Though it shares the Iberian Peninsula with Spain, Portugal has a language, culture and landscape all unto itself. From the northern hills and lush forests cascading down to the arid deserts of the Alentejo to the manicured golf courses of the Algarve, Portugal is a European delight.
Portugal exudes an old European charm as a country that has been largely untouched by tourists. Aside from the commanding allure of Porto and Lisbon, Portugal's best kept secrets are the small, medieval towns and hilltop villages with incredible views of a rolling countryside. If you're interested in discovering Portugal's true magic, try picturesque towns like Sintra or Aveiro.
Portugal's extensive coast and dramatic cliffs that fall into the sea provide gorgeous seascapes and excellent beaches. The Algarve is possibly the most famous beach destination in Portugal and is home to exclusive luxury resorts and some of the best golf courses in Europe.
