What a glorious privilege to spend six weeks in such a stunning country. We marveled at the gorgeous tile buildings and drank shots of ginja in Lisbon, ate a giant bowl of paella and learned about the spies who had lived in Cascais, sipped wine in the Douro Valley had one of the best meals ever in Porto,
We fell totally in love with Lagos, a city in the Algarve with winding cobblestoned roads in the Old Town and fantastic hiking along towering cliffs.
Please see our tips for enjoying Portugal where we know you will fall in love too.
