So many uncrowded sightseeing, a great weather and everything less expensive than during summertime… What else to wish for ?

It enjoys generally mild weather, temperatures rarely dropping to only 5°C but sometimes going up to 27°C ! Technically it is winter. Practically it is sunny with little rain and dry air. This is what makes Portugal such a pleasant winter destination for non-skiers. Some of the particularly wonderful destinations to see here from December to February are:
