Some countries entice you from the very first moment you set foot in them. Portugal is unquestionably one of them. The country of melancholic fado, Fernando Pessoa, and explorers, which boasts 365 cod dishes (one for each day of the year) and grilled sardines and has some of the most fascinating beaches in the Atlantic Ocean, suitable for water sports enthusiasts (hello surfers!). A country with a colonial background, Mediterranean beauty that lies somewhere between Europe, Brazil, and Africa.

Out of a fairytale
Do not leave Lisbon without paying a visit to the fairytale town of Sintra. The colorful Palacio da Pena with the lovely gardens filled with rare flora along with many other palaces. However, one of our favorites is definitely Quinta da Regaleira palace, where you can wander its secret tunnels, buildings, and subterranean wells that would enthrall any visitor.
A tropical getaway
And if you believed Portugal had no islands, you were mistaken! The nine islands that make up the Azores archipelago, as well as Madeira, represent nature in its finest form. Ideal for nature lovers as well as those looking for a one-of-a-kind, off-the-beaten-path adventure.
