PORTUGAL

A delectable combination of delicious food, history and culture, Portugal is a country that not only captivates but enlightens. Its position as centre of world exploration during the great Age of Discovery is evident today, with its Manueline architecture and the magnificent palaces, monasteries and churches that were filled with gold from the new world.

Visit the UNESCO World heritage Site of Jerónimos Monastery in Lisbon and explore the city’s Lower Town, beneath the hilltop Bairro Alto to the Terreiro do Paco. In Evora head to the fascinating Capela dos Ossos, otherwise known as the Chapel of Bones.

With Insight Vacations gain access to exclusive experiences: • Indulge on a freshy prepared Farm-to-Table Dinner with the Sequeria family in Douro Valley • Cruise Lake Alqueva with a local boat captain.
