There is a strong bond between Portuguese culture and the country's geographical location and history and our DMC partner, Destination Spain curates experiences in Portugal, Europe's oldest nation and its Atlantic coastline provides the springboard for the discoveries. Portugal's cultural heritage as well as the friendly, welcoming nature of the Portuguese themselves have been marked by African, American and Asian influences and by the peoples who lived there before the country was founded. Portugal has 24 sites or features classified as World Heritage, including monuments, historic city centers, landscapes and intangible heritage.
It is worth noting that prior to Sintra's classification there was no such category as Cultural Landscape; UNESCO created it specifically for this exuberant natural landscape where the mountain and nature park are dotted with palaces and farms bursting with history and culture.
