Portugal has rivaled its larger Iberian cousin, Spain, for centuries – in the Renaissance, the two nations raced each other around the world in search of new lands, and the rivalry continues to this day as Portugal has emerged as one of the hippest spots in Europe. Many vacationers come here to see a few headline attractions here, such as Lisbon, Sintra, Porto and Portugal’s world-famous beaches, but travelers shouldn’t limit themselves to the status-quo itinerary as Portugal offers so much more. Visit Viana do Castelo, a small northern town that lies on the Rio Lima estuary and has great access to beaches and the surrounding countryside, or any of the smaller southern beach towns known for sand and swell such as Faro, Albufeira or Lagos. No matter where you decide to spend your time in Portugal, try some of the fried fish or grilled meats while enjoying Portugal’s own twist on Iberian nightlife (drinking in public areas is allowed in many cases).

Description:

Many vacationers come here to see a few headline attractions here, such as Lisbon, Sintra, Porto and Portugal’s world-famous beaches, but travelers shouldn’t limit themselves to the status-quo itinerary as Portugal offers so much more.
