The library, garden and the amazing beautiful blue and white azulajeros (Portugese tiles) are well worth a visit as a view into the wealth and power of the Portugese colonial masters.

It was a real treat for the senses to be here recently. The streets were swimming with joyful revellers last weekend and the atmosphere was electric.There were very distinctive photo opportunities in the softly lit night quarters and it seemed like a hazy, warm dream.

My recommendation, to go at night, the photo comes out better with the lights on the building and not many people, you can take as many as you like and post however you like. Too many people in the day time.

Lots of tourists. Streets lined with small shops, many offering tastes of cookies, meat and candy. Worth walking one way or the other.
