Discover one of the oldest European nations and let yourself be amazed by a cuisine as rich and varied as its landscape, where the good taste in wine is also king.
Two cities, two rivers.
Lisbon of the seven hills, capital of the Pombaline buildings, a city full of light on the banks of the Tagus, with tiled façades and medieval narrow streets in the typical neighbourhoods of Alfama and Bairro Alto.
Climb up to the castle, enjoy the views and lose track of time at one of the many belvederes around the city. Take a ride on the tram and let yourself be inspired by the Tagus or, who knows, the melody of fado.
Once in Porto, city of charm inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, sharing its name with the famous wine, take a tour and find a different architectural style in each corner.
Walk on the streets, talk to the locals and fall in love with Ribeira, where the buildings fill the day with colour. From Lisbon to Porto, these two cities will capture your soul.

Portugal, a small country, full of true sanctuaries that honour our fauna and flora and that have been preserved since the beginning of time.
Mountains, plains, beaches bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, rivers and their tributaries, fill this destination with experience options, making it ideal to enjoy nature and outdoor activities. Observation and contemplation of fauna and flora, sports and radical activities, there are several options.
The whole territory has great diversity of landscapes and nature, counting among others, a national park, parks and nature reserves that provide beautiful routes for walking and mountain biking. Serra da Freita, which has the geological phenomenon of the “Pedras Parideiras”, is unique in the world or the Natural Park of Montesinho that is part of the “Terra Fria Transmontana” and provides beautiful routes for walking or mountain biking.
It was, in the past, a land of passage and conquest, of struggles between Christians and Arabs at the time of the formation of Portugal, when the capital of the kingdom was Coimbra and the way to the affirmation was the south.
It was also a land of defending the independence threatened by the invading armies of Napoleon, detained in the mountain range of Bussaco. Today it is a region that remains central.
However, its vineyard landscape has serenely watched all these convulsions of the past, because its fruits have always been appreciated. Today the wines of Bairrada continue to be resistant, with body and character.
The cuisine of this region is also strong and needs a wine that goes with it, that in the end cleans the mouth, the “baga”, vineyard with its origin in Bairrada, plays its role well.
“The sublimated Douro. The prodigy of a landscape that ceases to be so by the force of being undone. It is not a panorama that the eyes contemplate: it is an excess of nature. Terraces that are footprints of titanic men climbing the slopes, volumes, colours and modulations that no sculptor, painter or musician can translate, horizons dilated beyond the plausible limits of vision. A virginal universe, as if it had just been born, and already eternal for harmony, for serenity, for silence that not even the river dares to break, either sneaking away behind the hills, or in the background reflecting his own astonishment. A geological poem. The absolute beauty.” Miguel Torga
Alentejo, although very rich, has in itself many secrets kept, such as the Alandroal where time almost stopped, Monsaraz, a pearl of Alentejo, as if almost touching the stars, on top of its more than 300m of altitude, dominates the surrounding plain.
To know this region we must feel it, the Alentejo and Vicentine Coastline is one of the best preserved in the whole Europe. Breath-taking beaches, imposing cliffs, biodiversity, an authentic culture and a mild climate make Southwestern Portugal a nature tourism destination.
… BEST VINEYARD REGION TO VISIT
There is something profoundly reminiscent and liberating in the Alentejo landscape, in the endless space, in the immensity of the undulant plains, in the wide sky of an immaculate blue, in the infinite horizon… and in the people, in the quiet and proud people of Alentejo.
Maybe that’s why this has been voted as the best wine region in the world to visit, in a poll promoted by USA TODAY.
The landscape runs smoothly between the vineyard and the cereal fields, painted in deep green in the end of winter, or straw-coloured in the end of spring, or ochre in the hot summer months. The unmistakable lines of cork oaks and holm oaks marks the horizon.
