Portugal doubles its wins in tourism awards

The European gala for the major awards in the tourist industry went ahead on Saturday, in Athens – Greece, and saw Portugal reach the Olympus, nearly doubling the number of awards won compared to last year.

In 2013 the Algarve had already won in the “Best Beach Destination in the World” and “Best Golf Destination in Europe” categories, but this year Portugal reached 40 nominations and beat the record, with 16 awards won in all.
