Where to go in Portugal

There are plenty of great places to visit in Portugal from the beautiful beaches of the Algarve to wine tasting in the Douro Valley, hiking in Madeira and wondering the cities of Porto and Lisbon. These are perhaps the bits you do know, but what about the little gems that aren't quite on your radar? New to our Portugal portfolio is the rural countryside of the Alentejo and the achingly hip town of Comporta. Here are our suggestions of where to go in Portugal:
