Portugal

Hello and welcome. Today I will talk about something different , I want to talk about Portugal.

This country blessed by the beautiful beaches, has a collection of natural and historial monuments and attractions.

Tourism is big business in the Algarve and the Portuguese are welcoming, friendly and courteous to all the foreigners who come to visit. Many visitors fall in love with Portugal, buy a villa or apartment in the Algarve and settle there.  In any marina or on any beach at any time of the year you will hear a multitude of languages being spoken. Most of the Portuguese people speak English, from a few words to an excellent command of the English language.
