Come along on a three-month road trip through Portugal’s countryside with Tim and Laurie Warden. Enjoy the palacios in Sintra near Lisbon, then travel south to the Algarve along the southern coast with its golden rocky cliffs and secluded beaches. Traveling north, visit Obidos, a lovely ancient walled town, and see the monasteries at Bathala, Alcobaca and Tomar. Other highlights include the Douro River valley with acres of grapevines, the high country of the Serra de Estrela where you can still see shepherds at work. Visit the eastern border with castles dotting the landscape.
