Portugal - Day 1

Once each year my wife and I get to plan a vacation.  This year Portugal!

Our first night was in the Knights Templar town of Tomar...

The rail platform near Lisbon

The Knights Templar monastery

Very ornate and a surreal experience to navigate the halls and portals of  this awesome church and sanctuary

A obelisk of sorts

In the Templar church, the alter is inside an ornate circular structure

More on this later, the old cathedral once saw coronations of princes

An aqueduct brought water to the complex.
 An amazing first day in Portugal.  Tonight if I get a chance I'll post some pics of day 2...
