There are so many beautiful places to visit in Portugal beyond the main cities. For quite a small country, Portugal packs a punch in the diversity of experiences, landscapes, gastronomic and cultural traditions from region to region.
Two of the cities most prominent attractions are the Braga Cathedral, the oldest in Portugal. Aside from the incredible gothic interior, the cathedral houses a few intriguing surprises, including the mummified corpse of Archbishop Dom Lourenco Vicente, who died in 1398.
Faro’s old town, partially surrounded by the 16th-century Roman walls, is loaded with fantastic historical sites. The 13th-century cathedral boasts a magnificent baroque interior with an impressive display of traditional Azulejos tiles.
