Portugal Travel GuideWhen to visit Portugal
Mainland Portugal and the islands of Madeira and the Azores have relatively mild climates year-round. Most visitors come to the mainland during the summer for sun, beaches, and touring; but the rest of the year provides a good mix of lower prices and pleasant weather ideal for sightseeing. The islands' locations in the Gulf Stream (Azores) and in subtropical mountainous zones (Madeira) make them pleasant destinations any time of the year.
