History

It was from the 19th century that in Portugal, infrastructures and activities began to develop in an organized way in order to attract people, starting the process that would give rise to the emergence of tourist destinations. Like the thermal resorts that, in the middle of the 19th century, were already the main center of attraction for the national bourgeois classes who were looking for them either for the cure of their pathologies or for rest and distraction.
