about this trip
Discover ancient castles, Roman ruins, groves of lemon and almond trees, quiet whitewashed villages with kind and gentle people. Next up, pay a visit some of the UNESCO World Heritage sites in Lisbon such as Jeronimo’s monastery and Belem Tower. Just when you start to indulge in the country's history, an experience of the town of Sintra, a summer house for Portuguese kings for six centuries, wouldn't be a shallow proposition as you can be one with their perspective this way. Take a trip to Portugal’s beautiful “Silver Coast,” a spectacular region filled with sleepy villages, rich vineyards and age-old castles to visit the native people and their culture. Proceed to picture-perfect Obidos where whitewashed houses are held snug by medieval city walls. After that get access to the medieval walled city of Evora to visit the 2nd-century Roman temple to Diana then travel to the famous Algarve and discover the secrets of the 16th-century fortress at Sagres. Journey to Faro, the gateway to the Ria Formosa protected lagoon landscape and finally, inspire the photographer in you when you visit, Azeitao, a charming agricultural village known for red wine, olive trees and beautiful country estates.
