Portugal – Thursday in Porto

Today began with a visit to the Photography Museum, housed in what was once a prison.  The building and its views of the city from windows with iron bars offered as much interest as the extensive collection of cameras, contemporary photo exhibits and photographs of former prisoners.

Then we walked, and walked, lunched at O Barco restaurant, then walked some more, ending the afternoon in the Church of Sao Francisco (no photos) and its historic catacombs.
