Are you still looking for the perfect destination for your next beach holiday? Located on the Iberian Peninsula in the southwest of Europe, Portugal is awaiting visitors, who are willing to get to know a new culture and who want to discover one of the best national cuisines in the whole of Europe. With more than 3,000 hours of sun every year, you will have plenty of opportunities to swim in the Atlantic Ocean at the Algarve or to take sunny strolls through Portugal’s cities.
In Lisbon, Portugal’s most frequently visited city, you can discover Portuguese culture or learn more about the history of the city, while spending the afternoons and evening relaxing on one of the city’s sandy beaches. If you fancy a nice glass of local wine, then a trip to Oporto in the north of Portugal is highly recommended. Not to be left out either is Coimbra, where the oldest university of the country can be found. Some of its buildings are classified as UNESCO World Heritage sites, as is Sintra National Palace close to Portugal’s west coast. Overall, Portugal boasts itself of a wide array of historic buildings and sites of cultural importance, including the Roman Temple and the small chapel Capela dos Ossos in Évora.
