November 2011 /
Portugal is a country blessed with an amazing variety of landscapes, customs, cuisine, and architecture. There’s genuinely something for everyone.
Let’s start with the architecture. The monastery at Alcobaça is a wonderful example of Gothic design, while the one at Batalha, built in the Manueline style, is equally awe-inspiring. In the north, Baroque dominates, but you’ll also marvel at the Palace and Convent of Mafra, near Lisbon. And last but not least, everywhere you go in Portugal you’ll see traditional blue and white ceramic tiles.
For nature lovers Portugal truly has it all. Start by spending some time in one of our many nature reserves, or exploring the local countryside. On foot, bike, or down river marvel at the dizzying variety of flora and fauna. And take a trip to Madeira and the Azores, places of outstanding natural beauty.
And for those of you who like a burst of adrenalin, the surfing resorts of Cascais, Ericeira and Baleal are world famous.A great way to get a feel for the real Portugal is to stay in rural accommodation. From the manor houses and stately homes of the north, to the simple stone of the Centro de Portugal region, to the whitewashed farmhouses of the Alentejo, warm hospitality greets you everywhere.
And finally, the cuisine. From our largest cities, to our smallest towns you will never be short of a good table to sit at and mouth-watering local delicacies to savour. From the freshest of fish, to sumptuous meats and heavenly deserts, Portuguese cooking is superb. And what better way to wash it all down than by enjoying one of our magnificent wines?
