifteen minutes by car from our hotel and I always wanted to visit one. I think it’s the romantic in me as most of my favourite romantic films were filmed in a Southern European setting with wine, vineyards and the likes (i.e Under The Tuscan Sun and Letters to Juliet to name a few). So Odd and I made a trip to Adega do Cantor (Winery of the Singer) and it’s named as such because one of the owners is Sir Cliff Richard (too bad he was not around when we were there). Liz, our guide was just fabulous and we learned a lot about grapes and the process of winemaking.
The next day, we took a 3-hour drive towards the city of Évora. I never heard anything about this city before and was not in our radar of places to visit until I read about it in a novel. The place was highlighted in The Blood of Olympus, the fifth and last book of The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan.
The Capela dos Ossos was kind of creepy, but it was fun!
