Most Instagrammable Places: Portugal

Vibrant, colorful and full of history, one of Europe’s most Instagrammable places is Portugal. One of the oldest countries in all of Europe, Portugal is famous for things such as, producing 50% of the worlds Cork export, housing the oldest bookstore in the world –Livraria Bertrand in Lisbon, as well as being the first country to circumnavigate Africa in search of following the spice trail.

With all of its historical past, present, and future, it’s no surprise that within 2019 it became one of the most buzz-worthy, Instagrammed and talked about places for travel. I am The Influence Agency’s resident Photographer and Social Media Coordinator and had the pleasure of traveling there in July 2019.
