Although the region is rarely visited by anyone who isn't Portugese, there are a wide variety of uniquely attractive places to explore and interesting things to do. As the Summers in this part of the country are usually warmer, sunnier and drier than those of the UK, this provides an ideal opportunity to get out and about, experiencing what many travellers consider to be the real Portugal.
