Portugal Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 74%, Portugal is the world's best destination that forever seems to live in the shadow cast by its mighty neighbor to the east. But in reality, Portugal has more than enough world class destinations to hold its own with any country in the world. One of these is the Sanctuary of Fatima, the mystical place where three young girls were reported to have seen the image of the Virgin Mary and is a must see for no other reason than it potentially represents a link to the beyond. Then there is the museum dedicated to Christopher Columbus. A visit here will give your more historical information about the world's most famous explorer than you probably need (or possibly want). Then there is the coast, which extends for hundreds of kilometers and is perhaps best represented by the amazing Algarve Coves, where the warm waters of the Atlantic form the perfect backdrop for lazy days basking in the sun. Believe us when we say that Portugal casts its own shadow too - and a big one at that!
