Beginning in the south, many people start their vacation in Lisbon. This is the heart of modern day Portugal and the cultural center of the nation. It is home to many of the country's finest museums and historic buildings, along with quaint neighborhoods. Visitors can wander through the streets and artists studios of Barrio Alto, or spend a day sightseeing and soaking in the atmosphere of the Old Quarter.
There are numerous day trip options from Lisbon, but one of the main sightseeing destinations is the town of Sintra. Set in the hills outside of Lisbon, this town is centered around the Palacio Nacional de Sintra, with its cone shaped towers. From here it's easy to explore a number of interesting sights, including the fairy-tale-like Palacio de Pena and the ruins of Castelo dos Mouros. During the summer months the Costa do Sol is another popular area near Lisbon known for its beach resorts. Sun seekers will find no shortage of things to do.
Equally impressive, in its own unique way, is the city of Porto. The old town is picturesquely set on a hillside overlooking the River Douro. The Riberia area, with its colorfully painted houses, is one of the city's main tourist attractions. Around the Praça da Ribeira small shops and restaurants have set up in old restored houses. There are also many possible excursions from Porto.
Somewhat off the beaten path in Portugal are the islands of Madeira and the Azores. Madeira has a pleasant year round climate and is well set up to handle visitors. It is a hot spot for Europeans from northern counties who come here in the winter months to escape from the cold. The main city is Funchal, which is also a big cruise ship port. The Azores, also highly dependent on tourism, are laid back islands of green rolling hills and mountains.
Pay a visit to beautiful Algarve this touristing hotspot with its beautiful beaches and good restaurants is absolutely one that you must visit.
What are Portuguese Women like
Like many people from southern Europe, Portuguese women from Madeira too are blessed with vivid Mediterranean beauty. Their dark eyes, long eyelashes and thick dark hair are some of the most striking physical features. These traits coupled with their tanned skin due to living in sunny areas makes Portuguese women incredibly attractive. Traditional Portuguese culture encourages women to be curvy and while women of today are aware of the health problems brought on by obesity, they don’t think much of starving themselves in order to attain size zero figures. All the better for it since Portuguese women with their sensuous curves are far more attractive than the stick-thin figures on many of Europe’s fashion runways.
Typical about Portuguese women
• Did you not notice that all Portguese women got lots of curves! Most of them have a nice brown tan with black or dark brown hair. The women from this country are quite exotic and love to take care for them self, to make sure they looks are outstanding!
• Portuguese women like to have a bussy life. Shopping, Fashion, and rather regular duties in life. The most modern women out there, love to stay at parties, dance and meet hot men.
• Most of the portoguese women are Catholic so make sure you will keep this in mind. The most of the women do not marry before they reach they age of 25 years.
• Just like spanish women, the Portoguese are very social females. Next to spending a lot of time with their family and friends they love to swim, tan and stay at the beach side. Their are about the same men/women but the women often prefer a tradional way of life from the moment they are going to marrry.
