Portugal – Travel Package Highlights
One of Europe’s oldest and photogenic capitals, Lisbon features brilliant colors, fabulous shopping and friendly locals. Perhaps the best way to get to know the city is from wandering the alleyways, cobbled streets and hidden squares of its historic Alfama district. Other iconic shooting locations may include Belém Tower, Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, Castelo de São Jorge, Rossio Square and Praça do Comércio in Baixa.
Sintra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and just a quick train ride outside of Lisbon. Possible shooting locations would include the extravagant palaces of Quinta da Regaleira, Palácio Nacional da Pena, and Palácio Nacional de Sintra, as well as the 10th-century Moorish castle, Castelo dos Mouros.
If participating in the Lisbon Coast Supplement our journey begins at Cabo da Roca, the western most point of mainland Europe; its steep cliffs and picturesque lighthouse are breathtaking backdrops for any glamour photograph. From there we travel northward stopping to explore the rugged seascapes of beautiful Praia da Ursa (Ursa beach). Photo possibilities could range from standard swimwear to nudes (it’s a nude beach). We’d finish up with late afternoon or sunset vistas at the quaint coastal village of Azenhas do Mar.
