Portugal Travel Guide and Portugal Travel Information - TravelPuppy.com
Portugal is a country of astonishing beauty and diversity, not to mention clear blue skies and very friendly, courteous people. Pick any destination and the view from your window might be a rugged stretch of windswept coastline including Cabo do São Vicente, Castelejo, Cabo Espichel, a pristine beach where fishermen mend their nets beside brightly painted sardine boats in Albufeira, Bordeira, Praia do Camilo or a cobbled street overlooked by dazzling whitewashed houses with wooden balconies and red-tiled roofs.

Portugal is a land of infinite options where you can mingle with the crowds in one of the more sophisticated beach resorts or wander through the medieval quarters of historic cities like Lisbon, Porto, Braga or Coimbra. To explore the more remote beauty spots stay overnight in a romantic pousada in a converted farm, monastery or manor house enjoying a wonderful setting – an amazing bargain.

If it’s an activity holiday you’re looking for, Portugal is one of Europe’s premier golfing destinations while the tennis schools are second-to-none. You could try your hand at big game fishing or horseriding, learn how to windsurf or water ski.

Other unmissable experiences include Fado (Portugal’s answer to soul music), country fairs where centuries-old folk traditions are lovingly reenacted, Port wine tastings and mouthwatering fish suppers.

Portugal is a country ripe for discovery.
