Portuguese-language territories

Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country located in southwestern Europe on the
Liberian Peninsula. Portugal is the westernmost country of mainland Europe and is bordered by
the sea of Atlantic Ocean to the west and south and by the land of Spain to the north and east.

During the 15th and 16th centuries, with a global empire that included possessions in the partial
area of Africa, \Asia, and South America, Portugal was one of the world's major economic and
military powers. Portugal was also one of the last European nations to give up its colonies and
oversea territories, turning over the Macau's administration to the People's Republic of China in 1999.

The total population of Portugal is estimated about 10,700,000. Travel and tourism will be
extremely important for Portugal.

ヨーロッパ西端の国、ポルトガル。14世紀にはヴァスコ・ダ・ガマによってインド航路が開かれ、
日本へも早くから西洋の文化をもたらした。しかし、第2次大戦後、多くの国々が独立し、マカオの
中国返還を最後に、ポルトガルは植民地支配からヨーロッパの一国へと回帰した。総人口、1,070万人、
ユーロ通貨圏の一国、最大の都市は首都、リスボンである。
