With golden beaches to explore, towering cliffs to gaze out from, mountains to climb and ancient ruins to gasp at – Portugal Easter holidays offer a multitude of delights. Meander along the beaches of the Algarve and Madeira, pick up souvenirs in sleepy fishing villages, witness the spring explosion of colour in the hills and valleys of the country’s many natural parks and party the night away in lively resort towns. There are plenty of gastronomic treasures to uncover too, from sugar-covered almonds to freshly grilled sardines and cozido (a tasty Portuguese stew of sausage, pork and beans).
Easter is a special time to come to Portugal, a predominantly Catholic country, and during Holy Week, fantastic street processions and religious rituals are a daily occurrence. In the city of Braga, streets and alters are transformed with Easter decorations, flowers and candles and on Holy Thursday, barefoot, hooded men bearing torches march through the historical centre in an atmospheric procession. A Portugal trip is history, mystery, sunshine and wonder all rolled into one.
