Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic (Portuguese: Republica Portuguesa) is located in southwestern Europe on the Iberian Peninsula, and is the westernmost country of mainland Europe. Portugal is bordered by Spain to the north and east and by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and south. The Atlantic archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira, are also part of Portugal.
Portugal has witnessed a constant flow of different civilizations during the past 3,100 years, including Greek, Roman, Germanic, Moorish and others, who all made an imprint on the country's culture, history, language and ethnic make-up. During the 15th and 16th centuries, its vast transcontinental empire made Portugal one of the world's major economic, political, and cultural powers. Nowadays, Portugal is a developed country, a member of the European Union since 1986 and a Eurozone founding member that launched the single currency in 1999.
Major industries include oil refineries, automotive, cement production, pulp and paper industry, textile, footwear, furniture, and cork (the world leader productor). Agriculture no longer represents most of the economy but the portuguese wines, namely Port Wine and Madeira Wine are still exported worldwide. Tourism is also an important activity, specially in the Algarve (south) and Madeira Islands regions.
Continental Portugal is split in two by its main river, the Tagus (Tejo). Northern landscape is mountainous in the interior areas, with plateaus indented by river valleys that allow the development of relevant agricultural areas. The South area between the Tejo and the Algarve (the Alentejo) features mostly rolling plains with a climate somewhat warmer and drier than the cooler and rainier north. The Algarve, separated from the Alentejo by mountains, enjoys a Mediterranean climate comparable with Morocco or Southern Spain.
The islands of the Azores and Madeira are located in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Some of these islands have had recent volcanic activity, as recently as 1957. Portugal's highest point is Mount Pico in Pico Island, an ancient volcano, at 2,351 metres (7,713 ft). Portugal's climate can be classified as Mediterranean. It is one of the warmest European countries. Spring and Summer months are sunny, Autumn and Winter are rainy and windy. ()
