Portugal is one of the oldest countries of the old continent and the gateway to Europe from the west.
Its geographical location at the crossing point between the Eastern Coast of the American Continent, Europe and Africa along with the richness of its cultural and environmental diversity, are key features that make this country “by the sea” an exceptional destination.
Portuguese territory still includes the archipelagos of Madeira and the Azores in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. This is a country where it is still possible to see 20,000 years’ worth of history, from the rupestrian rock engravings in the Côa Valley to the contemporary works of architecture in the cities. Portugal has an extensive and diverse heritage, a significant part of which has already been listed as world heritage sites by UNESCO.
