On the extreme southwest of the European continent, in the Iberian Peninsula, is located the amazing Portugal, a Country filled with beauty, tradition and charm, with much to see, know and appreciate.

Portugal is home to fresh breezes off the Atlantic that are lightly kissed with the scent of the sea, day after day of sunny, temperate weather that makes doing anything at all outdoors a simple joy, traditional, colorful boats that bob in small harbors after bringing in the fresh catch that now awaits your dining pleasure, and where ancient history has infused every aspect of this picturesque country filled with hospitality, tradition and modern convenience.

Influenced by the Ocean, and influencing the oceans and the world discoveries, Portugal presents, in the mainland, an extensive coast with 1230km long, in the Azores archipelago with 667km and in the Madeira archipelago with 250km of extension.

Portugal is one of the most ancient Countries in Europe, with quite ancient borders, becoming independent in the 12th century, thanks to the first Portuguese king D. Afonso Henriques.

Considered to be a Country with small dimensions, Portugal houses in its limits such distinctive and unique features, with considerable differences in climate, geography, geology, culture, gastronomy, accent, and so much more…

Portugal: a place of unique recesses, with surprises on every corner, delighting all visitors with its wonders and the famous hospitality that can be found even in the biggest and developed towns, where tradition is still preserved and cherished.
From the cold and wet climate in the north to the wet and dry in the south, from the never-ending ocean with its typical coastline fishermen villages to the hidden mountainside small villages, and also the paradisiacal islands of the Madeira and Azores archipelagos with overwhelming landscapes and panoramas… All this and much, much more can be found in charming Portugal.
