We discovered last year that we have a passion on the north of Portugal so we went there again.

Maybe some of you would find boring but I ca't help showing you some of those wonderful places, full of churches, gardens and beautiful landscapes. And History.

For instance, this place is in Braga, Bracara Augusta, as it was called in Roman Times. The region of Braga has been inhabited since pre-historic times, and in the Iron Age the Bracari people occupied the region and built their characteristic fortified villages (castrum). It was very important in the Middle Age as a catholic city and there happened a Council. It was called the portuguese Rome. Unfortunately the english article on Braga at Wikipedia doesn't show this importance, only the portuguese one.

Important and beautiful as it is, it's always full of turists.

Outdoor Wednesday

Today is Wednesday so we have Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer.
The weather here has been quite nice and fresh with dark sky and rain.

Maybe some of you are thinking that we are having bad weather but no, for me is the most wonderful, calming weather we can have.

The plants are all wet and fresh, so delighted with the rain as I am.

Just look at them, all happy.

Praise Our Lord.
