    Portugal today

    From Porto’s dazzling architecture and the vision of vibrant Lisboa reigning atop her seven hills, to the crimson cliffs of the Algarve down south, the remarkable coastal country of Portugal is bursting with gems to be discovered.

There’s nothing quite like losing yourself while wandering through Lisboa’s Bairro Alto with a belly full of the freshest seafood and local wine, as images of medieval charm and blue painted tiles swirl in your head, only to turn a corner and catch a glimpse of the glimmering sea. Once the world’s richest and most powerful empire and now the vibrant home to powerhouse wine regions, incredible art museums and excellent surfing, Portugal is a true traveler’s dream.
