Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.

The allure of the beaches and the town's historical center draw visitors to Lagos, a coastal destination in the Barlavento region of the Algarve.

Called "Oporto" by many, the city of Porto along the Duoro River lent the country and Port wine their names. Portugal's second-largest metropolis dates back to the 4th century, representing both a rich cultural past and industrial present through its architecture and style.
On the 5th (Fri), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, take in the exciting artwork at Belomonte 20, look for gifts at Garrafeira do Carmo, then don't miss a visit to Livraria Lello, and finally get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa.
