São Miguel Island, Azores in Portugal

The westernmost country of mainland Europe, Portugal is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and Spain. The country's long coastline and Mediterranean climate make it a perfect summer travel destination. Sand and surf aren't all Portugal has to offer. Pay a visit to historical sites such as the Convento de Cristo or the monasteries of Batalha or Tomar; listen to the mournful but beautiful Fado melodies; and experience the culture of capital city Lisbon.
