From historic cities to turquoise beaches, spectacular landscapes and more than 200 days of sunshine per year, Portugal is a great destination for any type of vacation – and that includes yoga holidays!

Thanks to its unique mix of picturesque streets, extravagant churches, sumptuous palaces and ancient castles, combined with its natural beauty, laid-back atmosphere and fantastic climate, Portugal is constantly ranked as a favorite yoga destination.

The best part? All of this doesn’t come at a great cost, as there are plenty of affordable yoga retreats in Portugal all year round.

Portugal also features some of the most fascinating attractions in the world, like Monsanto, a village built from boulders or Capela dos Ossos (Chapel of Bones), an ossuary with interior walls decorated with human bones, dating back to the 18th century.

Moreover, Portugal’s seaside suburbs are home to booming bars, restaurants and cafes, all of them offering an authentic slice of local life. Combined with its world-renowned cuisine, Fado music and amazing nightlife, Portugal is just a place you must visit at least once in a lifetime.

And you should know that the Portuguese have really embraced the yoga culture since its arrival in Europe. Even the smallest towns have at least one yoga studio, it’s common to find people practicing their asanas on the beach and there’s a myriad of yoga holidays all throughout the country.
