1. Lagos, Portugal
Moorish and Renaissance influences abound in South Portugal's Lagos, from its fortress to its plethora of magnificent churches. While Lagos' history is rich, it is the area's fine beaches and beach bars, which attract many of today's visitors. Frequent buses serve Lagos, making it the easiest way to get around.
