Located on the Iberian Peninsula in the south-west of Europe, is Portugal. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and Spain, Portugal has a rich history and culture, a lush landscape, and a variety of attractions to suit any holidaymaker’s needs.
The benefits of having the Atlantic Ocean right on the country’s doorstep can be found not only in Portugal’s impressive maritime history, but also in the country’s famed national dishes. Surely no trip to Portugal would be complete without first tasting Portuguese seafood. Bacalhau, for instance, is a codfish dish so popular with locals that it is known across the country as ‘The Faithful Friend’. One of Portugal’s highest exports, port wine, is produced exclusively in Douro Valley, often growing in striking horizontal lines running along the hills surrounding the river. The seaport city of Porto grew at River Douros’s mouth, which runs into the Atlantic Ocean, and from here the city’s inhabitants have been exporting this sweet, red wine across the world for generations!
Portugal has a remarkably well preserved collection of medieval town centres and castles across the country, meaning you can feel like royalty visiting sites like Quinta da Regaleira palace in Sintra or São Jorge Castle in Lisbon. Any one of the gorgeous beaches along Portugal’s impressive 943 km of coastline can offer a brilliant day out, from Falesia Beach in Algarve, to the gorgeous, sandy stretches of Costa Verde. For a fun day out with a difference, make sure you head to Madeira where you can not only visit Monte Palace and the Botanical Gardens, but also go dolphin and whale watching! With so much to do across Portugal, our team at Best4Travel can help you get the most out of your stay by designing a holiday catered specifically to you!
