With over 800 years of history, Portugal is considered one of the oldest countries in the world. It has been influenced for centuries by a variety of people and customs, the result of Roman and Moorish invasions that have left their traces in the rich legacy that can be found throughout Portugal. Portugal may not be a Mediterranean country, but its culture and lifestyle reflect this. Rich in fresh, quality food, healthy living standards and prioritizing time with family and loved ones. As a socially-oriented country, all locations offer plenty of indoor and outdoor activities all year round. Portugal is widely recognized as part of the "World Heritage", a country rich in history and culture. Monasteries, convents, churches, exceptional monuments, historic centers and unforgettable landscapes can be visited from north to south. The sanctuary of Fátima was blessed in 2017 by Pope Francis and is a place worth visiting, being one of the largest Catholic pilgrimage sites in the world, attracting 5 million visitors every year. In terms of music, you can't talk about Portugal without mentioning fado. In some ways, it's traditional music wrapped up in feelings such as loss, love, sadness and longing.

The Portuguese will always have their arms wide open to welcome you. Friendly, humble and polite, they are known for being very hospitable, friendly and proud of their country and culture. The vast majority speak English, which is a great advantage for communicating with tourists.

The climate in Portugal can be considered generally mild due to the influence of the Mediterranean. It varies according to the season and considerably between the different regions, according to altitude and proximity to the sea. Winters/autumns are generally mild, with some cloudiness and a few rainy days, while springs/summers are dry, sunny and warm. Inland cities generally have a colder winter, although it is still mild compared to the rest of Europe. Some snow falls in winter in the Serra da Estrela mountains. During the summer months, Portugal is blessed with cooling sea breezes that make the weather very pleasant, with an average of 12 hours of sunshine a day. This is the best time to enjoy some time outdoors and explore some of the best beaches the world has to offer. Light cotton and linen are ideal during the spring and summer days and some warmer clothes during the fall and winter. Whenever and wherever you go, always take a jacket with you, as the nights can be cool.

Portugal is recognized as one of the safest countries in the world. Crime rates are very low, violent crimes are rare and often concentrated in isolated neighborhoods. No natural disasters are expected and terrorist threats are very unlikely. However, while it is safe, there are some precautions you need to take as a tourist. As one of the main tourist destinations, pickpockets are common in the main cities, especially on the busiest streets, buses and metro stations. Never leave your personal belongings out of sight or your bag open and accessible. If you're traveling by car, avoid having your valuable belongings inside, especially if it's a rental car or campervan. Always keep your passport with you. In Portugal you'll feel safe and secure so you can focus on the best this country has to offer.
