Synopsis by Alice Day
Portugal is one of Europe's smallest countries, and its landscape features forests, rivers, valleys, and the Serra da Estrela mountain range. Video Visits: Portugal -- The Land of Discoveries provides some of Portugal's history in addition to footage of its sights. The Moors left behind significant legacies of their occupation in Portugal, especially in the architecture of castles and churches. Lisbon, its capital, offers cobbled streets in its older section, where interesting shops are waiting to be found. The lagoon area of Aveiro has canals and colorful boats that add to the lure of the region.
