Full to the brim with Latin spirit and passion, Portugal is an appealing Mediterranean country which is full of eye-catching destinations.
A hugely influential world superpower in centuries past, the impact of Portuguese explorers is still evident in South America and Africa. The historic capital Lisbon can boast exceptional attractions such as Jerónimos Monastery and Belém Tower, not to mention great shopping and an energetic nightlife, marking it out as a special city to visit.
Close to Lisbon lies Sintra, home to one of Europe's most spectacular palaces. To the north, unique Porto is the home of port wine (a winery tour is a must), and its brilliant Old Town is a great place to lose yourself for a few hours.
There's plenty to savour in this Iberian playground – when you're planning your next trip to Europe, be sure to consider Portugal!
