With its sublime sandy beaches, lush river valleys and pretty mountain-top villages, Portugal boasts a stunning variety of landscapes, while its two major cities, Lisbon and Porto, offer a beguiling mix of alfresco restaurants, buzzing fado clubs and glittering marble churches. Whether staying in a boutique B&B, ticking off World Heritage Sites or tasting the very best pastéis de nata, use our map of Portugal below to plan your trip.

You could ride the waves at the beautiful seaside town of Peniche, one of Europe’s best surfing spots, or discover the Roman heritage and winding Moorish streets of Évora – and don’t forget about sampling ruby-red port at a stylish quinta along the River Douro. If you’re heading to the capital city, Lisbon, there’s plenty of sightseeing to keep you busy, from the Torre de Belém to the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, before you eat grilled sardines on the beach in Cascais or bar-hop your way around the Bairro Alto.
