Portugal

Portugal is located in Western Europe and has a population of 10.7 million people. Portugal is an eclectic destination which until recently has been largely eclipsed as a tourist destination by its neighbours to the east. With medieval villages and castles scattered along the sun-kissed coastline, lush vineyards and bustling urban centres, Portugal is a wonderful destination. The official language is Portuguese, although English is widely spoken in business communities.
