Portugal, a land of sun and beauty
By Leslie Brown
Portugal is a beautiful country, neighbour to Spain, on the Iberian penninsula of wouth-west Europe. It offers a dizzying array of contrasts to the visitor, from the sun soaked golden beaches of the Algarve, to the region of Porto in the north, home, unsurprisingly, to Port Wine.
Portugal is a country of about 10 million inhabitants with islands in the Atlantic Madeira and the Azores. Portugal used to have colonies in Africa and across the world but it has granted independence to these countries but you may still see the influence in present day culture in Portugal.
In addition to wonderful sights and attractions, Portugal is blessed with a great climate all year round. Even with the sun blistering down from the sky, the presence of the Atlantic ocean off the west coast moderates the hottest days somewhat, giving it a somewhat more forgiving climate than, say, the center of Spain, during high summer.
You can choose to visit the very popular main tourism area in the south of the country, around Faro. There are many facilities and resorts to choose from. Or you can head up north to the Douro Valley, which is where the grapes that go into the famous Port wines come from.
It is very easy to get to Portugal for your holiday. The country is well served by airports at Faro, Lisbon or Porto. Most of the main airlines have flights to these locations.
Food in Portugal is generally made from an abundance of simple, fresh ingredients. Due to the position of the country, with it’s long Atlantic coastline, Portugal has a rich fishing history, so, as you might expect, fish is a staple. Rice was introduced to Portugal by the Arabs during their conquest of the peninsula in around the 8th century AD. As a trading nation for most of it’s history, spices play an important part in Portuguese cuisine; piri-piri sauce from the far east is a particular national favourite.
In the south of the country, the food is influenced by the Moors, and you will find such things as almond and fig desserts.
Where to go and what to do
With a huge atlantic coastline, Portugal is blessed with mile upon mile of great golden sandy Beaches. Beaches stretch from the warmth of the sunny Algarve in the south, with year round sunshine, all they way up the coast. Lisbon has many fine beaches within easy reach of the city centre, and the Estoril coastline is known as the Portuguese Riviera. The silver coast stretches from Lisbon to Porto with windswept sandy beaches that are great for windsurfing. You will be spoiled for choice!
Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal, with it’s fine suspension bridge crossing the River Tagus looks very reminiscent of San Fransisco. While there, visit the Belem Tower and the quaint Alfama district.
Golf is a big tourist attraction in Portugal, as, due to the excellent weather, the game can be played year round..Most of the golf courses are centered around the Algarve region; for example, the luxury estate of Quinta do Lago. Courses are open to members and non members alike, as most courses depend on tourists for their revenue, so you will have no problem getting a round in.
Motorhomes are available for hire in Faro,Lisbon and in Porto and some one way trips can be made from Faro to Porto or Lisbon or vise versa.
