What's Portugal Like?
Portugal is a land of surprises, with many interesting landmarks both natural and man-made. The Algarve is world-famous for its dramatic cliffs and rock formations, and of course we can't forget those gorgeous beaches and crystal clear water. A cruise down the river Douro which lies along the border with Spain is like a trip back to a more genteel time as you take in 18th century casas and sample the excellent regional port wine. Lisbon's Belem Tower is probably the best known example of Portugal's Manueline style, named after King Manuel I who commissioned the tower in the 16th century. Oporto is the wine capital of Portugal and is another great place to try that port wine while looking at amazing architecture including some lovely old Portugal hotels. And finally, Lisbon's Jeronimo Monastery has more breathtaking architecture and is the resting place of explorer Vasco de Gama.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Portugal
Portugal is a very friendly, welcoming country so it shouldn't take too much effort to have a great time here. Although many locals speak English, it doesn't hurt to learn a few words of the language, even if it's just a quick "obrigado" (thank you) if someone has helped you out. Salted cod is a hugely popular dish; try it at one of the many fantastic restaurants, and there's the aforementioned port wine. Portugal also has a tradition of religious festivals called romarias, each of which honor the patron saint of a particular region. Lavish costumes are involved, and you can celebrate well into the night before retiring to one of the luxurious Portugal hotels we can offer you. Trust Venere to help you get the best deal on your hotel so you can concentrate on making vacation memories you will treasure.
