Portugal Destinations

Portugal Vacations

Summary
Portugal Vacation Packages brings you into what could arguably be the most debated country in the world. This territory encompassing Portugal and nearby parts of countries has been fought over since the late prehistoric times, and some of the first humans. Conquered, re-conquered, built, and rebuilt, Portugal has seen it all, and some of its buildings have still lived to tell the tale.
In Lusitania, you can find a crumbled Roman temple sitting in the middle, which is a prime example of just how ancient some parts of Portugal are, and just how many ethnicities and empires have occupied this place at least once.
Crime in Portugal is at a minimum, but for females travelling alone, it is wise to be extra careful, just in case.
Culture
With Portugal Vacation Packages, the immense and extremely diverse culture of Portugal is completely open to you. Portugal currently plays large roles in the cinema and the world of wines.
In exploring Portugal, you will notice a ridiculous amount of architectural influences from throughout history, from Celtic to Roman to Gothic to even Moorish, and this has led to such a variety of buildings in Portugal that you may feel like this country is a slice of all of the others, forgetting its own heritage...however, Portugal has its own heritage, which is very much intact via its folklore and its Manueline architecture, a sort of Portuguese version of Gothic architecture.
Exploration
Back in the 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, and even the 16th Centuries A.D, the Knights Templar had extreme power in Portugal, and their massive headquarters was constructed in what is today Tomar. The Convento de Cristo, being the Templars’ Headquarters, is a sight that should not be missed on your trip through Portugal with Portugal Vacations.
Conimbriga is fortunate, as the ancient ruins of a Roman locale can be found here, in an adjacent part to a museum...however, the most imposing aspect is the massive, hastily-constructed Roman wall running through buildings like a massive sword slash through the fabric of the region, built in a defensive effort with no consideration for the surrounding buildings.
In the town of Viseu, you can find Se, Portugal’s oldest cathedral, dating all the way back to roughly 1070! To think that, if you stepped into the building now, you’d be in a 900+ year-old structure that was still standing, thanks to masterful restoration work.
Food
With your Vacation Packages in Portugal, you will be fortunate enough to taste the ridiculously diverse cuisine of this ancient country. Dry cod is one of the most popularly-consumed foods, and hundreds of recipes have been made from that base.
Porto, one of Portugal’s oldest and most historic cities, is the sole true producer of port wine, much of which is exported to the rest of the world.
Portugal is also one of the world’s biggest producers of olive oil (having nothing on Italy and Greece, of course).
Nightlife
In its own special way, Portugal’s ancient architecture lights up and hooting and hollering can be heard in the many bars and nightclubs, and with Vacations in Portugal, you can join the nightlife too.
Cinco Lounge stands out particularly well, due to having a master mixologist at the helm for this place, and between Lisbon and Faro, you also have Columbus Bar, Pensao Amor (set inside an old brothel and catering to the memories of then), Galeria Santa Clara (in Coimbra), Noobai Cafe, A Capella (in Coimbra), Bon Vivant (in Lagos), and Primeiro Andar.
