Pristine beaches, rich culture, gorgeous nature, and excellent wine are just a few of Portugal’s tourist attractions. One of the best cities to visit in Portugal is the capital, Lisbon. Considered to be a budget-friendly city, Lisbon is known for its delicious cuisine, narrow cobbled streets, and century-old colorful wooden trams. Portugal’s second-largest city, Porto is similar to Lisbon with its colorful old buildings. While Lisbon is known for its beaches, Porto is home to rich culture and an abundance of incredible museums. Mosaics and azulejos adorn many buildings of this charming city. Travel back in time with a trip to Coimbra. Home to Roman ruins and medieval buildings, it also boasts the famous library Biblioteca Joanina, considered one of the most beautiful in the world. If you feel like you’re in a fairy tale when visiting Sintra, there is a good reason - the father of fairy tales Hans Christian Andersen once called this charming city home.
