Portugal

A trip to Portugal, an outstanding country in the south of Europe.

Portugal is a country which attracts many visitors because of its historical cities and attractive beaches. The most famous city is its capital Lisbon. This is a truly impressive city with many landmark buildings and nice areas to go for a stroll. The other most visited city is Porto which is located in the North. The most recognizable landmark there is the Dom Luis bridge over the river Doura and has become the face of the city. It is possible to walk over the bridge and enjoy the views over the old town. There are many more smaller cities which are worth visiting and give you that more real Portuguese feeling. Braga is one of those places and can be visited as a day trip from Porto which is more than worth it. Another city which is a must to visit as a day trip is Sintra, located roughly one hour from Lisbon. It is home to a medieval castle, a beautiful palace and has a charming old town center. Some of the other cities to visit in Portugal include Coimbra, Evora and Mafra. Getting around Portugal is easy as it has a good train system and long distance buses are readily available.
