Looking for a bike shop, I went into a bookstore here.

Igreja dos Clérigos

The Igreja dos Clérigos is so tall that it is difficult to get onto one photograph except from a distance. And yes, you can climb to the top. I’ll never do that again.

Smiling to learn they had the parts I needed.

018 Porto Palacio de Cristal

The Crystal Palace Gardens

The Palacio de Cristal is nice if you want to walk in a green place and see a great view to the Douro River. The building itself isn’t worth seeing.
