Some of our Favourite Things to do

Whether you are visiting Portugal or moving to the sun drenched country indefinitely, there is without a doubt no shortage of things to do whilst there. Whether you're a foodie, an adventurer or a high octane adrenaline junky, there is something to suit everyone's needs. So, without further ado, here are Buy Portugal's top five things to do in Portugal.

Taste the Famous Port Wine

Quite possibly Portugal's most famous export, the port wine or 'port' produced within Portugal is a far cry from the type of stuff you can expect to find gathering dust at the back of your cupboard. To truly experience authentic port in all of its exceptional, full bodied glory, then you need to visit Porto itself and sample it directly from source on one of the producers' cellar tours. There are several different tours and tastings events available, or simply head down to your local wine merchant in Portugal to grab a bottle of something produced locally, we are sure you won't be disappointed.

Visit The Country's Capital Lisbon

Number one on the list of things to do should be taking a trip to the capital city of Lisbon. This bright and beautiful city brings with it all the expected excitement of a thriving cosmopolitan combined with more traditional medieval architecture and history to explore. In the city, there is no shortage of things to do including riding the historic tram 28 to view the various neighbourhoods of the capital and taking in the whole city from the famous St. George's Castle lookout point. No matter what you enjoy doing, Lisbon has something for everyone.

Soak up The Sun on The Beach

No matter where you are situated in Portugal, you will be able to soak up the warm sun. However, some of the best places to enjoy the sun in Europe have to be the golden beaches in the Algarve region. Here the beautiful beaches and blue waters are so relaxing, you may never leave! And why should you? Emigrating to the Algarve is a lot more affordable than people may think.

Visit the Many Monasteries of Portugal

Portugal is a country steeped in history and religious significance, particularly of the catholic faith. Within Portugal, there are many monasteries that can be freely visited and appreciated by the public. Quite possibly the most famous monastery in Portugal is Fatima. Home to the famous 'chapel of apparitions' where three children saw apparitions of the Virgin Mary, this religious site has attracted visitors for a number of years and visiting it is a must for anyone who enjoys history.

Visit The Douro Region for a Tour

The Douro region of Portugal is undeniably beautiful. Its vast landscape of grape cultivating fields is the perfect spot for a visit and tour, offering breath taking views and fascinating insights into the production of port. If you have the time to visit North Portugal, then touring the Douro region is an absolute must in order to experience a true staple of Portuguese life that has remained unaffected for years.
