Portugal: On the Edge of the World

Eaglewood ...

Eaglewood Films took to the skies along the coast of Portugal to capture its rugged and picturesque landscape in 4K. Once believed to be located on the very edge of the inhabited world, Portugal was one of the first areas of Europe to launch long distance ships, which it then used its to amass one of the world's greatest empires in the 15th and 16th centuries.  This aerial video of the coastline in the Alentejo and Algarve regions will show you why this country has become such a popular destination for tourists and drone pilots alike.

Amazing Algarve (Portugal)

Laurent Pa...

This drone video by Laurent Paris will show you why the Algarve region of Portugal has become one of the hottest destinations in southern Europe.  Algarve is the southernmost of the country's five official mainland regions, and also it's least populous.  As tourists have discovered the incredible beauty of the region's coastline, it's become one of the most popular destinations in the country, rivaling the Lisbon region (until recently the dominant region for tourism) by some measures.

Alentejo: Alqueva


The Great Lake of Alqueva & Castles #DJI #Phantom 4


The landscape of the area around Alqueva in the Alentejo region of southeastern Portugal has been transformed by a massive hydro-engineering project called Alqueva Dam.  The dam provides electricity for the region and also helps to preserve (sometimes precious) water supplies for agriculture.  The reservoir created by the dam is essentially a giant artificial lake.  Contributor and pilot Flybyzion gives us a drone's eye view of the area, where centuries-old castles now sit on or near this massive body of water.

Madeira: Island of Portugal


Behind the clouds - Madeira


Check out this magnificent video from the Portuguese island of Madeira, compliments of Drone Video Award winner videobros. Shot just before much of Portugal went into lockdown to combat the Covid-19 worldwide pandemic, the video plays upon the cloudcover which prevented the creator from hiking to the top of Pico Ruivo, the island's highest mountain. "Behind the Clouds" is a metaphor for the uncertainty faced by humanity as the deadly virus disrupts the lives of billions around the globe.  This video won DVOW in April 2020.

Centro Region: Óbidos Castle


Castle of Óbidos, Portugal


Óbidos Castle is one of Portugal's most famous.  The castle is situated in a city of the same name in the Leira district in the country's Centro region.  The great structure was built in the 12th century on the site of an old Roman fort, following the Reconquista of Portugal by Christian forces.  In 1951, the castle and grounds were designated as a national monument and restored with government funds.  You can see this famous castle from above in this drone video, compliments of Pedrodrone4k.

Portugal's Stunning Coastline


THE COASTS OF PORTUGAL // aerial drone video

Dem Niko...

Perhaps more than any other non-island country, Portugal is defined by its relationship to the sea.  With 1.8k km of coastline (just over 1k mi.), the vast majority of the country's roughly 10 million permanent residents live in its coastal cities and towns, and its top tourist destinations are almost entirely on its Atlantic and Bay of Biscay coastlines.  In this drone video by top AirVuz contributor Dem Niko, you'll get a superb aerial tour of the coastline of the country that launched Europe's Age of Discovery in the 15th century.  

Northern Portugal's Douro River


The Douro River, Porto

Francisco ...

Contributor and drone pilot Francisco Rodriguez created this beautiful aerial video of the great Portuguese city of Porto.  Once a Roman outpost, this city on the Douro River is steeped in history: it was the shipbuilders of Porto who helped launch Europe on its great Age of Exploration.  Famously, Porto Harbor was the launching point for Prince Henry the Navigator's exploratory trip to Africa in 1415, a voyage which was at least as consequential as that of Chrisopher Columbus later in the century.

Francisco ...

Contributor Francisco Rodriguez created this amazing drone video of the surfing scene at Praia Grande Beach, one of Portugal's most famous beaches.  It's located in the Sintra province of the Greater Lisbon region, just a bit west-northwest of the capital city.  It's part of the area sometimes known as the Portuguese Riviera, a stretch of Atlantic coastline that includes other famed beaches such as Cabo de Roca and Cascais, which are more popular with swimmers (as opposed to surfers) and lie to its south.  

Setúbal: Portugal's Fishing Capital


Mavic Pro a Noitecer Em Alcochete 4K Ultra HD

Jorge Novo...

Setúbal is a medium-sized port city on the estuary of the Sado River, in the Greater Lisbon region of Portugal.  Situated a bit to the south of the city of Lisbon, its calm waters stand in stark contrast to the much rougher Atlantic waters of the cities along the country's Atlantic coast.  The city was once the center of Portugal's fishing industry, one of the largest in the world at one point.  Jorge Novo Murias used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create a bird's eye view of the waterfront of Setúbal at sunset.

Aerial Tour of Sintra


Feel Sintra


Eminorcks created this epic drone video of Sintra, a culturally important Portuguese town in the Greater Lisbon area, just northwest of the capital city.  An ancient city that has long been one of the most important in Portugal, Sintra was "discovered" again beginning in the late 18th century, when many new structures were built in the Romanticist style.  It continues to be one of the biggest tourist destinations in Portugal, and its travel industry helps to propel the entire Greater Lisbon region of Portugal.
