Portugal in Just One Word

Portugal's most popular cities and towns described in just one word or image.

Portugal is a country full of wonders — charming castles, pristine beaches, and a metropolitan capital spattered in remnants of the past.

Its buildings are covered in thousands of intricately decorated tiles in countless colors and patterns. Its food is humble, elevating local ingredients and simple flavors to their greatest potential — and its pastries are divine recipes concocted by nuns. At times, its people are serenaded by intense ballads driven by feelings of saudade and at other times, called on to tap their feet in sync to cheeky folk music.
