Portugal has some of the best weather on offer in Europe and the glorious Lisbon Coast is no exception. With scorching summers and mild winters, holidays to the Lisbon Coast are fantastic whether you’re heading there in the height of August or for a warm Christmas break. Starting at the Tagus estuary and stretching as far as the Alentejo coastline, the Lisbon Coast is littered with fascinating finds and hidden gems. For the sight-seeing tourist you could fill a whole book with to-do lists and there are more than enough off the beaten track sights for those who have seen it all before. Named after the capital, Lisbon, the coastline offers a little something for everyone whether you’re a sports fanatic, shopaholic, culture vulture or a night owl.
Holidays in the Lisbon Coast can be spent in awe of some of the amazing architecture and magnificent monuments in the region. Lisbon city itself is a maze of incredible landmarks, made particularly impressive by the fact they survived an almighty earthquake in 1755. Watched over by St. George’s Castle, Lisbon comes to life in June celebrating the city’s patrons with feasts galore. Along the coast in Sintra the grand manor houses can be admired from horse and carriage. A little further afield, near Cascais, stands the Mafra Convent. Dominating the landscape, this impressive convent is still in use by nuns today.
With almost 365 days a year of sunshine, holidays to the Lisbon Coast are brilliant for a bit of sun seeking and relaxation.
