BikingMan PORTUGAL in numbers
History and symbols of Portugal
Until the 12th century, Portugal was part of the Iberian Peninsula with Spain, and was long the scene of multiple occupations by Celtic people, Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Greeks. Its name comes from Terra Portucallis which designates two cities at the mouth of the Douro: Portus (present-day Porto) and Cale (current Vila Nova de Gaia).
The regions of the Algarve and the Alentejo are covered with plains and hills rolling towards the ocean. Between “plaine dorée”, the mountain chain of the Algarve and the rough coasts of the south west, the country holds countless lovely secret routes. A large part of the architecture of the country dates from the 1500s to the 1800s, during which time Portugal was a powerful maritime empire.
The portuguese people, known as one of the warmest in Europe, will offer a family welcome and a generous gastronomy.
