When it comes to a wellness break in Portugal, you can be assured that with the help of Turismo de Portugal, you will be able to book a break that is of the highest quality. The Portuguese tourist board is dedicated to providing tourists with the highest standards of travel within Portugal. Their job is to ensure that the tourist industry is providing information on beautiful places to visit, quality places to stay and ultimately helping the industry be the best it can be.

A large part of the Portuguese tourist board’s role is to ensure that businesses within the industry, both private and public, adhere to strategic guidelines which are in place to keep tourist destinations (old and new) developing and up to a high standard.
