At the gates of Europe, Portugal has been a fundamental stage in the history of successive civilizations for several thousand years and has played a great role as a world power, especially in the Age of Discovery. At present, this vital curriculum translates into a rich historical-artistic heritage, which adds to the diversity of its natural environment, its festivals and its Portuguese cuisine.
Located at the mouth of the Tagus River, Lisbon is the capital and the largest city of Portugal. It is one of the great European cultural centers and its neighborhoods, marked by the topography of the seven hills on which it sits, offers all kinds of options: history, architecture, traditions, modernity or fun.
The heart of the city is the Baixa, which was practically in ruins after the earthquake of 1755. Today it shows an urbanism of squared streets, work of the Marquis of Pombal, in which the National Theater, the Praça do Comercio and the Rossio stand out.
Other places of interest in this city, which moves at a fado pace and with the presence of the nostalgic tram 28, are the Cathedral, the Castle of San Jorge, the Jerónimos Monastery, the Belém Tower, the Chiado neighborhood or the Park of the Nations.
Being in Lisbon, a visit that you can not miss is the town of Sintra, just 30 km from the capital. It is known especially for its palaces and buildings of great size, embellished by gardens and their natural environment. To name a few, the Pena Palace, the Castelo dos Mouros, the National Palace of Sintra or the Quinta da Regaleira, all near our boutique hotels

In the Central Region, Coimbra is a university city par excellence, as well as the cradle of the Portuguese kings. Located on a hill on the banks of the Mondego River, Coimbra preserves Roman constructions such as the aqueduct and the cryptoportico, as well as medieval buildings, dating back from the time it was the capital of the country. Admire the headquarters of the University, the Cathedrals, the Church of Santa Cruz, the Plaza del Comercio, or the Botanical Garden.
In the same region, Aveiro is known as the Portuguese Venice for its canals that run through the center of the city. The neighborhood of Beira Mar is the most popular, where the essence of its history is concentrated, with its narrow streets, typical traditional architecture and the smell of salt. Without forgetting the tiles, present in all types of buildings.
Another historic city is Braga, one of its main milestones in the creation of the archdiocese of Braça in the third century, with its Cathedral, considered one of the most important temples of Portuguese Romanesque.
Évora, in the south, is an unmissable visit to the Alentejo. Declared a World Heritage Site, it presents artistic styles from each stage of its history, hence its nickname "city-museum". The archbishop's palace, the cathedral, the church of Sao Francisco or the Roman Temple are some of its most outstanding monuments. In the Évora region you can also find the Crómlech de los Almendros, one of the most important megalithic monuments in Europe.

Portugal exudes nature on all sides, from the mountains of the north, to the gentle hills and plains of Alentejo in the south. To get to know this diversity better, it is worth visiting one of its natural parks, such as Peneda-Gerês, Duero Internacional, Sierra de la Estrella or Tajo Internacional.
The Portuguese coast is extensive, covering most of the Atlantic coast of the Iberian Peninsula, as well as the islands of the Azores and Madeira. The cliffs and sandy areas combined create unique beaches of great beauty, like those of Algarve, a.ka. the Golden Coast.
As an intimate neighbor of Spain, Portugal also boasts Mediterranean cuisine, enriched by the influences of its former colonies in Asia, Africa and America. Among its main ingredients are bread, garlic, oil and wine. Meats, fish and cheeses can also be found on the table.
Discover the Portuguese territory through its typical dishes, such as the green broth, the feijoada (stew of beans with meat), the Portuguese stew, the cod, the gazpacho or the chanfana. For dessert, the sweet star is the unrepeatable cakes of Belém.
