Peaceful Portugal

Here’s a collection of short videos (1 minute or less) to transport you to peaceful Portugal.

I spy the greater flamingos of Tavira every time I visit the salt pans. Often at a great distance, on this day they were seen AND heard!

One of my favorite quiet spots in Tavira – the grounds behind Igreja de São Francisco.

Igreja da Misericórdia is striking, inside and out. Another wonder of Tavira.

Castelo de Tavira dates to 11th century and overlooks the town center.

A quick loop around the castle grounds reveal ancient ruins, beautiful cobblestone pathways and vistas.

A smattering of stunning views in the Algarve (southern coast of Portugal): ocean and rocky landscapes at Lagos (Praia do Camilo), Lagoa (Benagil), seagulls circling the Rio Gilao in old town Tavira, and anchors on the shore (Praia do Barril).
