Guide Licensing Information



The Portuguese Republic is a European nation that shares the Iberian Peninsula with Spain and is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the south and west, with a few small island chains included in its territories. Portugal is one of the warmest European countries, with a climate similar to that of southern California. Warm, sunny weather is but one reason that makes Portugal one of the 20 most visited countries in the world. 

Gorgeous coastlines, sleepy fishing villages, historical cities and landmarks bring tourists to enjoy the beauty and the attractions of Portugal. Lisbon is the capital and one of the most popular places to visit in Portugal with many UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Belem Tower was the ceremonial gateway to Lisbon built in the 16th century and famous for being central to the voyages of discovery of explorers like Ferdinand Magellan. The Castle of Sao Jorge is another Lisbon historical landmark that can be seen towering over the old town district.

The Casa de Musica and the Lisbon Oceanarium offer more contemporary entertainments for visitors to Lisbon, and the Estadio do Dragao, Dragon Stadium, welcomes fans to enjoy a Portuguese football game. Praia de Rocha offers incredibly beautiful beaches, and Peneda Geres National Park is the place for nature lovers who enjoy hiking or riding a garrano pony to explore ancient shepherd trails.
