Too many wonderful experiences to single one out. Tram ride was fun, boat trip was invigorating, and there were plenty of delightful seafood options along with great Christmas market stalls.

Had very nice trips to Óbidos, Nazaré, Fátima and Belém. Had a chance to taste the famous Pastel de Nata in Belém. Óbidos is a very nice medieval small village that we would like to visit again.
