The country's capital stands breezily on the banks of the Rio
Tejo. The city's low skyline, natural atmosphere, and pleasant
blend of architectural styles make it a favorite place to visit
while you are holidaying in Portugal.
The capital has a number of attractive buildings and museums,
including the Museu Nacional do Azulejo, which contains superb
displays of decorative tiles, the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga,
which houses the national collection of works by Portuguese
Far north of Portugal, lies this wilderness park equipped with
spectacular scenery and a wide variety of flora and fauna. It
is extremely popular with Portuguese day-trippers and holidaymakers.
In addition, there are plenty of good short-distance trails
with places to swim along the way, as well as facilities for
horse riding, mountain biking and canoe rental.
This expansive panorama stretching from the city of Porto all
the way to the Spanish border is one of Portugal's picturesque
highlights. Covered with port-wine vineyards on the hillside,
the valley is interrupted only by the occasional blindingly
white manor house. The meandering roads along the banks of the
Rio Douro are always crowded with day-trippers from Porto and
the river is tamed by five dams and is now navigable along its
entire length, making boat cruises, an attractive way to enjoy
the breath taking views.
Situated in Alto Alentejo, the walled town of Evora is one of
the architectural gems of Portugal. Landscape of olive groves,
vineyards, wheat fields and brilliant spring flowers, sets in
charming air. Due to one-way backstreets being narrow, the car
wing mirrors have the potential to be lethal.
The focal point is the Praça do Giraldo, and its attractions
include the Sé (cathedral), which has a museum of ecclesiastical
treasures; the picturesque Templo Romano; and the Igreja de
São Francisco, which contains a ghoulish ossuary chapel
constructed with the bones and skulls of several thousand people.
Lagos, on the south coast of the Algarve, is one of the country's
most admired tourist resorts. Most visitors are drawn to the
superb beaches, which include Meia Praia, a vast strip of sand
to the east, and the more isolated Praia do Pinhão to
the south. The town has plentiful facilities for renting bicycles,
mopeds and horses, and there are boat trips from the main harbor.
Apart from the sun and sand, the resort's other highlight is
the Museu Municipal, which has avant-garde displays of religious
treasures, handicrafts, and preserved animal fetuses.
