If you've been to Portugal before, you must have noticed: the different variations of colors, styles and materials that make Portuguese architecture truly atypical and unique.
Indeed, the country has a very rich architecture, with a history which concerns the whole world. Between wars, invasions, conquests, colonizations, dictatorships and revolutions, the country has left behind him a great history but also great monuments, more than fifteen being placed in the heritage of UNESCO, whereas the others are known touristic sites and maintained. However, others are still totally abandoned and unknown in some areas.
