Towards Portugal’s Algarve

Spela upp avsnitt13 min

It is difficult to get further west in Europe, without leaving the mainland, than Portugal. And – strangely enough – the country is not in the top five visited by Swedes. Most of what we look for on holiday can be found here: sun, good food, cool nature and cultural experiences.

Foz Coa are Europe’s oldest rock carvings, dating back 25,000 years, and found as recently as 20 years ago, when they ended up almost immediately on UNESCO’s List of World Heritage Sites. There are hundreds of carvings and thousands of figures.

Lissabon

The Portuguese city is home to 2.5 million people and has lots of things to do. We start our 24 hours with a famous and classic pastry – Pastéis de Belém – and then continue to more modern addresses.

Lissabon

Beyond big squares and avenues in Lisbon

Just as in all European capital cities, you can look behind grand statues and impressive buildings to find the centre, the real heart of the city. Take a walk along the narrow alleys in Alfama, Mouraria or Bairro Alto, step into a genuine restaurant and enjoy Portugal’s soul when it is sung to you, accompanied only by two guitars. That’s what we did.

Benagil Sea Caves Algarve Portugal

Algarve’s beaches and magnificent nature

Algarve is the southernmost region in Portugal and is a well-known holiday destination for many Europeans. Partly due to its latitude, of course, and partly because it is just over two hours from the capital Lisbon. But maybe mostly because of the, to say the least, cool rocks along the beaches. If you come here, don’t miss the Benagil Sea Caves.
