Reasons why Portugal is your next travel destination:
The antiquated charm of Lisbon
This ethereal sunshine city lives in a Latin fairytale of antiquated manners and traditions set against the present scenery of the Atlantic Ocean. Witness the century-old wooden trams and iron funiculars that still roll and resound their way through the city.
Downtown Porto has a faded sophistication shaped in two by the Douro river. The seaside community has viewed something of an awakening in recent years, home as they are to a thriving cluster of restaurants, cafes, and bars which offer an authentic slice of local life.
Available across the country, Portugal’s national drink (port or porto) is, particularly in its nominative home. Any bar and restaurant in town sell the fortified wine.
A spectacular bookshop
Back in the 1990s, JK Rowling of the famous Harry Potter series taught English in Porto and was a regular at the Livraria Lello bookstore. This bookstore is one of the most famous shops in the city. Apparently, an inspiration of the Hogwarts Library in her Harry Potter books is from the bookshop’s decorative bookcases, carved wooden ceilings, and fancy staircases.
Freshly-made pastel de natas
Nowhere does custard tarts or pastel de natas called locally quite as Portugal does. Pasteis de Belém in Lisbon as most would say is the best place to try and taste this delicacy. Queues for the sweet, rich and perfectly crisp tarts often stretch along the pavement so if you wanted to taste it, patiently wait for your turn.
Lisbon is the continent’s sunniest capital city, boasting an average of 2,799 hours of sunshine a year, settled on the western edge of Europe.
