Rainy day at Rua Infantaria Quinze in Tomar

It was one of those wet days as you can see in these photos shot at this narrow street called Rua Infantaria Quinze, in the old town of Tomar. I reckon that cobblestone streets look best in the rain. The glisten on the pavement highlights the roughly square stones that were laid here and the grey atmosphere in this middle age street under the rain greatly appeals to my senses. However if you don’t like to walk under an umbrella when it rains in Tomar, venture into one of the small shops and buy some treasures to make you remember this wonderful Portuguese historical city.

This is a cobblestone narrow street in Tomar in a rainy day, called Rua Infantaria Quinze. On the left is the building where a printing company, Gráfica de Tomar are located. I think they have closed down its doors
