Portugal is a country of roughly ten million people living on three distinct geographies; Continental Europe, the Azores and Madeira islands. Portugal features an excellent climate ranging from north, its greenest frontier, and the quaint and diverse middle, to the warm south. The Azores are some of the most beautiful islands on earth. Madeira islands are a must stop for sun and fun. Timeless and cosmopolitan Lisbon or Lisboa, an historic yet contemporary European capital, captures every visitor with its charm and beauty.
