Portugal, once a powerful kingdom with vast colonies overseas, is still one of the most popular travel destinations. It is a home to many of the greatest culture and art centers like the former capital of Aviz dynasty Evora, the ancient aqueduct Agua da Prata, palaces of Basto, Cadaval and Manuela dukes, Das Damas gallery and churches of San Francisco and John the Baptist. Madeira island is also well worth a visit. This tiny volcanic island boasts the most geologically dramatic landscapes and its subtropical temperatures mean its bursting with exotic flowers and colour. Its unique cuisine, famous wines and fresh sea breeze will make a trip here unforgettable.
Heritage goes back to Celts, Romans, Moors and Christians who have all left their historic mark. From the 20,000 old stone carvings in Vila Nova de Foz Coa, to UNESCO world heritage site in Toar or Alcobaca, or the Roman Citade de Ammaia and the list could go on. or even simply miander through some of the medieval hill top villages like Monsaraz on the Portugal-Spanish Border.
Portugal is one of the safest countries in Europe, but you do need to be midnful of petty theft in crowded places, public transport, markets and beaches. Don’t carry large sums of money. Leave it securely in a hotel safe. Money you carry should be stored in a belt bag or inset pockets. Avoid having all your cash and credt cards in one place in your wallet, backpack or jeans back pocket. Forest fires can be common in Portugal. That’s why it is strictly forbidden to make a fire in parks or beaches. Even a lit cigarette thrown out of a car window can lead to a serious incident - and a heavy fine for you too.
