Portugal has long been a country that's inspired exploration. From its early history where Celts, Romans and Moors interacted with one another to modern day cosmopolitanism, Portugal has influenced much of the world as we see it.
Like most tourists, the Algarve is one of the most popular destinations and has the country's second highest purchasing power after Lisbon.
