Experience an Authentic Portugal

Why visit Portugal ?

History and culture, nature and a rich landscape are some of the main atractions of Portugal, with its incredible beaches and several outdoor activities to explore.

Let us share with you 5 good reasons to visit Portugal:

  • History & Traditions. Eight centuries of the reigns of monarchs were marked by beautiful legends, emotional stories and the construction of imposing monuments in different styles, one of which is very Portuguese, the Manueline style, with marked nautical influence. This entire legacy of hundreds of years, makes the history of Portugal by itself a reason for visiting Portugal.
  • Nature. Several Natural Parks make Portugal a treasure for nature lovers. Don't miss Peneda-Gerês National Park, Douro or Costa Vicentina and explore different outdoor activities like walk, bike or surf.
  • Food & Wine. Another main atraction of Portugal is its gastronomy and wines. Bread, wine and olive oil are the base of the cuisine and when you are sitting at the table, there will certainly be no shortage of cheese. The sweets are heavily influenced by the convents. The portuguese wines grow in specific regions, with different characteristics from north to south. 
  • Weather and Sunny Days. Portugal has 300 days of sunshine per year, where you can still feel the 4 seasons of the year, not too hot in the summer, neither too cold in the winter, perfect to travel all year round.
  • The Portuguese People. People of big smiles, always ready to help, with great friendliness and warm hospitality.

Portugal “planted by the sea” has the cultural and historical wealth of a country with the oldest borders in Europe. Coupled with the beauty and diversity of the landscape, still sheltered from mass tourism routes, it enchants and captivates for its authenticity and natural beauty.

The Portuguese are known for their humility, friendliness and warm reception.

Gastronomy

Portuguese food is of great richness and variety and is very important to any "good Portuguese".

Portugal, the European country with the oldest borders, is also one of the safest countries to travel, so prepare to discover the westernmost point of  Europe, fulfiled with charming villages, kilometres of gold sandy beaches, big waves to surf, natural parks to walk or bike and authentic food & wine. Here there is always time for a "bica" (cup of coffee) and a "pastel de nata".

 

Climate and Nature

The 300 days of sunshine that illuminate this tranquil and peaceful country, is just one aspect that makes it special.
