"Portugal" Top 5 Page for this destination Portugal by micas_pt

Portugal Travel Guide: 20,265 reviews and 58,611 photos

It seems that I finally made up my mind about doing a page about my country. But I'm not sure where to start, seems that there is so much to say and so many places to visit, ... :-)

I think this page will be under permanent construction and update!!

As it was difficult to start building the page and organizing information, I classified my tips as:

. General Tips: an overview of Portuguese districts and some other general features such as listing Portuguese sites classified by Unesco

. Must See: the capital cities of the districts I mentioned previously

. Off the beaten path: all other cities, towns and villages that I enjoyed visiting. Some of them as definitely not the traditional concept “off the beaten path” (Algarve’s towns for instance), but this was the organization of information I could do.

All capitals, cities, towns and villages named here were already visited by me. I won't talk about places I have never been.

Last update on my tips: 26th September 2004.

    Your tips and very beautiful photos evoke nice memories from my visits to Portugal. Thanks for visiting my very rudimentary Ireland page, I certainly have a lot more to write about than dangers and warnings... I'll try to develop the Ireland pages before your trip! My Israel pages are much more detailed...

    Congratulations for your page! I found a lot of information here. I will come there soon, most probably not before the next year. This year is already booked. Do you think that comming in Lisbon for few days just before Christmas may be a good ideea?

    What a fantastic page this is on Portugal - you have it covered from every angle! I just wish that I had been able to read all this valuable information before visiting in 2004. By the way, Portugal is still one of my all-time favourite destinations!

    Just one word: FANTASTIC! (country, your tips and pictures). I am lucky to go to Cascais for the Euromeet 2010 and after I am going to visit the northern part of Portugal I skipped the previous time... I can't wait!
