Portugal is definitely in fashion and most talked about in the travel international press.
A view of the Castelo de São Jorge over Lisbon made the cover of the August /September edition of the National Geographic Traveler
In an article entitled “Portugal Is Made For Wanderers”, Janelle Nanos describes her journey along the Portuguese coast, from Lisbon to Sagres.
In Lisbon, the journalist mentions the “pasteis de Belém”, the Manuelin architecture at the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, the streetcars that connect the different neighborhoods and the “nautical spirit” of sardine merchants.
The trip then goes south, through places like Portinho da Arrábida, Tróia, Comporta, Sines (where the Arts Center in Sines appears as the “last doses of contemporary life” that the travelers going along the Alentejo coast will have for a while.) and Vila Nova de Milfontes.
The Alentejo coast, she mentions, is nowadays “a real alternative to the crowded beaches of Algarve. After Zambujeira do Mar and Vila do Bispo the destination is the ancient “end of the world” for the Portuguese sailors: Sagres”.
