From Sintra to the Sea


Make the most of a trip to Lisbon with so much to see, from Sintra to the sea..

Begin your trip in Sintra, one of the most magical places in   Portugal, and fill your lungs with the fresh mountain air, exploring the parks of Monserrate and  da Pena.
Discover the streets filled with old houses and small palaces that spread over the hillside and the Palácio da Vila, with its huge conical chimneys forming the predominant feature of the town’s historic centre. Travel through history by wandering through the different rooms of this marvelous building and see a beautiful and important set of Mudejar “azulejos”. Continue Reading…

This is the Alentejo


Golden plains that disappear out of sight combine with the sun and the heat to impose their own slow, steady rhythm. This is the Alentejo. Inland, the vast golden wheat fields undulate in the wind; along the coast, un-spoilt beaches appear rugged and unexplored.

In Alentejo, the brute force of the land dictates the march of time.  Perhaps this is why the region’s culture has its own particular character. Just visit Évora and discover its Roman roots and the delightful charm and heritage to understand why the city has been classified as a World Heritage Site. Also check out the Diana temple  and some of the city’s churches to understand the history.

But don’t travel northwards or southwards without exploring the region’s coastline. There the landscape consists  high sheer cliffs sheltering tiny beaches which are truly spectacular.

The Azores


Think of a place to the west, where the nature and vegetation are pure and untouched, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Do you know where we’re talking about? The answer is the Azores, which offers you this and much more besides.

The Azores are nine different islands of adventure, nine delightful surprises. You can see dolphins and whales frolicking in the sea or volcanic landscapes covered in green. Then there are the stunning, lilac-coloured hydrangeas that provide hedges for the meadows; the blue and green lakes; the craters of extinct volcanoes and the steam rising from the land. The volcanic activity here means that you can even have your meal cooked under the ground!

Inland you can go mountain climbing and walking through the countryside. Or you can stick to the coast and go diving and swimming.  In fact, it’s probable that you’ll be totally enchanted by the Azores.

Get to know Lisbon’s historical quarters


Alfama is one of the oldest quarters in Lisbon. It has maintained its Arab structure, with its labyrinthine streets, courtyards and lanes. The Sé (Cathedral) is wonderful, and the Feira da Ladra (flea market) also takes place here.

Next to Alfama are the quarters of Castelo and of Mouraria. Throughout the month of June, during the Santos Populares (Patron Saints) celebrations, these quarters are packed with music, dancing and food.

Bairro Alto is today one of the city’s most animated quarters, with trendy bars, restaurants and shops.

Chiado is one of the city’s most attractive quarters.

It has long been a cultural hot spot, something illustrated by its theatres, literary cafés (like A Brasileira), antique bookstores and the Museu do Chiado (Chiado Museum).

Bica, another of Lisbon’s historical quarters, has been home to the Bica lift since 1892, which passes between lines of houses situated on a street where the pavements are actually tiny, narrow stairways.

The Baixa (downtown), rebuilt by the Marquis of Pombal following the 1755 earthquake, is a commercial and financial district characterised by the geometrical layout of its streets.
