Medieval castles, cobblestone villages, captivating cities and golden-sand beaches: the Portugal experience can mean many things. History, great food and wine, idyllic scenery and blazing nightlife are just the beginning. Portugal means coming face to face with the great mysteries of the past. You can gaze upon 20,000-year-old stone carvings in the Vila
Nova de Foz Côa, watch the sunset over mysterious megaliths outside Évora or lose
yourself in the elaborate corridors of Unesco World Heritage Sites in Tomar, Belém, Alcobaça or Batalha.
Spread across steep hillsides that overlook the Rio Tejo, Lisbon offers all the delights you’d
expect of Portugal’s star attraction, yet with half the fuss of other European capitals. Gothic cathedrals, majestic monasteries and quaint museums are all part of the colourful cityscape, but the real delights of discovery lie in wandering the narrow lanes of Lisbon’s lovely backstreets. The Lisbon experience encompasses so many things, from enjoying a fresh
pastry and bica (espresso) on a petite leafy plaza to
window-shopping in elegant Chiado. It’s mingling
with Lisboêtas at a neighbourhood festival or
watching the sunset from the old Moorish castle that
is an experience .
