Cities in the Algarve - Promenade of Lagos, PortugalPortugal is a country with many faces and contradictions. Portugal has a fascinating and magnificent history that can still be traced today through its monumental buildings and cities. Churches, castles and palaces tell their story and are scattered throughout Portugal.

The former great power is now one of the oldest but also one of the poorest countries in Europe. Maybe that's where the magic of Portugal lies.

The most popular holiday destination is the Algarve with its enchanting beaches: From secluded rocky bays with their fascinating rock formations to long sandy beaches to the rough west coast... from quiet, romantic bays to lively city beaches to water sports beaches..., the Algarve offers its holiday guests a large selection of different beaches.

With its small towns it offers everything you need for your vacation. The small streets with their cafés, restaurants and shops invite you to stroll and exude their southern charm. And if you're looking for "nightlife" you won't miss out either. Bars, discos and street artists are very popular, especially in high season, and invite you to long nights.
