The Portuguese Palace: Portugal Part 8

On our final day in Portugal, we had a few hours to kill before we needed to be at the airport, so we instead found ourselves at the beautiful Monserrate Palace.

In my opinion this is how you combine Romanticism, Moorish and Neo-gothic architecture, as opposed to that other palace (cough Pena cough). The area outside of the spectacular palace takes the form of a park, filled with exotic plants and wonderful greenery. A perfect place to spend our final hours in Portugal.

In all, I don’t think I have a bad word to say about Portugal, except that I wish I could have seen more of it (oh, and the parking spaces are way too small), I especially would have liked to see more of Lisbon. Besides that, it is a staggering country, filled with beauty, diversity and a rich history to match. People are welcoming and the roads were easy (baring in mind we did use the toll roads which are probably worth the extra Euros) But if its lazing on the beach, walking in the lush hills, discovering ancient castles or just exploring the cities, Portugal has enough to suit everybody’s tastes.

I hope you enjoyed this eighth and final part of my trip to Portugal. If you did enjoy it feel free to write in the comments, or leave like and thanks for reading.

  1. Great series! Portugal looks beautiful, but hot. Also, I hope you’re settling in well in Vienna! I know you’ll love your study abroad experience. Hike early and often in the Alps before the snows come. 😉
