Europe - Portugal
Of the People's Porto to the green Sintra, city of gardens and villas, Evora - the -Moorish vineyards in the Douro, Portugal focuses on a small area many wonders! If parts of the coastline, especially the Algarve coast has paid the arrival of mass tourism to the high price of concrete, nature remains unspoiled and beautiful in many parts of Portugal. Open to the world, original, warm, this ancient maritime power has a discrete charm contrasting readily with Spain, its exuberant neighbor. And what of Lisbon, the capital, at the western tip of Europe, pleasant and quaint, modest and capricious, secret and dynamic.
