Portugal - moving around the country
Due to the fact that the transport infrastructure in Portugal is quite well developed, travelers would not have any problems with traveling through its territory. The quality of roads here is at a fairly good level, although free roads are much worse than toll roads. You can rent a car in order to be able to travel by yourself. The permitted speed in residential areas is 50 km/h, on major roads not more than 90 km/h. On the other hand, on highways, it is possible to accelerate up to 120 km/h. The railway network does not cover all regions of the country, but it will be possible to get to the most visited cities from the capital. The cost of traveling by train depends on the class of the wagon (first or second class), the direction of travel and the time of the year.
Overview of festivals and celebrations in Portugal
The main entrances and streets of cities are decorated with colorful lightings, as well as garlands in honor of the arrival of newborns. The Portuguese decorate the Christmas trees and nativity scenes with the figures of the Holy Family, as well as animals. Santa Claus is also honored by locals. These figures are also used in decorating private homes, storefronts as well as other commercial premises. Like most southern nations, the Portuguese honor the centuries-old tradition of celebrating religious holidays with their families and closest friends.
