Absolutely Wonderful

Why You'll Love It

If you’re looking for a view, head to Graça, which has loads of them. Hop on Tram 28, and check out the Miradouro de Santa Graca. I also loved just wandering around the streets. One of my favorite memories was ducking into a taverna to escape an absolute torrential downpour. The taverna was overseen by the tiniest of little old women, and her elderly customers occupied the larger table, sipping wine talking over the news of the world.

I had a glass of wine and felt like I’d fallen through a timewarp to an earlier era. No photos except for the one I took in my heart.
