Portugal Photo Diary Part 2: Guimarães and Lisbon

Posted by: Rebecca Atwood

Our next stop in Portugal was Guimarães, which was primarily for me to visit new factories for an exciting project that we'll release next year. My days were pretty packed with factory visits but it was equally inspiring--just in a different way. I don't have many photos from this part of my trip that I can share just yet so I've combined this with our last few days in Lisbon. Scroll down for my favorite spots in both of these cities. Lisbon we had beautiful weather for and really soaked up all that sunshine knowing we would be returning to winter weather here in New York.

Guimarães Favorite Spots

To Stay

Pousada de Guimarães - Santa Marinha - This beautiful building was a monastery and has an amazing garden. It is located on a hill away from the main city, so you'll need to take a taxi down during the day if you want to walk around the medieval part of the city.

To Eat

Restaurante Típico Batista

Piramide do Egipto 

We went to a few local spots and thoroughly enjoyed our meals!

Lisbon Favorite Spots

To Stay

Memmo Alfama -- We loved our hotel. The best part was the large porch where you could sit, have a glass of wine, and take in the view. They also had a great breakfast and were very helpful.

To Eat

Cervejaria Ramiro - A local seafood spot. If I were to go back, I'd order a whole plate full of this.

Belcanto - This was one of those once in a lifetime meals and it didn't disappoint. It was a special experience to have with my parents as they own their own restaurant on Cape Cod.

To Do

Shop A Vida Portuguesa

Explore the Tile Museum

Walk around the city and just take it all in.
