A stop in Lisbon is necessary for anyone traveling in Portugal. The capital city’s most famous resident is Cristo Rei, a 100 meter tall statue of Christ that stands watch over the Tejo River and the city. Traveling on the city’s Tram 28 is also a treat unique to Lisbon. The vintage trolley cars and low fares will give you a whole new perspective on the city.
One of the most popular activities in Portugal is going to the beach. All of the water sports you’d expect are carried out on the country’s beaches: from surfing to sun-tanning! The can’t-miss beach in Portugal is surely Praia da Falesia, where a sliver of white sand beach separates the ocean from towering orange rocks.
Portugal is a romantic, historic, yet fun-filled country just awaiting your arrival!
