Discover Architecture

Palaces, castles and churches impress due to their vastness and their emphasis on detail. Most of all, it is the diversity of styles which makes you want to visit everything, a marvellous token of the country's diverse history. The Romanesque, Gothic, Manueline and Baroque architectures bring to mind the unquestionable influence of Europe, Islam and India all at once.
