Museums in Portugal
Portugal’s location in the Atlantic coastline has made it a platform for the discovery of the world, resulting in a long and rich history. The oldest nation in Europe, Portugal has a cultural heritage marked by the many influences of Africa, Asia and America. As a result, the country became a land of exquisite architecture, as evidenced by the many monuments and structural buildings in the land. Not only does this maritime state feature man-made wonders; it also showcases natural beauty, with its soft rolling hills, deep valleys, scenic mountains and scattered islets. No wonder the UNESCO has declared 18 Portuguese features as World Heritage sites.
If you are an art and culture buff, a trip to Portugal would seem a waste without visiting some of the many museums the country has. In Lisbon alone, you would find a number of galleries and centers that feature not only ancient artifacts, but also classical masterpieces and modern artwork collections.
Be transported in the past as you marvel at the treasures depicting Portugal’s history and get lost in the richness of the Portuguese culture as you visit as many museums as you can during your Portuguese trip.
