PORTUGAL IS BEAUTIFUL

PORTUGAL IS BEAUTIFUL

posted in: TRAVEL | 7

I recently travelled to Portugal for the first time. During my short stay I visited Lisbon, Sintra and Cascais.

Whilst in Lisbon, I took a bus tour around the city which allowed me to see its impressive architecture and the main attractions like the 25th April Bridge which reminded me of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Not far from the bridge there is the statue of Christ the King, a Catholic monument overlooking the city. It was inspired by the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

If you like fairy tales I recommend visiting Pena National Palace in Sintra. It’s an UNESCO World Heritage Site, a national monument and one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. The palace is truly magnificent and its colours are out of this world.

The final destination of my trip was an adorable little town of Cascais where I had a lovely meal in a local seafood restaurant Maria Pia overlooking the Cascais Bay. The food was amazing and I had an opportunity to taste Portugal’s famous and delicious green wine.
