Because of its location on the Atlantic Ocean and with Spain as its only neighbor, Portugal has a maritime character. The long history of the country contributed to its unique culture.

Formerly called the Portuguese Empire, Portugal was a world power with overseas territories in not only Africa and Asia, but also South America.
