Portugal

Portugal in Southern Europe shares the Iberian Peninsula at the western tip of Europe with Spain.

Geographically and culturally somewhat isolated from its neighbour, Portugal has a rich, unique culture, lively cities and beautiful countryside.

Portugal is 900 years old, and even though it has a relatively small area, it played a crucial role in world history. As of today, it is the oldest country in Europe with the same borders.

It might only be a small country but Portugal manages to be both astonishingly beautiful and endlessly surprising. If, when you think of places to visit in Portugal, you imagine the sandy beaches of the Algarve or the idiosyncratic cities of Lisbon and Porto, then any journey into the real heart of Portugal promises to be a revelation

You can travel in a single day from green mountains in the North, covered with vines and all varieties of trees to Rocky Mountains, with spectacular slopes and falls in the Centre, to a near-desert landscape in the Alentejo region.

The climate is mainly characterized by a warm temperate, Mediterranean climate with a distinct wet season in winter.

The official language is Portuguese, and the currency is the Euro.
