Country/Nation Portugal is the most westerly country in continental Europe. Its national borders are the oldest in Europe and were established in the 13th century. Five centuries ago, the Portuguese “started” globalization. The main heritage of that process of maritime expansion is the cultural link with seven Portuguese speaking countries, which account for over 230 million people. Portuguese is the fourth most spoken European language and the sixth most spoken language on the planet.
City/Region Porto was founded in the Middle Ages. Late in the 1700s it became the location where the world famous Port wine reaches its stage of maturation - the southbank cellars. Over 1 million inhabitants live in the Metropolitan area of Porto. The city has a dynamic cultural life animated by theatres, museums, art exhibitions, and live concerts.
