Rua Dom Paio Mendes, Braga

It was raining when we visited the cathedral  in Braga.  That’s not unusual; it rains a lot in Braga.  The street was virtually deserted when we got to the cathedral and most of the shops were closed.  We found, on our trip through Portugal, that a lot of shops close between lunch and dinner.

Rua Dom Paio Mendes is the street in front of the cathedral.  The yellow tiled building in the center caught my attention because of the strange figures on the balcony over the first floor.  I don’t know how old they are, but the figures have a kind of medieval feel.  I can imagine them as characters from the Canterbury Tales.

My wife says I make stuff up. While that's probably true I'm going to stick to stuff that's mostly true.
