Welcome to !

We are an English language website and as mentioned above we try to do things differently.

What we want to give you is a variey of restaurants, shops and various types of businesses that you will not find any where else.  You will find links to national and local government websites where they are relevant to the English speaking visitor or resident.
What we will not do is link you to somewhere like to arrange your hotel or other holiday accomodation. You are free to follow the links offered and to comment on the links offered. Your feed back will be used to help others. A bad comment might even get a business and link removed.

Furthermore every menu option above (bar two) will take you to a page with information.

More information will be coming 'on-line' in the next few weeks. Please do look back soon !

About Portugal

Officially the Portuguese Republic (in Portuguese : República Portuguesa), is a unitary semi-presidential republic. It is located in South-Western Europe, on the Iberian Peninsula, and it is the westernmost country of mainland Europe, being bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and south and by Spain to the north and east. Aside from continental Portugal, the Portuguese Republic holds sovereignty over the Atlantic archipelagos of Azores and Madeira, which are autonomous regions of Portugal. The country is named after its second largest city, Porto, whose Latin name was Portus Cale.
