Portugal may not be the largest country in Europe, but what it lacks in size, it certainly makes up for in terms of history and style.
Stunning Algarve coastlines meet picture-perfect towns and cities here in Portugal. The culture varies between the more rural and the more urban areas, with Lisbon, for example, enjoying global recognition as a centre for fashion.
Many of the smaller towns and villages are still brilliantly rooted in their medieval past, and it's an amazing step back in time when you visit places like Evora, Monsanto and Coimbra. The country is awash with art galleries, museums and small, quirky shops, as well as restaurants, bars and an atmospheric nightlife.
Whether you're in search of a beach holiday or a city break, Portugal can offer you both, typically at the same time. Ultimately, it's a destination to suit all tastes, but don't expect half measures - Portugal does it properly!
