Portugal has a truly amazing culinary tradition! From appetizers to the wine, find it out more about its traditions!

When you think about Portugal, what would be the first thing that goes through your mind? The fantastic monuments, the major coastline from north to south, the great music, the amazing climate? You are certainly right, but there is one thing you forgot to make your trip worth it: the culinary tradition of Portugal.

Tasting the Portuguese Food and Wine

Due to its proximity to the sea, the gastronomy of Portugal is very similar to the Mediterranean one. So prepare yourself to taste the most remarkable seafood dishes & salads. For the meat lovers, do not worry: there are as many traditional meat dishes as fish dishes.
