The founding of Lisbon dates back to 12th century BC, making it older
than Rome and an important international capital. It was from this
seaport that the explorations of Vasco da Gama and others led to Portugal's
control of half of the New World. Today it is home to splendid art
and maritime museums and a 13th century castle, featuring rare white
peacocks and black-necked swans in its garden. Fado is a unique, soulful
type of singing you will hear while relaxing in Lisbon's cafes.
Porto is Portugal's second largest city and capital of Portugal's beguiling north. Here you'll see an array of architectural gems from Roman, Gothic, Baroque, Neoclassic and Renaissance eras in this scenic city built into the granite cliffs at the mouth of the river Douro.
