Portugal is fast becoming a hotspot for American Expats, particularly the two largest cities of Lisbon and Porto. Portugal made Forbes list of countries to possibly retire in 2021, while TravelNoire recently highlighted Portugal’s growing Black Expat community. Shanna, a member of our team, is spending the month of November in Portugal and will be documenting the country’s sites and sounds here on UMT!


Europe is known for its majestic churches and cathedrals. Two of Porto’s most popular houses of worship are the Porto Cathedral and the Clergios Tower. Both offer breathtaking views high above the city if you’re able to manage punishing and slightly claustrophobia-inducing stone stairways.
