Where the land ends and the ocean begins.
Situated in the westernmost point of Europe, kissed by the brightest sun and the celestial Atlantic Ocean, Portugal has been nourished on this blessed land since its birth.
The landscape varies from north to south. The north is mountainous towards the interior with several plateaus indented by river valleys, whereas the south is characterised by rolling plains. In addition to the mainland in the European continent, the archipelagos of Madeira and Azores are scattered within the Atlantic Ocean. Geologically, these islands were formed by volcanic and seismic events. As a result, both islands boast exotic views.
Thanks to the long coastal line, Portugal’s exclusive economic zone is the 3rd largest in the European Union and the 11th in the world, granting an ideal condition for exploration and the use of marine resources.
