Later we passed an old cistern and the irrigation channel taking the water somewhere.
After some five kilometres we found a bar open and had a couple of cups of coffee and a ham and cheese roll.
Much of the walk was through built up areas and small suburbs until we hit this sign.
Thereafter we found ourselves walking on an ancient Roman road.
The road led us up and out into a wood.
This was by far the nicest part of the walk.
When we got to the top of the hill we had the sea on the left and the clouds below us on the right!
When we emerged from the wood we were in continual built up areas, clearly the suburbs of Porto.
The way past this monument led now down hill all the way into the city for about four kilometres! Here was also a Metro station which led into town, but we walked!
One last stop for elevenses and then on to the bridge over the Duro.
The views were spectacular.
A kind Kiwi tourist took our picture.
Being the 1st of May there were many people about.
On the other side we got ourselves a little bit lost! The city was bustling with tourists enjoying the sights and the weather.
We now occupied our little room. Showers and toilets were just across the hall.
To the left of the knave we found a small chapel.
Here, when the man you see had finished his prayers and gone, our BBF knelt and sang, not too loud, but audible, the Pilgrims Hymn and prayed.
We returned to our hotel just as a May Day labour march was going through the streets!
Then a siesta was called for! Buen Camino! 🐻❤️
