• Mosteiro dos Jerónimos:
Located in the Belém suburb of Lisbon, Mosteiro dos Jerónimos is a lasting tribute to the great Portuguese navigator and explorer Vasco da Gama. It was commissioned by King Manuel I after Vasco da Gama discovered the sea route to India in 1498. This majestic monument, one of the country’s most prominent landmarks, is usually the first stop for travellers on Portugal packages from India. Built in the traditional Manueline architecture, this monument was designed by the master architect Diogo de Boitaca. The monastery here is dedicated to the monks of the Order of St Jerome and it continued to be used as a school and orphanage until 1940 after the order was dissolved in 1833. The church here is another highlight of the monument. The interiors are absolutely breath-taking with ornate arches and intricate wood carvings. Vasco da Gama and 16th-century poet Luís Vaz de Camões are buried here. This monument is a must-visit on package holidays to Portugal.
• Palácio Nacional de Sintra:
Sintra was a favoured winter retreat for the Portuguese royals owing to the exquisite scenic beauty of the landscapes in the surrounding areas. Travellers flock to this place on Portugal tour packages from India to embrace its gorgeousness. The area is considered to be so beautiful that it has even earned the status of being a UNESCO World Heritage Cultural Landscape. And sitting amidst such gorgeousness is Palácio Nacional de Sintra, located at the central square of the old town of Sintra Velha. The architecture of the palace is a mixture of Moorish and Manueline styles. Among the many attention-grabbing highlights are the Swan Room (Sala dos Cisnes) with a fresco of 27 gold-collared swans, Magpie Room (Sala das Pegas) where the ceiling is decorated with magpies and Sala dos Brasões where shields of 72 prominent 16th-century families are kept.
• Mosteiro de Santa Maria da Vitória:
Be prepared to go speechless at the sight of this humongous monastery built to commemorate the 1385 Battle of Aljubarrota. There’s an interesting story behind this monastery. It so happened that Juan I of Castile came charging with a 30,000 strong army to claim the throne of João d’Avis. In desperation, he invoked the Virgin Mary for help and promised to build a monastery in her name. His prayers were answered when his small army defeated Juan I’s huge army. In return, João d’Avis built this monastery with fabulous limestone exteriors and a Gothic interior that has been decorated with angels, saints, apostles, and other biblical figures. It is a mammoth edifice that leaves visitors on Portugal vacation packages enchanted.
• Serra do Gerês:
The Serra do Gerês mountain range is located in the Minho region of Northern Portugal and is a must-visit for honeymooners who want to spend some quality time on their Portugal honeymoon packages. The remoteness of the place adds to its captivating charm. This is a paradise for outdoor lovers too as the region offers fabulous hiking options. Hike, walk, or just sit down in quiet amazement of the scenery around, as these mountains are contained within the alluring National Park called Parque Nacional da Peneda-Gerês. Miles and miles of wilderness punctuated by pristine lakes and native flora and fauna; it is one of the best green vestiges of Europe.
• Universidade de Coimbra:
Located in one of Portugal’s most captivating cities, Coimbra, the Universidade de Coimbra is the country’s oldest university, founded in 1290 by King Dinis. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this place is a great inclusion for Portugal tour packages. The buildings of the old Coimbra University are built around a collonaded square. The Sofia and Alta wings of the university were former royal residences. One of the highlights of this place is the beautifully decorated library known as Biblioteca Joanina, installed in 1717 by King João V.
• Museu Calouste Gulbenkian:
When your Portugal travel package takes you to Lisbon, you cannot miss this museum. This museum houses one of the finest art collections in all of Europe. It used to belong to an Armenian oil tycoon named Calouste Sarkis Gulbenkian. Upon his death, he bequeathed his possessions to Portugal. The items on display cover a staggering 4000 years and have artefacts ranging from classical and oriental Antiquity to European art of the early 20th century.
