Portugal elected the 6th most beautiful country in the world

Portugal was elected as the 6th most beautiful country in the world by UCity Guides, a tourism portal that has drafted a list of the 10 more beautiful destinations to visit.

The selection, where six of the countries are Europeans, highlights "the natural wonders and pure volcanic archipelago of Azores", the "floating garden" which is Madeira, the "amazing" Atlantic coast and the "mystics" cables of the mainland coast. The beauty of riverside Lisbon and Porto, the Peneda-Geres National Park and the medieval villages of Marvao and Monsaraz are other highlights.

The list is led by Italy, followed by Spain, France, Australia and Greece. Following Portugal are the United States, Brazil, South Africa and Germany.
