The historic city of Óbidos is a beautiful and unique location in Portugal. The city is built within the walls of an ancient castle and has many small restaurants with delicious food. If you want the complete experience you should stay in the Pousada do Castelo, a hotel located in the towers of the castle!

According to a local saying "who makes fishing nets, makes bobbin lace", since both lace and net making were traditional ocupations of women from fishing communities . You still can see many ladies working together on door steps or in the street during summer months, making the exquisite Peniche bobbin lace.

Coimbra is Portugal's University Town. And don't let the drab outer suburbs fool you. Once you get down by the river and wander up the hill, the vibe is pretty cool. We particularly liked the combination of elevator and funicular that got us up to the University area.

If you want sun, sand and a small beach town, Lagos is perfect! It's small but cozy and has a few interesting finds. It's got historic landmarks, great weather and a relaxed atmosphere.

A Great place to go. Some fantastic scenery and the people are very nice. The jeep safari is a must. The trip takes you up into the mountains and you get the most spectacular views. You have to be prepared to share the ride with other tourists but it is well worth it.

i found personally the portugese people did not have a great personality towards english speaking tourists, temperature in the evenings got very cool which was surprising. faro was a very quite laid back place not your bustling buzzy place.

Gayle and I spend a nice afternoon in Tomar, a charming and historical town on the banks of the Nabao River. The main attraction for us was the Knights Templar Castle and Convent of the Order of Christ. It's a huge and magnificent ensemble of 12th- to 16th-century architecture and art and a World Heritage Site. Back in town (and ...

Sagres is popular for a reason - it's spectacular coastline and year round sunshine. The beaches are beautiful and there's a host of scenes to choose from and even some where privacy is not at a premium - good for the first time topless set . And if you're an exhibitionist, well there's a beach for that too, isn't there?

Small village in Algarve, much quieter than Albufeira but with a wonderful marina full of mega yachts and sailing boats. More than one golf court in the area and a long sandy beach in front of big (and slightly dated) resorts.

Lisbon is a big city, but that doesn't mean you have to go far to sink your toes into the sand. Most tourist overlook the nearest beach area, Caparica, and head northwest. Though I suggest visiting Caiscas and the great beaches to the north, Caparica is 10-15 on public transport. You can't beat it.
