Portugal may be small, but it certainly packs a punch. Crammed onto this sliver of sun-drenched land at the westernmost point of Europe you will find intricate late-Gothic monasteries and cathedrals, wild windswept beaches, Roman ruins, fertile vineyards and edgy urban nightlife. Shaped by a grand colonial history and renowned for its peaceful global relationships, Portugal is home to a proud and warm people, whose passion for their culture is abundantly clear.

Escape to the island of Pico, found in the azure-edged Azores archipelago, for a glimpse of the country’s volcanic past; marvel at the towering cliffs of the Algarve, as you bask in the summer heat; and indulge in fresh seafood and sweet local wines in the nation’s capital, Lisbon. With world-class surfing and golf courses, numerous UNESCO heritage sites, vast and varied wildlife as well as vibrant metropolitan skylines, Portugal is overflowing with inspiration; the rest is up to you.
