After visiting this wonderful country, I wanted to provide a few of my favorite reasons why I loved Portugal, and maybe convince others to visit lovely Portugal!

Portugal became a recognized independent country in 1143 A.D. With hundreds of years of history, Portugal is a delight to visit for history lovers.


The Portuguese people are some of the friendliest locals I have encountered throughout my travels!
