Portugal is surrounded by sea on two sides, which is one reason for the year-round mild climate. The national identity of the Portuguese is expressed in the respect for old traditions, the Portuguese language, and historical monuments. Roman ruins, medieval towns and old cloisters are scattered throughout the country.
The cultural traces of the Moors, who once conquered the country, have largely been preserved. The coastal location also has an impact on the excellent Portuguese cuisine: every menu offers a wide selection of delicious seafood and fish dishes. Another highlight is the outstanding Portuguese wines. It is no coincidence that Portugal is among the TOP travel destinations of 2016.
The Portuguese climate is overall maritime. The summers are warm and the winters comparatively mild, while temperatures in the north are much cooler than in the south. A Mediterranean climate dominates with high temperatures of over 30°C in July and August. The best time for a resort holiday in Portugal begins in the Algarve in May and ends in October for those wishing to enjoy an extended beach holiday. Because of the mild winters, Portugal is also an excellent travel destination for relaxing winter holidays – so long as you do not wish to swim in the Atlantic.
