Top things to do when it’s raining in the Algarve

Are you visiting Portugal for the first time?

When visiting Portugal, our advice is to just let yourself go and savour all the things the country has to offer. You'll find different landscapes to explore. Feel the aromas and flavours of Portuguese gastronomy. Listen to the sounds of nature, of fado or the rhythms of international music. In addition, experience wellness treatments at amazing spas and thermal resorts.

Come to Portugal to enjoy the good life in every way.

Choose a trip through the country from north to south. Maybe choose a short hop to the islands of Azores and Madeira, to enjoy the scenery instead. On the other hand, you can choose a terrace with a view over the old houses of Porto, or the top of the castle of São Jorge walls looking down on Lisbon. Definitely choose the beautiful beaches of the Algarve!

There are numerous possibilities just waiting for you. To accompany each of these choices, remember to ask for a glass of good Portuguese wine from the Douro, the Alentejo or the Dão, to name just three of the demarcated regions.

Flavour filled Portuguese cuisine

On the subject of flavours, what about trying Portuguese cuisine? In fact, there is a huge variety from the simplest, such as freshly caught fish, just grilled with a little salt, to traditional dishes like salted cod and the Portuguese "Cozido". In addition, there are also exquisite Michelin-star restaurants like Belcanto or Alma, where your meal is in the hands of distinguished chefs.

Discover beautiful Architecture and wonder into World Heritage monuments

Get to know the Portuguese history visiting some monuments and museums. We suggest starting with World Heritage sites. For instance, the Convento de Cristo, in Tomar, also the Monasteries of Batalha and Alcobaça, located in Portugal’s central region. Honestly, we cannot tell you which is the most beautiful!

 Visit the Alcobaça Monastery

In contrast, you can also discover some wonderful examples of modern architecture. Particularly the Casa da Música in Porto, the Centro Cultural de Belém in Lisbon, or the Casa das Mudas in Madeira.

Relax in the best hotels of Algarve and Madeira

There’s nothing like a spa for regaining your equilibrium and well-being. If you seek to relax and prevent stress, or anti-ageing, detox or beauty treatments, the Algarve and Madeira have a huge offering in this area. Choose 5-star hotels with every comfort you could dream of. Or the "Pousadas" offering the best of the region you are visiting. Coupled with tourism in the Country, where authenticity and the feeling of welcomeness are second to none.
