Hi everyone , welcome back

Today I want to talk about  Portugal 

Portugal is extraordinary! More and more travellers from all over the world are discovering it with amazement. Do not miss the beautiful cities of Lisbon and Porto (elected best European destination three times). Plan a romantic stay in Sintra or enjoy the wild beauty of the Azores and the luxuriance of the island of Madeira.

Portugal has a rich and interesting history in many ways. Portugal was technically considered a country in 1143 after an array of power struggles and invasions until finally joining what is now known as the European Union in 1968. This move is largely responsible for the Portugal we can visit today. Particularly interesting features of Portuguese history are preserved in unique museums

There is no place in the world where seafood is more adored and masterfully prepared than on the coasts of Portugal. From fresh fish to octopus, you will not only find it all, but you’ll taste the sea like never before. Portuguese cuisine is fresh, authentic, and full of flavors that have been perfected over generations.

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.
