Oporto

The town is second largest city after Lisbon. Oporto sits astride a great gorge at the point where the River Douro enters the Atlantic, and although it is mainly industrial, the city centre has plenty of charm with some art treasures, medieval cathedrals and museums, along narrow streets sporting wrought-iron balconies and bright splashes of potted geraniums.


Vila Višosa

Vila Višosa is about 55km/34mi northeast of ╔vora, on the slopes of hills covered with orchards. Everything around Vila Višosa's peaceful broad streets lined with orange and lemon trees seems to be made of marble. Benches, pavements, framing of windows and doorways, and even the toilets in the bus station are made of this shining "white gold," the local marble from the enormous quarries outside the town.


╔vora

Is one of Portugal's finest and most delightful cities. It's a true open air museum with a large number of wonderfully preserved monuments and buildings of public interest that led UNESCO to protect it as a World Heritage Site.


Obidos

Is on a hill rising out of an agricultural plain, Ëbidos is actually one of Portugalĺs picturesque gems. From its lofty centre one gazes upon expanses of vineyards speckled with whirling windmills and terracotta-roofed homesteads.


Cabo da Roca

The town is a cape at the western coast of Portugal in the Lisbon Region. It's the westernmost point of the European continent.


Figueira da Foz

Figueira da Foz is home to a gigantic sandy beach that is the country's largest, stretching for more than 3km (2 miles), and so wide, that it is a good five minutes walk across the sand to the sea. It was a venue for the 1996 World Surfing Championships.
