Another view of Travessa do Arco in Tomar

This is Travessa do Arco, another medieval street in the City of Tomar, paved with cobblestones. There was a time cars were allowed to circulate and even park in this alley but in 2010 given how narrow is this lane, the Town Council of Tomar deliberated to forbid most traffic with the exception of loading and unloading goods. There is an 500 years old palace here called Palácio dos Velhos de Macedo whose owner, Mr. José Maria Shearman Velho de Macedo has written to me last year.
