If you're already planning to visit Porto, Portugal - scroll to the next section for a list of the best places to stay.

What to eat

Huge advice – go for the local food. There are plenty of places where you can try seafood, local wine or local pastry. They usually serve traditional starters which include bread, olives, some spread, some pickles might be included as well. One of the specialties I really liked – seafood soup. It tastes good and warms you up. Bare in mind that Portugal is famous for wine. No matter if it was produced next to Porto or in Duoro region, it is always nice.

Porto Moniz

In the morning I always visited some more popular beaches, the market or just walked in the city to find some souvenirs. It was also nice to discover some places alone. Porto Moniz In the hostel, I met some really nice people like Iveta. One day we had decided to visit Porto Moniz which is on the other side of Funchal (the capital). It’s a very small town with the population of 2500 people. Our plan was to go there by bus, find a hostel to stay one night and then back on the next day. According to our plan, we caught the bus so early in the morning. It was three hours long journey, but we didn’t have time to get bored. On our way, we met a Brazilian musician guy who talked a lot. He was singing in a restaurant of Porto Moniz.

Arrival at the island of Madeira

I got a Portuguese guidebook from my parents for Christmas. This book contains all the interesting places what it’s worth visiting in the country such as Lisbon, Porto, the region of Algarve, Braga, and Coimbra. I have already read about these places before. But there were two islands (Madeira and Azores) as well that I didn’t even know their existence.

Bragança: hot land, cold land

Tradition and modernity. Those are the words that describe Bragança, a lovely small town in the countryside of Portugal. Distant from the most famous cities – Lisbon and Porto – Bragança is located in the northeast of Portugal, in the region of Trás-os-Montes, and borders with Spain.  This position influences the town’s climate which makes it a hot and cold land with snow in the winter and a 40ºC degrees sun during the summer. Nature, nightlife, history, culture and pilgrimage. Here’s a small guide of how to enjoy the stay in Bragança in all seasons.
