The impressive coastline of a small country like Portugal makes a real impression - the continental part reaches a length of 830 km. Beaches created for surfing can be found almost anywhere...
Sometimes it happens that during travelling we don’t have enough time to see everything we would like. Below I would like to show you my proposal of places to see in Porto during one day.
'Lisbon Under The Stars' is a multimedia performance presenting the history of Portugal during over 600 years. It takes place on the ruins of the Carmelite Convent (Convento do Carmo) and presents the history of the time of the founding the monastery.
The Erasmus Student Exchange Programme gave me the chance. A trip for half a year to a country at the end of Europe, to a country whose subjective image I have painted in my imagination, was perhaps the most difficult decision in my life.

As you know, every bigger city has points from which you can enjoy beautiful views. In case of Lisbon is the same because of many “Miradouros”.
If you are in Lisbon besides places where you can try the local cuisine, drink delicious Portuguese coffee or Pastel de Nata, you cannot forget to try Portuguese liquor which is Ginjinha.
Sesimbra is a fishing village located 40 km from Lisbon, surrounded by the beautiful forested hills of Serra da Arrábida, and west of it you will find the wild, breathtaking cliffs of Cape Cabo Espichel.
Peniche is one of the largest traditional fishing ports in Portugal and the main Atlantic center of water sports - windsurfing, kitesurfing, surfing, bodyboarding. The natural miradouro around the peninsula is also worth a trip.
If you don’t have plenty of time for sightseeing, below my proposition of the short walk around Alfama. However, it is also worth mentioning the tram 28, which goes through Alfama,
If you hear about Lisbon the first what comes to your mind is sightseeing of beautiful monuments or cities, sunbathing, trying the local cuisine in the presence of good Portuguese wine.
The mysterious Jardim da Estrela (Star Garden) most of a all, a garden for people - a place that we can experience, not just visit because recreation in Portuguese has many name.
The red roofs are the crowns of the seven? Lisbon hills, but paradoxically it is the lack of roof that makes the former Carmelite Church one of the most fascinating objects in the Portuguese capital.

In the history of Portugal, the motive of promise appears repeatedly - such 'something for something' with the absolute.
