Travel around Portugal
The mild climate, the 3000 hours of sunshine a year and the 850 km of wonderful beaches that are bathed by the refreshing waters of the Atlantic Ocean make Portugal a perfect destination for any occasion and a calm and serene landscape far from the hustle and bustle of the major European capitals. Whether it’s a whole family, a couple or for business, Portugal has 88,889 km2 to explore, between the mainland and the archipelagos of Madeira and the Azores in the Atlantic Ocean.
The country with the older borders in Europe boasts a great variety of landscapes, a wealth of leisure and recreational activities, in addition to a singular historic and cultural heritage associated with an intangible heritage full of tradition and that make Portugal an authentic and genuine country. A perfect fusion of traditional and modern work together to create a unique opportunity for cultural and religious tourism. Offering "sun and sand", "nature" and "spa therapy", the natural patrimony of Portugal is increasingly becoming a focus of interest.
From the north to the south of the country, the regional gastronomy, simple and home-made, enriched with monastic desserts and mouth-watering wines, table wines, liqueurs or digestif aperitifs, is associated with the innate good nature and hospitality of the Portuguese, adding the finishing touches to quality tourism resources and services, whether it is for a weekend getaway or for a longer holiday.
Like the landscapes, the people, the gastronomy and the customs, the climate in Portugal also varies from one region to the next, influenced as it is by the relief of the land, latitude and its proximity to the sea, resulting in mild winters and hot dry summers. In the Serra da Estrela mountain, the highest point of mainland Portugal (1991m), snowfall is a common occurrence creating the perfect conditions for winter sports.
