Portugal, the land of sun, sea, and delicious seafood! This small country on the western edge of Europe is packed with history, culture, and natural beauty. From the charming streets of Lisbon, to the stunning beaches of the Algarve, there's something for everyone in Portugal.

First-time travelers to Portugal should definitely check out the historic city of Lisbon, with its narrow cobblestone streets, colorful buildings, and world-famous trams. Be sure to take a ride on the iconic Tram 28, which winds its way through the city's historic neighborhoods. Don't miss the Belem Tower and the Jeronimos Monastery, two of Lisbon's most famous landmarks.

For those looking to relax on the beach, the Algarve region in the south of Portugal is a must-see. With its crystal-clear waters and miles of golden sand, the Algarve has some of the best beaches in Europe. Don't miss the Praia da Rocha in Portimao or the Praia da Marinha in Carvoeiro.

Portugal is also famous for its delicious seafood, so be sure to try some traditional dishes like bacalhau (salt cod) or cataplana (a seafood stew). And of course, no trip to Portugal would be complete without trying some of the local wine and port.
