Tourism and Regions

Portugal, despite its small size, has a huge variety of landscapes, from green mountains to miles of sun-bathed beaches. Our country, situated at the south-western tip of Europe, is a perfect destination for all seasons, just a few hours’ drive to any European capital. Portugal is endowed with a unique cultural heritage, where tradition and contemporaneity combine in harmony. The gastronomy, the good wines and the sympathy of the Portuguese are three attractive reasons to not fail to visit us. The Portuguese capital – Lisbon – is undoubtedly an eclectic and cosmopolitan city. Nearby, Cascais hosts breath-taking beaches and Sintra will enchant you with its forests and castles worthy of fairy tales. In the North, Porto is famous for the wines of the region, but if you are looking for a good dose of sun and beach, the cliff coast of the Algarve will definitely be the right choice. A short flight will take you to the island of Madeira – known as the ‘floating garden of the Atlantic’ – popular for its natural beauty. If you are looking for a destination surrounded by idyllic landscapes and looking forward to some peace and tranquility, the Azores could be the ideal destination.
