Most Beautiful Cities to Visit in Portugal

If you're wondering what are the most beautiful cities to visit in Portugal, you've landed in the right place. Portugal is easily one of the most beautiful countries in Europe and a bucket list destination you can't miss! From the peaceful culture, to the mouth-watering food, and stunning landscape - who wouldn't want to book a flight?



Lisbon is the capital and the largest city in Portugal; you will most likely land here first. What stood out the most for me were the super friendly people, very clean streets, and the most impressive architecture I've ever seen. It's easy to get lost in all the beauty the city has to offer.

Some sites & destinations I highly recommend adding to your list while you are in Lisbon, Portugal:

+ Praça do Comércio home to the incredible Rua Augusta Arch and restaurants with impeccable food.

+ Cais do Sodré

+ Monasterio de Jeronimos

+ Belem Tower

+ Santa Justa Elevador

+ Miraduoro Sol

+ Castle Saint George


Take one of the absolute best day trips to Sintra, where you will discover some of the dreamiest fairy-tale

castles just 45 minutes outside of Lisbon by train. I strongly suggest starting your travels to Sintra very early in the morning so that you have enough time to visit about 3-5 castles. My mistake was not dedicating more time to this destination, and I totally regret it!


Home of Cais de Ribeira and one of those jaw-drop moments - because this is that ONE place that actually looks like the photos that have probably inspired you to book👏🏽 this 👏🏽 trip.

It's one of Portugal's oldest European cities with a very rich history and timeless style. Make sure to get a good look at the incredible "azulejo" ceramic tiles on the buildings throughout the city. Here are some of the best places to see the tiles:

+ Porto's Cathedral

+ São Bento Station

+ Igreja do Carmo

+ Capela das Alma


A charming seaside town with golden sandy beaches and a coast that will leave you speechless. If you're looking for a destination that involves a lot less walking and a lot more relaxing, this is the place for you! You can literally walk from coast to coast in this city, hopping from one incredible beach to another, each with its own special features and landscapes.

Here are some of the best beaches & destinations to visit during your stay in Lagos, Portugal:

⛱ Praia do Camilo

⛱ Praia Dona Ana

⛱ Praia Benagil

⛱ Praia dos Estudantes

+ Ponta da Piedade

+ Benagil Caves
