  Colorfull boats
by Franberu

Since the main economic activity in the country is commercial fishing the visitor is not surprised by the large float of the country.
The most amazing particularity of it consist of all these colorfull boats at every docks. Proudly painted with brilliant colors these boats are a touristic attraction by themselves. Many monuments are remembering the Portuguese discoverers like Vasco De Gama and many others. The most spectacular one is the Belem Tower in Lisboa port.
