Portugal is Hot

Beach in Portugal

Conde Nast Traveler magazine just published its “100 Best in the World” list in its November issue, ranking the hottest destinations according to its readers. Portugal seems to be a new favorite, ranking high in several categories.

In the European Resorts list, Penha Longa in Sintra was considered the best one in the continent, while #3 is also found in Portugal — Evora’s Convento do Espinheiro Hotel and Spa. In the top 20 are also the Albatroz Hotel in Cascais (#14), and Quinta do Lago in Algarve (#15).

In its hotel rankings, the publication also devides the lists by continents, and Europe into “Northern Europe” and “Southern Europe.” Lisbon’s Bairro Alto Hotel was considered the 9th best Southern European hotel in a list dominated by Italian and French hotels.

In the best European island category (topped by Mykonos and followed by Capri), Madeira ranked 6th, ahead of Sardinia and Crete.

These results are just the latest confirmation that Portugal is quietly seducing visitors through excellence and becoming a hot European destination. For complete information about all of the country’s cities and sights, see GoLisbon’s extensive Portugal guide.
