An English project

Portugal has borders in the north and east with Spain; in the south-east with Spain too, but there is a natural border: the Guadiana River. In the south and west Portugal faces the Atlantic Ocean

The capital of Portual is Lisbon, which is situated in the river mouth of the Tajo River. But Portugal has also other important cities, like Coimbra and Porto, or the Algarve, where there are lots of wonderful beaches, which is why this area has so many tourists.

The food is important in Portugal; you can find different types of desserts, seafood and the speciality is cooked cod.

Some of the most popular Portuguese people are not international football stars but they have other really important people, successful people all over the world. For example;

One of the best football player in the world at the moment, Cristiano Ronaldo:

-a famous writer called José Saramago.

-an old explorer and conquerer : Vasco da Gama.

One of the important facts in Portugal happened in 1910. It was the year when this country became a republic.

The currency is the same as in Spain; the euro (€) and Portugal has been a member of the European Union since 1986.

Finally we can consider Portugal either the beginning or the ending.

I'd rather live in Spain but if i had to move to another country I think Portugal could be a good option, maybe I would choose this country!!
