Here on a one night stop over. Have always had an interest in Lisbon but somehow has never captured my imagination like other European options. What a surprise. Think of it as a European San Francisco minus the tech boom. Artsy and a little gritty but packs a lot of no nonsense style and is very enjoyable.

A city located one hour south of Porto, sometimes called the little Portuguese Venice, as it is surrounded by some channels. Their traditional boats, called "moliceiros", where used on Salt transportation from salinas, where they were produced. The city is also known for its Art Noveaux buildings and famous egg pastries called Ovos Moles! Love it.!

If you thought your professors were tough, consider that this university, founded in 1290, once had its own court of law and, naturally, its own prison for students and scholars (under the library). One of the oldest continuously operating universities in the world, the institution grew and evolved for more than 700 years within the old town. It now includes ...

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.

This is a little town with a big reputation in the surf community. With full-time residents numbering in the hundreds, Peniche has made a name for itself on the international surfing circuit for the (sometimes tragically) great waves at Supertubos beach. On the less extreme side, Peniche is also increasingly becoming a popular vacation spot for Brits looking for something ...

The town of Óbidos is located on a hilltop, encircled by a fortified wall. It is known as the "Wedding Present Town" because it was a gift King Dinis gave to Queen Isabel on their wedding day in 1282. Appropriately, Gayle and I spend part of our Honeymoon here. Obidos is an extraordinarily romantic and picturesque place. This includes cobblestone ...

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 ...

I would rank Sagres one of my favorite places on earth. Not that the town is special by any means, but there are at least 5 gorgeous beaches surrounding it--some good for surfing, lounging, swimming, wind surfing. Also nearby are the cliffs and lighthouse of Cape St Vincent.
