Yannick's Travel Journal - Photos Around The World

Travel Journal – 001 – Portugal – Ponte de Lima and Surroundings

Welcome to my first travel journal entry fellow readers! It will be mostly about the pictures and not too much about reading millions of words about what I have learned there. Just easily digestible articles about some essential info. I’ll be trying to find the perfect balance between a perfectly scrollable picture story where you can stop at any picture and read a little bit about what it’s all about. All the pictures have been taken with the A7R II.
Let’s get to it 🙂

PONTE DE LIMA

Ponte de Lima is known for the oldest village in Portugal (march 4th 1125), belongs to the district of Viana do Castelo inPortugal. The population in 2011 was 43,498 in an area of 320.25 km². It is named after the long medieval bridge that passes over the Lima river that runs next to the town.
