You can be sure of a warm welcome to Portugal. This hospitable country on the southwestern edge of Europe has a host of attractions for visitors – a superb climate, splendid sandy beaches, beautiful scenery and a rich history.
Many ancient civilizations contributed to the wealth of historic cities and monuments that are a constant feature throughout the country.
Early Portuguese navigators helped to shape the world and brought back cultural influences, reflected in the country's magnificent palaces and museums.
Portugal's contrasting tourist regions include the green and mountainous north, the cosmopolitan Lisbon coast and Algarve's splendid beaches. The lush sub-tropical island of Madeira and the idyllic Azores islands, have their own distinct characteristics.
