Before our trip to Portugal, we didn't know so much about it (history, population, geography).Right now, I think Portugal is becoming the place to go. Perhaps they are investing a lot of money in tourism, and I think (after my trip) it's a good idea as Portugal has many things to offer. Our idea was to explore Portugal, from Lisbon to Faro, and that's what we did :)We enter Portugal by Lisbon, and we were surprised at how beautiful Lisbon is. It is a cosmopolitan city, we loved their food and its nightlife. We discovered "Fado Music" in a very authentic Fado Restaurant. After expending a few days in Lisbon we rented a car and traveled to Faro passing through Coímbra (we just spent 1 day in Coimbra). Coimbra is located in a valley with a magical aura. We specially liked the city centre and the University (It is one of the oldest in the world).Our last stop was Faro, which is located in a region named Algarve. Their beached are amazing, really. We drive all over the most impresive beaches: Praia de Albandeira, Praia do Anção, Praia do Amoreira, etc.It was a fantastic trip, highly recommended.
