Portugal is one of the southern European country on the Iberian Peninsula, bordering Spain. Its location on the Atlantic Ocean has influenced many aspects of its culture: salt cod and grilled sardines are national dishes. The Algarve’s beaches are a major destination for beach lovers and much of the nation’s architecture dates to the 1500s–1800s, when Portugal had a powerful maritime empire.
