The holiday industry in Portugal is often over shadowed by Spain but the focus on Spain has ensured that Portugal still enjoys an untouched feel about it. The rich history of Portugal emanates from the discovery of sea routes to many parts of the world and the influences of that historical culture can be seen by viewing the many ancient monuments and buildings throughout Portugal. Whilst most holidays in Portugal will take you back through history, the bigger cities also express modern Portuguese culture.
There are a number of world heritage sites and other cultural delights to keep tourists busy throughout Portugal which is very attractive in terms of beauty and diversity. Tourists like you visit Portugal to enjoy its sandy beaches, fishing villages and un-ending stretches of stunning coast line. The Costa Verde is really very beautiful.

For accommodation, apart from an hotel, you can also opt for a stay in traditional bed and breakfast establishments, apartments, villas or renovated farmhouses to get an idea how the previous generations enjoyed their Portuguese lifestyles.
