World Travel Awards 2020: Madeira, Lisbon and Algarve on top of the world

The awards have just been announced and Portugal was presented with quite a few distinctions.

Madeira is the World's Leading Island Destination, Lisbon the World's Leading City Break Destination, and the Algarve the World's Leading Beach Destination, in the 2020 edition of the World Travel Awards. And there were several other prizes awarded to companies and national organisations, in those that are considered the 'Oscars' of tourism.

The Secretary of State for Tourism, Rita Marques, considers that “overcoming all constraints, we preserved the reputation and notoriety of our destinations”. “We showed the world that we are a safe country, ready to receive everyone when it is possible. Thank you very much to all the Portuguese, who contributed so that Portugal continues to be among the best”, he added.
