Portugal has an oversized history, fascinating culture, and boatloads of sardines. Saving the capital city of Lisbon for another episode, Rick dances on the beach at Nazare; marvels at a medieval abbey in Batalha; visits a royal library and revels with university students in Coimbra; savors port wine with the people who made it along the Douro River; and gets to know Portugal's gritty and fascinating second city, Porto.
