Lima, Porto, and Fatima
Lisbon has a liveliness that cannot be ignored. In Alfama, listen to Portuguese music streaming from the medieval, winding streets, or grab your lunch in a cafe steps away from the ruins of the Carmo Convent or the Chiado Museum. Feel the echo of Portugal’s former power when you visit Jeronimo’s Monastery, and unwind on the sandy beach along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Travel to the romantic city of Porto, which sits along the stretch of the Rio Douro. Receive a guided tour of the Ribeira historical district, visit Oporto Cathedral and get lost in one of the most beautiful bookshops in the world – Lello e Irmao. Venture outside of the city life to the Grutas de Moeda in Fatima, a mysterious and scientifically important collection of caves that was discovered by two huntsmen in 1971. Once a colonial superpower, Portugual’s influence reverberates across the globe.
