Favorite thing: If you are interested in visiting sites that are classified by Unesco, Portugal has some, both on the mainland and islands:
> Mainland:
. Lisbon: Tower of Belem and Monastery of Jeronimos
. Batalha: Monastery of Batalha
. Tomar: Convent of Christ
. Évora: Historic centre
. Alcobaça: Monastery of Alcobaça
. Sintra: Cultural landscape
. Porto: Historic centre
. Côa: Pre-historic Art
. Alto Douro region: Wine region (Vineyards)
. Guimarães: Historic centre

> Islands:
. Azores: Central zone of Angra do Heroismo
. Madeira: Laurisilva forest

I will add some tips on my pages regarding these places, except for Madeira, Angra do Heroismo and Coa, which are places I never visited.
