Touted as Europe’s west coast, Portugal has a long cultural heritage, that today is combined with its unique geographical location, historic monuments and cosmopolitan lifestyle, attracting holiday makers from across Europe and around the world.

For information on Portugal, we have included some links to Tourism Information sites.

Officially known as the Portuguese Republic, Portugal is on the Iberian Peninsula, on the south-western edge of Europe. With Spain as their neighbour to the north and east, Portugal fronts on the the Atlantic Ocean, with the Atlantic archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira also part of Portugal.

There are 18 districts on mainland Portugal: Aveiro, Beja, Braga, Bragança, Castelo Branco, Coimbra, Évora, Faro, Guarda, Leiria, Lisbon, Portalegre, Porto, Santarém, Setúbal, Viana do Castelo, Vila Real and Viseu – the name of each district is that of the district capital. For administrative purposes, Portugal is divided into 308 municipalities, that are further subdivided into civil parishes. The Azores and Madeira are governed as autonomous regions.

Climate
Defined as having a Mediterranean climate, Portugal is warm and sunny, with mild winters. The climate is influenced by a range of factors depending on whether you are near the coastline or further inland. The high season is from mid-June to mid-September, when temperatures are pleasant, although during July to August places like the Algarve, the Alentejo and the upper Douro Valley can get extremely hot. The climate in some parts of the country is more semi-arid or Steppe climate, whilst both the Azores and Madeira have a subtropical climate. Snowfall also occurs, mainly in the interior north and central parts of the country.

Popular tourism destinations include Lisbon, the Algarve and Madeira. Other regions that have become popular include Greater Porto and Northern Portugal, the Azores and Alentejo.
