Portugal is a country in Southern Europe at the Mediterranean Sea.

Impressions from my backpacking trip.


The capital Lisbon impressed with its district Alfama, which consists of many narrow streets, in which one can get lost fast.


Sintra is an area near Lisbon with several castles and palaces of unique architecture.

Cabo de São Vicente

The lighthouse Cabo de São Vicente is the southwestern most piece of mainland Europe.


The Algarve region in the south of Portugal enchanted me with beautiful sandy beaches.


  • I travel to Portugal on a long weekend. I flew from Germany to Faro and traveled by train via Albufeira to Lagos. On a day trip I visited Cabo de São Vicente. Then I went by bus to Lisbon and visited the city and made a trip to Sintra. After that, I went by plane back to Germany.
