Portugal, in Southern Europe is the western most country in Europe and shares the Iberian peninsula at the western tip of Europe with Spain.
Portugal, 900 years old, a country with a rich history of seafaring and discovery, looks out from the Iberian peninsula into the Atlantic Ocean.
The roots of that era stretch back to the 15th century when Portuguese explorers such as Vasco da Gama put to sea in search of a passage to India. By the 16th century these sailors had helped build a huge empire embracing Brazil as well as swathes of Africa and Asia. There are about 230 million Portuguese speakers around the world today.
Portugal has a rich, unique culture, lively cities and beautiful countryside. Although it was once one of the poorest countries in Western Europe, the end of dictatorship and introduction of Democracy in 1974, as well as its incorporation into the European Union in 1986, has meant significantly increased prosperity.
