Portugal is one of Europe’s most beautiful and worth seeing countries. If you love the Mediterranean lifestyle of good beaches, good food, and fancy cities. There is a lot to see and do there, but Portugal isn’t the richest country in Europe, by any stretch of the imagination. A few cities are wealthier and more developed than the rest, and here we have a list of the richest cities in Portugal:
In the south of Portugal, you will find the beautiful city of Faro, located in the Algarve region of Portugal. The city has a colorful history, filled with Moores, Byzantines, and Romans, which has to lead to an interesting mixture of architecture and culture. The city is one of the sunniest in Europe, which in combination with the beaches and the historical center makes it an amazing tourist destination, and that is one of the main driving forces behind the city. If you are looking for a picturesque Portuguese city to visit, it’s worth considering Faro.
Porto is Portugal’s second-largest city, but we can argue whether it is the most beautiful one or not. Lying on the bank of the Douro river, Porto is an economic and tourist hotspot, with millions of people arriving every year. Beyond that, the city is very industrialized and is the home of many large Portuguese and international companies. Portugal is also a financial center with some of Europe’s most prominent securities exchanges being located there. If you want a large, but not overly large city that is well developed and very beautiful, Porto is worth checking out.
As you probably guess, Portugal’s capital is also its richest city. With a metro population of 2.8 million cities, it’s by far the largest city in the entire country and that concentration of people leads to a lot of affluence. Portugal’s economic and political institutions are all located here and that, combined with the developed tourism industry leads to a lot of money being concentrated in Lisbon. It’s also a very beautiful city, so visiting it is well worth the investment.
