Portugal

This country offers to the traveller an unique experience, which is possible only in a country with its history and geography.
Portugal was the craddle of sailors that extended the Portuguese traditions all over the world and became the main harbour for exotic goods and products from the five continents, which resulted one of the biggest empires of History, during the XVI century.
Despite being a small country, there are wonderful contrasts; its inner countryside, tied to centenarial traditions; its fishermen seaside, that once were also adventurers and explorers; its modern cities as Lisbon or Porto, linked to their majestic rivers Tejo and Douro, fertile fields that offer to the world a wonder of nature, the Porto wine.
