City of Seven Hills

Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Castelo dos Mouros and Monastery of Alcobaca. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Basilica de Nossa Senhora do Rosario de Fatima and Capela dos Ossos. Venture out of the city with trips to Evora (Cathedral of Evora (Se Catedral de Evora), Centro Historico de Evora, &more), Batalha Monastery (in Batalha) and Cabo da Roca (in Colares). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Rua Augusta, take in the views from Ponte 25 de Abril, and appreciate the history behind Arco do Triunfo.

Unvanquished City

Called "Oporto" by many, the city of Porto along the Duoro River lent the country and Port wine their names. Portugal's second-largest metropolis dates back to the 4th century, representing both a rich cultural past and industrial present through its architecture and style.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Bom Jesus do Monte and Palacio da Bolsa. Your inner history buff will appreciate Centro Historico de Guimaraes and Old Cathedral of Coimbra (Se Velha de Coimbra). Change things up with these side-trips from Porto: Se de Braga (in Braga), Guimaraes (Guimaraes Castle, Paco dos Duques de Braganca, &more) and Santuario de Santa Luzia (in Viana do Castelo). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Santuario Nossa Senhora dos Remedios, do a tasting at Graham's Port Lodge, buy something for everyone on your list at Forum Aveiro, and pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco.
