From its bustling capital Lisbon to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city centre of Porto, the emerging wine region of Alentejo and the pristine waters of the Algarve, it’s easy to see why millions of tourists visit Portugal each year.
Capital Lisbon is one of Portugal’s undoubted jewels. From its iconic Belem Tower to the futuristic Parque des Nacoes, its attractions run the gamut from old-world to the ultra-modern. Its tram lines are particularly popular, trundling through some of Portugal’s oldest cityscapes.
In the north, historic Porto is the country’s second-largest city and one of its most vibrant. A bustling mercantile metropolis, the city is renowned for its energy and industry, as well as for the popular Port wine produced in the nearby Douro Valley. The Algarve, on southernmost coastline, is one of Europe’s most popular travel destinations – known for its pristine beaches and sublime summer weather.
