Portugal - World Fact - Hostel in Europe


Portugal Neighbouring Spain and with the coast line by the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal gives you beautiful beaches, going north forested mountains, and of course nice cities like Lisbon, where you will find a small port city with ancient history, little streets and nice shops and cafès. Eventhough Lisbon have been the wealthiest city back in time, due to foundings of new travel routes, it has also had its bad luck with civil wars, and military coup. Hostel in Europe Network
