  • The Farol de Esposende (Esposende Lighthouse) set in front of the Forte de São João Baptista de Esposende. The 15 metre tall lighthouse dates back to 1922 is unusual in that it is made of metal.

    The fort dates back to the late 17th century and was built to guard the mouth of the river

  • The Pousada de Dona Maria I in Queluz is part of the Pousadas de Portugal network. These provide guest accommodation in some of Portugal's most historic buildings.

  • Looking over the rocky point that separates Alvor from the beach at Praia da Vau. The beach here is popular and has its own resort but is just far enough away from Portimão to escape from the major holiday crowds of neighbouring Praia da Rocha.

  • Looking out over the rooftops of the Alfama towards Lisbon's cathedral. This is the old part of town and the cathedral (Sé de Lisboa) is reputedly the oldest building in Lisbon, dating back to 1150.

  • Praia da Oura (Golden beach) is located just around the corner from Albufeira's main stretch of beaches. It is a pretty beach backing onto a promenade lined with restaurants and cafes.
    Being a Blue Flag beach makes this a great family beach.
