Portugal Study Abroad

Study Abroad in Portugal

Studying Abroad in Portugal is available in a variety of different forms.

Portugal Overview

Portugal during the 14th and 15th centuries was one of the most powerful nations in the world, ruling an empire from America to Asia. Although Portugal shares the Iberian Peninsula with Spain, its language and culture are unique. Its shores are lined with sandy beaches and its towns range in size from cosmopolitan cities to charming fishing villages. Modern Portugal, with its stable democracy and fast-growing economy, has brought about cultural revival and international recognition.



Torre de Belem (Tower of Belem) A symbol of Portuguese grandeur, surrounded by the ocean on three sides. Built under Manuel I as a harbor fortress, this well-known tower is still a symbol of Portuguese grandeur despite its receding beach.

Lagos - On the south coast of the Algarve, is one of the countrys most popular resorts. Most visitors are drawn to the superb beaches.

Parque Nacional da Peneda-Geres Wilderness park in the far north of Portugal, near the Spanish border, has spectacular scenery. The park features hiking, swimming, horseback riding, and canoeing.

Douro Valley This valley is one of Portugals scenic highlights. Port-wine vineyards sprawl across the hillsides and boat cruises along the Rio Douro make for a perfect way to soak up the atmosphere.

Sagres Tiny fishing port perched on the cliffs of southwestern Portugal. The village, a center for boat-building and lobster-fishing, is in close proximity to Lagos. Nearby are several pleasant beaches.
