Portugal's Greatest Hits (Video + Stills)

Internet Premiere

My film “Any Porto In a Storm” features Lisbon monuments and its bullring with Moorish ornaments, Portuguese folk dancing and the Portuguese blues (Fado). Visit a horse ranch, the scenic west coast, Roman Empire sites, a magnificent garden, beautiful Porto, walled church of medieval knights, climbing ancient walls, and Fatima’s Catholic miracle site.

“Any Porto In a Storm” can be seen on the web, if you have a high speed internet connection. This is a free, non-commercial streaming video on the Windows Media Player. No ads and no strings attached.

Where to go in PORTUGAL???

Hi All!

I am planning to spend a week in Portugal towards the beginning of October. I have found a cheap flight from Madrid to any one of these airports: FARO, PORTO and LISBON. I will be running around quite a bit in Spain and was hoping to spend one week in one spot in Portugal and chill out. I like beaches (but doesn’t have to be by the beach), beautiful scenery, seeing cool architecture/museums, etc. and also needs to be a cheap area.

Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated!
