Portugal is a country that for many years lived in the shadow of its neighbour, Spain, but also had a period of unbelievable prosperity, which left a lasting mark in the form of wonderful historical monuments. The country's coastline is also extremely varied, and the rock formations and beaches in Algarve are among the most beautiful in Europe. The ocean here is colder than in the Mediterranean, but the Atlantic beaches with high ocean waves are admired by nature lovers and are a great joy for fans of surfing. The Portuguese regions are either densely saturated with magnificent architectural monuments, especially around Lisbon and Porto, or they are wild and rural, with a predominance of natural attractions. Portugal is famous for fado music, which you can enjoy in specialized fado performance restaurants in Lisbon.
