    • PORTUGAL: SURFING IN MAY

      Portugal Apr 5, 2014 at 8:52 AM

      Hello everybody. I'm going to try surfing for the first time. Me and my friend has chosen Portugal as a place to go. We've bought tickets on a plane from 1 to 13 of may. But it looks like may is not a good season for surfing. So, I have a question, could you please recommend where can we go to have a good experience in surfing at that time? We think about the Peniche, but maybe Algarve or Ericeira or something else would be a better place to surf at this time. Or maybe something else. Could you please advise. Also, we have a problem with choosing the surf school. There are so many schools and only a few reviews about them. So it's very difficult to choose a good one. :(

      Lisbon to Fatima/Santeram to Santiago Compostela

      Fátima Jan 5, 2014 at 7:33 AM

      4 people travelling together, arriving Lisbon by air in late May. I wonder we should drive rather than by bus for the convenience and flexibility. I have researched and aware of the buses from Lisbon to Fatima, Fatima to Santeram, and Fatima to Santiago. The estimated total bus fares is about 80+ euro including a round trip between Fatima and Santarem, and Lisbon airport to city. We would have to pay more for a car for sure.

      If we drive, we will probably have to return the car off in Oporto and take a bus across to avoid the excessive one-way drop charge, or to drive to Santiago and back to Oporto to return the car. We can fly out of Santiago or Oporto to Madrid or Barcelona.

      Is it safe to drive in Portugal and across to Santiago? I read much about the high speed drivers in Portugal.

      Thanks in advance!

      Specific Directions Please-- Aljustrel, Valinos, Loca Da Anjo + Via Sacra

      Fátima Jul 17, 2012 at 3:54 PM

      Hello everyone.
      My friends and I are driving to Fatima next month.
      Aside from the main shrine and chapel, we would like to visit
      Aljustrel, Valinhos, and Loca da Anjo to see the homes of Franciso and Jacinta,and Lucia, and the museum (in Aljustreal) monuments/scuptures (in Valinhos and Loca da Anjo) among others. All that I could find is that it is within 3 KM of the main shrine; somewhere near the south rotunda (de Santa Teresa).

      Where exactly are these places? Are they three different places and far from each other? Does anyone have an exact address, name of a street, or specific directions so we can drive to it?

      I also read there is a "little train" that can take us there. Is there a train schedule for this?

      Lastly: the Via Sacra. 14/15 stations of the cross (+ Ressurection) that starts near Aljustrel/south Rotunda de Santa Teresa, and ends in the Calvary Shrine. It is laid out in the "path" that the shepherds took from Aljustrel to Cova De Iria so I am assuming you cannot drive along this route. Question: How far is the last station/Calvary from the main Basilica, i.e. can you easily walk to it from the main Basilica?

      Thank you for your anticipated replies.

      How to get inside of Charola?

      Tomar Oct 10, 2011 at 5:02 AM

      Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
      A have a question about the access to so called Charola or the altar part of the Convent of Christ in Tomar. When I’m looking at the pictures uploaded by many travelers I see that sometime the doors of Charola itself are closed and you cannot get in. But some pictures are made inside of the Charola that means sometime it is possible to get in. Can anybody tell me is it possible to get in? If yes, than how I can do that? I’m very interested to make pictures of any images (icons, statues, frescoes and etc.) of military Saints such as Saint George, Saint Florian, Saint Sebastian and so on. Any tips where I can find such images in Tomar would be highly appreciated. Those pictures will help me in my study of medieval military history because they are the valuable source on arms and armor, clothing and etc. of appropriate period.
      Thank you in advance for your assistance.
