Portugal is a southern European country on the Iberian Peninsula, bordering Spain. Its location on the Atlantic Ocean has influenced many aspects of its culture: salt cod and grilled sardines are national dishes, the Algarve’s beaches are a major destination and much of the nation’s architecture dates to the 1500s–1800s, when Portugal had a powerful maritime empire.

We visited Portugal in July 2016 and stayed at the Doubletree by Hilton Lisbon Fontana Park. We explored Lisbon including Belém Tower, Monastery of St. Jerome, Ajuda National Palace, and St. George’s Castle with amazing views of the city.
