For me, 2016 was all about Portugal. I saw and experienced enough to make an impression and get obsessed with the country, food and culture. My goal was to capture photos of Portugal that would show its beauty and colors, and help inspire others to travel there.

Although it may appear tiny on the map, Portugal is so diverse and each region has its particular stories to tell. I’ll be writing blog posts with tips on how, where, and what to do in each area, along with other tips like when to go, how much things costs, but in the meantime, I’d like to show you something.

After 6 months and more than 10k photos taken, I can finally share with you those that are the most expressive and have the most meaningful story to me.

Lisbon

Because every story in Portugal starts in Lisbon.

…a tiny town ‘at the end of the world.’

For thousands of years it was believed that this was the end of the world. But what hapened here six centuries ago led to the discovery of the world as we know it today. That cliff marks the southwestern-most point of continental Europe. And it gives you an amazing unexplainable feeling.

Hard to get a caption for this…

Lagos

A little treasure in Portugal´s Algarve region.

Lagos, Portugal

Look at this beautiful white washed streets of Lagos. You can beat the crowds by waking up early and wander through these white-colorful streets at your leisure without the hustle and bustle of tourists.

Ending the morning on Praia do Pinhão was my favorite habit on my entire stay in Portugal. This beautiful beach is in a secluded cove, surrounded by tall orange cliffs, creating a peaceful shelter. Its clear waters look out to the grottos. Fantastic lights for photographers.

What would Portugal be without its charming Porto city…
