Portugal in a Nutshell
The pioneers of globalization first sailed off the Atlantic Ocean from this Iberian country and “opened waters” to what was called the Age of Discovery. The westernmost country in Europe combines a rich historical past with age-old culture and a delicious cuisine. Picturesque medieval castles and charming villages, extensive stretches of pristine beaches surrounded by huge cliffs, scattered stunning islands and a charismatic capital city – Lisbon – echoing the sounds of Fado are only some of the things Portugal prides itself on.
Beyond Lisbon, Porto & the Algarve
There seems to be a magnet attracting visitors to Portugal’s top three destinations: the unpolished capital city Lisbon, charming Porto and the gorgeous beaches and picturesque fishermen’s villages of the Algarve. But around and beyond them lay many other unexplored wonders and UNESCO World Heritage Sites with centuries-old history and both picturesque and dramatic landscapes.
Food and Festivals Obsessed
The Portuguese do know how to celebrate life and if there’s one thing that can never be left out from a good party is a table full food and wine! From North to South and not leaving out the islands, many are the religious festivities as well as music, culture and gastronomy festivals taking place all throughout the year. But as everywhere else on earth, Summer is, of course, the peak time for social gatherings.
Get Everything You Can Ask For
Are you an adventurer and nature lover? Or perhaps you’re more into culture and history? A foodie? Well, whatever type of traveller you are, Portugal will serve you accordingly. With over 24 natural parks and wildlife reserves, offering every type of leisure activities and extreme sports you can imagine, mouth-watering and traditional food (with plenty of guilty pleasures for the sweet tooths) combined with a cultural heritage influenced by a diverse flow of prehistoric, Roman, Barbarian and Moorish invasions, this small Mediterranean country is truly an invaluable destination.
