Portugal

Next stop was portugal, I landed at Faro Airport and made my way to Algarve. Portugal is in between the Atlantic Ocean and spain. It is part of the European Union. The capital is Lisbon and their religion is Roman Catholic.

You might wanna check out the Chapel of Bones in Evora. It's good to learn about the most haunting and good uses of human bones in all recorded history. The pillars and chancel walls are cemented with human skulls and other bones. It's said to contain over five thousand human skeletons from plague victims.

If you're catholic you should stop at the Alcobaca Monastery. Its found in the Leiria district. It was built in 1252. It has many tombs of several kings and queens. It's the biggest church in Portugal. The surrounding town is very beautiful and has wonderful scenery.
