At the Templar´s Portuguese Convent

I´m telling you about my short trip to Portugal  backwards because the best part happened on the last day of the trip aside from witnessing a real bird poop shower on the road near the Spanish- Portuguese border on our first day and getting lost while looking for our hotel in Coimbra. So on our last day( on our way back to Spain), we stopped by two historic sights one of which was at Batalha and the other one which I´m showing you below was the Convent of the Monastery of Christ ( Convento de Cristo) in Tomar, an original Templar stronghold in the 12th century.

Anyway, like in Valencia, it´s chilly in the morning but as the day progresses on, the temperature can reach up to 22 ºC. I still wore a scarf because it´s the perfect accessory for a simple outfit and the most important part is --> it concealed my growing muffin top from eating too much butter (they serve it there every day from breakfast to dinner, whoa!) and leitao(sucking/roast pig). And oh my, there goes my hand(right) AGAIN! lol!

This was taken at the higest part of the convent. By the way, this is gigantic and intricately designed building is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
