On the western edge of the continent, Portugal is home to culturally rich cities influenced by its leading role in the Age of Discovery, as well as an abiding Catholic faith that it shares with nearby Spain. Our specialists will draw on their knowledge of the country to plan your tour of Portugal, where you could hear melancholy fado music in Lisbon, taste port wine in Porto and the Douro Valley, and sample the traditional custard tarts of Belém.
They can also plan a Portugal vacation that explores the country’s complex history. Visit Moorish alleyways in Évora, Roman ruins and a Baroque pilgrimage site in Braga, and the haunting unfinished chapels of Batalha. You can also see where Henry the Navigator launched Portugal’s great nautical age, explore the storybook landscapes and palaces of Sintra, and visit some of the many churches, clad in the azulejos (tiles) that reflect the country’s Islamic heritage. We can also help you find the least-crowded beaches in the sunny Algarve.
