During the summer this place is the bomb, you have music festivals all over the place from july to september or you can go down to the south part of the country, algarve, where you can find beautiful beachs, mountains and a lot of really cool people from all over europe especially in lagos or in the little island of tafira. Anyway it´s a dam good place to any hippie to came and visit were you can drink a beer for $1 or $2, and you can roll a nice joint without no one saying anything, just don´t do it in front of the cops.
