The Peneda-Gerês National Park is the only National Park in Portugal (even though many Natural Parks, Protected Landscapes and Reserves do exist throughout its territory). It's situated in Portugal’s High Northwest, on the border with Spain, with an area of about 72.000 hectares, comprising a ridge of mountain ranges, such as the Gerês, Soajo, Amarela and Peneda. The Park also comprehends the Mourela and Castro Laboreiro Plateaus. The region that it includes is predominantly of granite mountains, having several watercourses running through its lovely territory. Part of the mountains suffered human interventions in continuity since the Neolithic time
This beautiful Park has a very rich fauna and flora that the park aims to protect, while preserving its value to the existent human and natural resources.
Porto is located in the north of Portugal's continental territory, on the steep northern bank of the River Douro, which is crossed by the D. Luís I bridge. For the visitor, most points of interest are shoe-horned into a fairly small area between the riverside, Ribeira district, and the central Avenida dos Aliados.
Porto is a really beautiful city, as this amazing beauty can be seen in its streets, its architectures, its museums, its leisure spaces, its esplanades and its shopping areas which run from the traditional to the modern and exclusive.
Porto wine is present in the city in a multitude of forms and sensations: you can surely get to know it and try it, but you mustn't ignore it or forget it.
From the peaceful landscape of the vast Ribatejo open plains to the extensive golden Alentejo wheat fields, the peaceful landscape is nothing but a curtain that opens on to an unimaginable heritage from the ancient times.
Alentejo is located in the interior of Portugal, being part of the frontier that Portugal has with Spain. It is known because of the existence of several interest points such as Beja, Elvas, Estremoz, Évora and so on.
In this region, the cuisine is also particularly varied and flavourful. From "Açorda de bacalhau" to "Migas com carne alentejana" there's absolutely everything for all tastes. This is something that certainly defines this region.
Algarve is situated in the south of Portugal, being mostly known for its beaches and temperature.
The region is an extensive and pleasant one, with a Mediterranean climate, marked by the smell of the sea at low tide and the scent of wild flowers.
Algarve is usually divided in three distinct regions: the East, the Centre and the West. They are all very different, even though they are all pretty close to each other. The East is a very alive and kind of mystical, being the place where most people chose to stay during their vacations. The Centre region is, for sure, one of southern Europe’s most scented, empty countryside. The West is known as being one of the best places to do extreme sports such as surf. In this region anyone can easily find wind-brushed cliff paths and superb swimming coves.
Algarve's backdrop is composed by some of Europe's most beautiful beaches, from where you can admire the rocky coastline and the playful shadows they cast on the sand. After the enchantment of the landscape, you can discover the aromas and flavours of the traditional Algarve cuisine.
