National Geographic Traveler: Portugal 3rd Ed

Travel to Portugal to discover the country's finest food, drink, and fado, walk Lisbon's ancient streets, and bask on the Algarve's beaches--with National Geographic experts as your trusted guides.

This newly revised edition of National Geographic's authoritative Portugal guide brings the visitor attractions, museums, hotels, restaurants, and beach resorts of this dynamic country right up to the moment. It also includes two timely new additions: The first celebrates the national soccer team's coronation as European Champions in 2016 and examines the long history of the sport in Portugal; the second covers the new CR7 Museum, dedicated to soccer legend Cristiano Ronaldo, a native of Madeira. Travel information tips for Lisbon, Porto, the Algarve, and excursions into the country are all updated, and new visitor activities have been added. Walks in Lisbon's Almama and Porto's Ribeira districts, and drives around the fortified villages of the Serra da Marofa, complete with maps and reservation information, are also included, along with informative features on Portuguese cuisine, Portuguese wine, fado music, Sintra's English eccentrics, and Madeira's vegetation.
