07. Lourinha – PT

tyrannosaurus-rex-dinosaur-silhouette-2Now if you have a kid then sure, why not? You should stop, visit, but I think a toy will serve him better. How did I ended up seeing this? Well I was on way to Sintra (the place to spend the night before Lisboa) and I came across a red Circus. So red and so beautiful that we stopped, I took my camera, and started shooting photos. But just on a fence, there, was a poster with: Lourinha – The capital of dinosaurs. I was like, oook let’s check it out, perhaps is more interesting than the last place!

And so we ended up stopping here, and visiting the museum. I am not a hater, and I saw the whole museum, and went in every corner of it (not big by the way).

All I can say, it is placed in a not so big a village, the museum is also not that big. Yet If you don’t mind looking at replicas… well go, like I did! But don’t expect much! Grutas da Moeda is still the best in this category. Then the dino-footprints, if they are real, then this place… I am sure I have not seen the best of Portugal in this matter. But I will!

The museum has other strong points, but not the dinosaur part. So don’t go there just for that 🙂 (small note, the image bellow, is actually from a small cathedral presented in the museum. I managed to put the camera’s 8mm lens inside and with lots of trial and error, I nailed it!)
