Cascais is a lovely town near Lisbon, actually one of the most attractive resorts on the capital's coastline. If you are in Lisbon the best way to go there, if you don’t have a car, is by train.

A cruise on the River Douro - Portugal
A cruise on the River Douro

My July 2008 vacations were great, a 6 days cruise in Douro river and it was so beautiful, if you come to visit Portugal don’t miss this kind of trip. The Douro's valley is amazing!
The Douro vinhateiro is an area of the Douro Valley in Portugal that was classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Patrimony Sight. These reaches of the Douro have a microclimate allowing for cultivation of olives, almonds, and especially grapes important for making the famous Port wine, so... don't forget to taste the fabulous Porto wine ;-)

Beja - Portugal
Beja

Beja is a lovely town located in the Baixo Alentejo region. It is a place with a great history founded by Julius Caesar. I was there just a few hours but enough to explore the beautiful 14th century castle and wander around the beautiful cobbled streets.
And, I almost forgot to say about the great lunch I had there on a restaurant nearby the castle where I ate the traditional Alentejano meal. Don’t miss!

Évora a town to not miss! - Portugal
Évora a town to not miss!

What can I say of the lovely ancient walled town of Évora?
I just spent a couple of hours there but was enough to see why Évora is a Unesco site. I managed to see some precious buildings like the Diana temple, which is Corinthian-style Roman temple is popularly believed to have been dedicated to the goddess Diana. I visited also beautiful cathedral and walked by the beautiful alleys that surrounded it.
Évora is located in Alentejo region and it is about 62 km west of the Spanish border. Well, I have to return there for sure because it has lots to see!

Address: Alentejo region
