Portugal has been inhabited for thousands of years and its national boundaries have been defined for eight centuries. This long history is reflected in a particular culture that is the result of the mixture of the many peoples who settled here and those that the Portuguese encountered on their journeys of Discovery.
Manueline art, tiles and fado are unique expressions and genuine symbols of the Portuguese, but also a contribution to World Heritage. There are 24 such classifications by UNESCO in Portugal, including monuments, landscapes and intangible heritage.
By choosing a region, an itinerary or a specific theme, you can discover a unique heritage and different landscapes, all within a short distance, which still retain the authenticity of local customs. Moreover your tour will be complemented to perfection by the traditional cuisine and the customary hospitality in rural accommodation.
If you wish to be more active, you can take part in outdoor activities such as canoeing, canyoning and cycling, or, if you prefer something a little more contemplative, there’s bird watching , whale and dolphin watching or walks along one of the routes and trails to be found all over the country.
There are many different types of landscape, but the setting of Almourol Castle in the middle of the River Tagus is certainly one of the most inspiring. Castles and old palaces, farms and manor houses are generally very popular, both for those more romantic moments and to discover the country’s historical heritage, and the customs and traditions of each place. And there are landscapes and monuments in Portugal that are World Heritage Sites, which is always a good reason to visit.
