Portugal is the oldest state on the Iberian Peninsula and one of the oldest in Europe. It is among the top 20 most-visited countries in the world.
As it covers almost the whole west coast of the Iberian Peninsula, Portugal has a variety of landscapes, with green mountains in the north, spectacular slopes and falls in the middle, and a near-desert landscape in the south.
It is a landscape of beaches and high mountains, but also of deep, verdant valleys and rolling hills dotted with stone-built villages.
Whether it's Lisbon, Porto, the Algarve or Madeira, Portugal has something for everyone.
Lisbon is the capital city of Portugal and the second-oldest capital city of Europe . The city is saturated with rich history found everywhere from the roads to the marvellous architecture.
Porto is Portugal’s second city and a colourful mix of medieval relics, extravagant churches with lots of wine caves open for tastings. Madeira’s extreme east is a nature reserve with immense volcanic rocks that are streaked with reddish hues.
The Algarve is blessed with a superb coastline and some of the country’s loveliest beaches, the province enjoys hot, dry summers and short, mild winters. The popular and more developed central region offers lively coastal resorts, first-rate tourist amenities, and some of Portugal’s best golf courses.
