Portugal Tourism

Sitting pretty at the western brink of the European mainland, Portugal retains the rural charms that its other continental brethren have relinquished. It is a land of flavorsome cuisine and fine port wine, romantic beaches, and medieval villages sitting atop scenic hills. The pretty ports along the Tajo and the sheer cliffs of the Serra de Estrela, coupled with the Moorish quarters and high rises of Lisbon, make for an altogether delightful traveling experience.

You will be pleasantly surprised by the variety of the Portuguese experience – variety in food, in music, in landscape – and in the way of life itself.

Vasco da Gama Bridge, a cable-stayed bridge, is located just outside Lisbon . The bridge is 17km long 10km of which pass over water, making it the longest bridge in Europe.

Did you know? Portuguese is the official language of 9 countries - Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Portugal, Guinea-Bissau, East Timor, Cape Verde, Sao Tome and Príncipe and Macau.

You have to be careful while dining in Portuguese restaurants- they will serve you appetizers you haven’t asked for and later present you the bill for them! So make sure you act in a firm manner if you don't want to order any appetizers.

When in Portugal, make sure you have enough change - no one breaks a twenty Euro bill easily here!
