Rick Steves' Europe

Lisbon and the Algarve

Season 3 Episode 12 | 26m 3s | Video has closed captioning.

Experiencing the best of Portugal, we start in Lisbon, a ramshackle mix of glorious old and fun-loving new. Salty sailors' quarters and wistful Fado singers mix with ornate architecture to recall the glory days when Vasco da Gama and Magellan made Portugal a world power. Then we head for the south coast of your travel dreams—the Algarve. We explore the Land's End of Europe.
