A very quick post for this month’s #PastMeetsPresent as I am in Belgium, but hopefully you will enjoy it. Can you spot the difference between Dr Dan Stanislawki’s 1950s shot and my more recent ones? Not sure? Try ignoring the fact I was slightly higher than Dan and look up river, or you may find it easier to take another look at my header photo!
What a difference it must have made to Mértola and in fact Alentejo as a whole when it first opened. Change can be positive sometimes! If you fancy exploring some other #PastMeetsPresent check out these two fabulous entries from last month.
- Jo is on another bridge, this one is further south in the Algarve and we both so wish it had’t changed!
- And Liz takes us up Guildford High Street, a city where I lived very happily for a few years
And if you want to know more about Mértola then why not join me on an evening stroll or perhaps you’d prefer a magical road trip. Whichever adventure you take I am sure you will do as we have, and fall in love with this beautiful town in the south of Alentejo in Portugal.
