It is the westernmost sovereign state of mainland Europe , being bordered to the west and south by the Atlantic Ocean and to the north and east by Spain.
Its territory also includes the Atlantic archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira , both autonomous regions with their own regional governments.
The official and national language is Portuguese. Portugal is the oldest nation state on the Iberian Peninsula and one of the oldest in Europe , its territory having been continuously settled, invaded and fought over since prehistoric times.
It was inhabited by pre-Celtic and Celtic peoples, visited by Phoenicians - Carthaginians , Ancient Greeks and ruled by the Romans , who were followed by the invasions of the Suebi and Visigothic Germanic peoples.
Portugal as a country was established during the early Christian Reconquista. In the 15th and 16th centuries, Portugal established the first global maritime and commercial empire , becoming one of the world's major economic, political and military powers.
During this time Portugal monopolized the spice trade , divided the world into hemispheres of dominion with Castile , and the empire expanded with military campaigns in Asia.
However, events such as the Lisbon earthquake , the country's occupation during the Napoleonic Wars , and the independence of Brazil erased to a great extent Portugal's prior opulence.
After the revolution deposed the monarchy, the democratic but unstable Portuguese First Republic was established, later being superseded by the Estado Novo authoritarian regime.
Shortly after, independence was granted to almost all its overseas territories. The handover of Macau to China marked the end of what can be considered one of the longest-lived colonial empires.
Portugal has left a profound cultural, architectural and linguistic influence across the globe , with a legacy of around million Portuguese speakers , and many Portuguese-based creoles.
It is a developed country with an advanced economy and high living standards. The word Portugal derives from the Roman - Celtic place name Portus Cale ;  a city where present-day Vila Nova de Gaia now stands, at the mouth of the River Douro in the north of what is now Portugal.
The name of the city is from the Latin word for port or harbour, portus , but the second element of Portus Cale is less clear.
The mainstream explanation for the name is that it is an ethnonym derived from the Castro people , also known as the Callaeci , Gallaeci or Gallaecia, who occupied the north-west of the Iberian Peninsula.
Another theory proposes that Cale or Calle is a derivation of the Celtic word for port, like the Irish caladh or Scottish Gaelic cala.
These explanations, would require the pre-Roman language of the area to have been a branch of Q-Celtic, which is not generally accepted because the region's pre-Roman language was Gallaecian Celtic, usually considered P-Celtic.
Another theory has it that Cala was the name of a Celtic goddess drawing a comparison with the Gaelic Cailleach a supernatural hag.
Some French scholars believe the name may have come from 'Portus Gallus',  the port of the Gauls or Celts. In the process they conquered Cale, renaming it Portus Cale Port of Cale and incorporating it in the province of Gaellicia with its capital in Bracara Augusta modern day Braga , Portugal.
The name Portucale evolved into Portugale during the 7th and 8th centuries, and by the 9th century, that term was used extensively to refer to the region between the rivers Douro and Minho.
By the 11th and 12th centuries, Portugale , Portugallia , Portvgallo or Portvgalliae was already referred to as Portugal. Portingal and variants were also used in Scots  and survive in the Cornish name for the country, Portyngal.
The early history of Portugal is shared with the rest of the Iberian Peninsula located in Southwestern Europe. The region of present-day Portugal was inhabited by Neanderthals and then by Homo sapiens , who roamed the border-less region of the northern Iberian peninsula.
Neolithic Portugal experimented with domestication of herding animals, the raising of some cereal crops and fluvial or marine fishing. It is believed by some scholars that early in the first millennium BC, several waves of Celts invaded Portugal from Central Europe and inter-married with the local populations, forming different tribes.
Modern archaeology and research shows a Portuguese root to the Celts in Portugal and elsewhere. The figures of maximum authority were the chieftain chefe tribal , of military type and with authority in his Castro or clan, and the druid, mainly referring to medical and religious functions that could be common to several castros.
The Celtic cosmogony remained homogeneous due to the ability of the druids to meet in councils with the druids of other areas, which ensured the transmission of knowledge and the most significant events.
The first documentary references to Castro society are provided by chroniclers of Roman military campaigns such as Strabo , Herodotus and Pliny the Elder among others, about the social organization, and describing the inhabitants of these territories, the Gallaeci of Northern Portugal as: "A group of barbarians who spend the day fighting and the night eating, drinking and dancing under the moon.
There were other similar tribes, and chief among them were the Lusitanians ; the core area of these people lay in inland central Portugal, while numerous other related tribes existed such as the Celtici of Alentejo , and the Cynetes or Conii of the Algarve.
A few small, semi-permanent, commercial coastal settlements such as Tavira were also founded in the Algarve region by Phoenicians — Carthaginians.
Romans first invaded the Iberian Peninsula in BC. The Carthaginians, Rome's adversary in the Punic Wars , were expelled from their coastal colonies.
During the last days of Julius Caesar , almost the entire peninsula was annexed to the Roman Republic. The Roman conquest of what is now part of Portugal took almost two hundred years and took many lives of young soldiers and the lives of those who were sentenced to a certain death in the slave mines when not sold as slaves to other parts of the empire.
It suffered a severe setback in BC, when a rebellion began in the north. The Lusitanians and other native tribes, under the leadership of Viriathus ,   wrested control of all of western Iberia.
Rome sent numerous legions and its best generals to Lusitania to quell the rebellion, but to no avail — the Lusitanians kept conquering territory.
The Roman leaders decided to change their strategy. They bribed Viriathus's allies to kill him. Rome installed a colonial regime.
The complete Romanization of Lusitania only took place in the Visigothic era. In 27 BC, Lusitania gained the status of Roman province. Later, a northern province of Lusitania was formed, known as Gallaecia , with capital in Bracara Augusta, today's Braga.
The former, beyond being one of the largest Roman settlements in Portugal, is also classified as a National Monument. The site also has a museum that displays objects found by archaeologists during their excavations.
Several works of engineering, such as baths, temples, bridges, roads, circuses, theatres and laymen's homes are preserved throughout the country.
Coins, some coined in Lusitanian land, as well as numerous pieces of ceramics, were also found. Contemporary historians include Paulus Orosius c.
In the early 5th century, Germanic tribes , namely the Suebi  and the Vandals Silingi and Hasdingi together with their allies, the Sarmatians and Alans invaded the Iberian Peninsula where they would form their kingdom.
About and during the 6th century it became a formally declared Kingdom of the Suebi ,   where king Hermeric made a peace treaty with the Gallaecians before passing his domains to Rechila , his son.
In Rechila died, leaving the state in expansion to Rechiar. After the defeat against the Visigoths, the Suebian kingdom was divided, with Frantan and Aguiulfo ruling simultaneously.
Both reigned from to , the year in which Maldras — reunified the kingdom. He was assassinated after a failed Roman-Visigothic conspiracy.
Although the conspiracy did not achieve its true purposes, the Suebian Kingdom was again divided between two kings: Frumar Frumario — and Remismund Remismundo, son of Maldras — who would re-reunify his father's kingdom in He would be forced to adopt Arianism in due to the Visigoth influence.
By the year , the Visigothic Kingdom had been installed in Iberia, it was based in Toledo and advancing westwards.
They became a threat to the Suebian rule. After the death of Remismund in a dark period set in, where virtually all written texts and accounts disappear.
This period lasted until The only thing known about this period is that Theodemund Teodemundo most probably ruled the Suebians.
The dark period ended with the reign of Karriarico — who reinstalled Catholic Christianity in He was succeeded by Theodemar — during whose reign the 1st Council of Braga was held.
After the death of Teodomiro, Miro — was his successor. During his reign, the 2nd Council of Braga was held.
The Visigothic civil war began in Miro intervened. Later in he also organized an unsuccessful expedition to reconquer Seville.
During the return from this failed operation Miro died. In the Suebian Kingdom many internal struggles continued to take place.
Eborico Eurico, — was dethroned by Andeca Audeca — , who failed to prevent the Visigothic invasion led by Leovigildo.
The Visigothic invasion, completed in , turned the once rich and fertile kingdom of the Suebi into the sixth province of the Gothic kingdom.
For the next years and by the year , the entire Iberian Peninsula was ruled by the Visigoths. Doges at this time were related to the monarchy acted as princes in all matters.
Both 'governors' Wamba and Wittiza Vitiza acted as doge they would later become kings in Toledo. These two became known as the 'vitizians', who headquartered in the northwest and called on the Arab invaders from the South to be their allies in the struggle for power in King Roderic Rodrigo was killed while opposing this invasion, thus becoming the last Visigothic king of Iberia.
From the various Germanic groups who settled in Western Iberia, the Suebi left the strongest lasting cultural legacy in what is today Portugal, Galicia and western fringes of Asturias.
Bracara Augusta, the modern city of Braga and former capital of Gallaecia , became the capital of the Suebi.
Today's continental Portugal, along with most of modern Spain, was part of al-Andalus between and , following the Umayyad Caliphate conquest of the Iberian Peninsula.
This rule lasted from some decades in the North to five centuries in the South. After defeating the Visigoths in only a few months, the Umayyad Caliphate started expanding rapidly in the peninsula.
Beginning in , the land that is now Portugal became part of the vast Umayyad Caliphate's empire of Damascus , which stretched from the Indus river in the Indian sub-continent up to the South of France, until its collapse in The governors of the taifas each proclaimed themselves Emir of their provinces and established diplomatic relations with the Christian kingdoms of the north.
Most of present-day Portugal fell into the hands of the Taifa of Badajoz of the Aftasid Dynasty , and after a short spell of an ephemeral Taifa of Lisbon in , fell under the dominion of the Taifa of Seville of the Abbadids poets.
The Taifa period ended with the conquest of the Almoravids who came from Morocco in winning a decisive victory at the Battle of Sagrajas , followed a century later in , after the second period of Taifa, by the Almohads , also from Marrakesh.
Gharb Al-Andalus at its largest was constituted of ten kuras,  each with a distinct capital and governor. The Muslim population of the region consisted mainly of native Iberian converts to Islam the so-called Muwallad or Muladi and berbers.
The Arabs were principally noblemen from Syria and Oman ; and though few in numbers, they constituted the elite of the population.
An Asturian Visigothic noble named Pelagius of Asturias in was elected leader  by many of the ousted Visigoth nobles. Pelagius called for the remnant of the Christian Visigothic armies to rebel against the Moors and regroup in the unconquered northern Asturian highlands, better known today as the Cantabrian Mountains , in what is today the small mountain region in North-western Spain , adjacent to the Bay of Biscay.
Pelagius' plan was to use the Cantabrian mountains as a place of refuge and protection from the invading Moors.
He then aimed to regroup the Iberian Peninsula's Christian armies and use the Cantabrian mountains as a springboard from which to regain their lands.
Finding that the region had previously had two major cities — Portus Cale in the coast and Braga in the interior, with many towns that were now deserted — he decided to repopulate and rebuild them with Portuguese and Galician refugees and other Christians.
The last great invasion, through the Minho river , ended with the defeat of Olaf II Haraldsson in against the Galician nobility who also stopped further advances into the County of Portugal.
Later the Kingdom of Asturias was divided into a number of Christian Kingdoms in Northern Iberia due to dynastic divisions of inheritance among the king's offspring.
Henry based his newly formed county in Bracara Augusta modern Braga , capital city of the ancient Roman province, and also previous capital of several kingdoms over the first millennia.
Afonso then turned his arms against the Moors in the south. Afonso's campaigns were successful and, on 25 July , he obtained an overwhelming victory in the Battle of Ourique , and straight after was unanimously proclaimed King of Portugal by his soldiers.
Afonso then established the first of the Portuguese Cortes at Lamego , where he was crowned by the Archbishop of Braga, though the validity of the Cortes of Lamego has been disputed and called a myth created during the Portuguese Restoration War.
Afonso Henriques and his successors, aided by military monastic orders , pushed southward to drive out the Moors.
At this time, Portugal covered about half of its present area. In , the Reconquista ended with the capture of the Algarve and complete expulsion of the last Moorish settlements on the southern coast, giving Portugal its present-day borders, with minor exceptions.
This treaty established among other things the border demarcation between the kingdom of Portugal and the kingdom of Leon, where the disputed town of Olivenza was included.
In and Portugal, like the rest of Europe, was devastated by the Black Death. Over time, this went far beyond geo-political and military cooperation protecting both nations' interests in Africa, the Americas and Asia against French, Spanish and Dutch rivals and maintained strong trade and cultural ties between the two old European allies.
In the Oporto region, in particular, there is visible English influence to this day. With this battle, the House of Aviz became the ruling house of Portugal.
Portugal spearheaded European exploration of the world and the Age of Discovery. During this period, Portugal explored the Atlantic Ocean , discovering the Atlantic archipelagos the Azores , Madeira , and Cape Verde ; explored the African coast; colonized selected areas of Africa; discovered an eastern route to India via the Cape of Good Hope ; discovered Brazil , explored the Indian Ocean , established trading routes throughout most of southern Asia; and sent the first direct European maritime trade and diplomatic missions to China and Japan.
In , Portugal acquired the first of its overseas colonies by conquering Ceuta , the first prosperous Islamic trade centre in North Africa.
There followed the first discoveries in the Atlantic: Madeira and the Azores , which led to the first colonization movements.
Throughout the 15th century, Portuguese explorers sailed the coast of Africa, establishing trading posts for several common types of tradable commodities at the time , ranging from gold to slaves , as they looked for a route to India and its spices , which were coveted in Europe.
The Treaty of Tordesillas , intended to resolve the dispute that had been created following the return of Christopher Columbus , was made by Pope Alexander VI , the mediator between Portugal and Spain.
It was signed on 7 June , and divided the newly discovered lands outside Europe between the two countries along a meridian leagues west of the Cape Verde islands off the west coast of Africa.
In , Vasco da Gama accomplished what Columbus set out for and became the first European to reach India by sea, bringing economic prosperity to Portugal and its population of 1.
Philip's , Newfoundland and Labrador , long before the French and English in the 17th century, and being just one of many Portuguese colonizations of the Americas.
Portuguese sailors set out to reach Eastern Asia by sailing eastward from Europe, landing in such places as Taiwan, Japan, the island of Timor , and in the Moluccas.
Although for a long period it was believed the Dutch were the first Europeans to arrive in Australia, there is also some evidence that the Portuguese may have discovered Australia in Magellan never made it back to Europe as he was murdered by natives in the Philippines in The Treaty of Zaragoza , signed on 22 April between Portugal and Spain, specified the anti-meridian to the line of demarcation specified in the Treaty of Tordesillas.
All these factors made Portugal one of the world's major economic, military, and political powers from the 15th century until the late 16th century.
Portugal voluntarily entered a dynastic union between and Portugal did not lose its formal independence, briefly forming a union of kingdoms.
At this time Spain was a geographic territory. War led to a deterioration of the relations with Portugal's oldest ally, England , and the loss of Hormuz , a strategic trading post located between Iran and Oman.
From to the Dutch-Portuguese War primarily involved the Dutch companies invading many Portuguese colonies and commercial interests in Brazil, Africa, India and the Far East, resulting in the loss of the Portuguese Indian sea trade monopoly.
In , John IV of Portugal spearheaded an uprising backed by disgruntled nobles and was proclaimed king. This was the beginning of the House of Braganza , which reigned in Portugal until Pedro's reign saw the consolidation of national independence, imperial expansion, and investment in domestic production.
Disregarding traditional Portuguese institutions of governance, John V acted as an absolute monarch, nearly depleting the country's tax revenues on ambitious architectural works, most notably Mafra Palace , and on commissions and additions for his sizeable art and literary collections.
Owing to his craving for international diplomatic recognition, John also spent large sums on the embassies he sent to the courts of Europe, the most famous being those he sent to Paris in and Rome in John V died the following year and his son, Joseph I , was crowned.
As the King's confidence in Carvalho e Melo increased, the King entrusted him with more control of the state. Impressed by British economic success that he had witnessed from his time as an Ambassador, he successfully implemented similar economic policies in Portugal.
He abolished slavery in mainland Portugal and in the Portuguese colonies in India, reorganized the army and the navy, restructured the University of Coimbra , and ended legal discrimination against different Christian sects in Portugal by abolishing the distinction between Old and New Christians.
Carvalho e Melo's greatest reforms were economic and financial, with the creation of several companies and guilds to regulate every commercial activity.
He created one of the first appellation systems in the world by demarcating the region for production of Port to ensure the wine's quality; and this was the first attempt to control wine quality and production in Europe.
He ruled with a strong hand by imposing strict law upon all classes of Portuguese society from the high nobility to the poorest working class, along with a widespread review of the country's tax system.
These reforms gained him enemies in the upper classes, especially among the high nobility, who despised him as a social upstart.
Disaster fell upon Portugal in the morning of 1 November , when Lisbon was struck by a violent earthquake with an estimated moment magnitude of 8. The city was razed to the ground by the earthquake and the subsequent tsunami and ensuing fires.
We bury the dead and take care of the living. Despite the calamity and huge death toll , Lisbon suffered no epidemics and within less than one year was already being rebuilt.
The new city centre of Lisbon was designed to resist subsequent earthquakes. Architectural models were built for tests, and the effects of an earthquake were simulated by having troops march around the models.
The buildings and large squares of the Pombaline Downtown still remain as one of Lisbon's tourist attractions. Carvalho e Melo also made an important contribution to the study of seismology by designing a detailed inquiry on the effects of the earthquake, the Parochial Memories of , that was sent to every parish in the country; this wealth of information allows modern scientists to reconstruct the event with some degree of scientific precision.
Following the earthquake, Joseph I gave his Prime Minister even more power, and Carvalho de Melo became a powerful, progressive dictator.
As his power grew, his enemies increased in number, and bitter disputes with the upper nobility became frequent.
In Joseph I was wounded in an attempted assassination. The following year, the Jesuits were suppressed and expelled from the country and their assets confiscated by the crown.
Carvalho e Melo spared none involved, even women and children notably, 8-year-old Leonor de Almeida Portugal , imprisoned in a convent for nineteen years.
This was the final stroke that crushed all opposition by publicly demonstrating even the aristocracy was powerless before the King's loyal minister.
In , Spain invaded Portuguese territory as part of the Seven Years' War , but by the status quo between Spain and Portugal before the war had been restored.
However, historians also argue that Pombal's "enlightenment," while far-reaching, was primarily a mechanism for enhancing autocracy at the expense of individual liberty and especially an apparatus for crushing opposition, suppressing criticism, and furthering colonial economic exploitation as well as intensifying book censorship and consolidating personal control and profit.
With the occupation by Napoleon, Portugal began a slow but inexorable decline that lasted until the 20th century. This decline was hastened by the independence of Brazil , the country's largest colonial possession.
In the autumn of , Napoleon moved French troops through Spain to invade Portugal. From to , British-Portuguese forces would successfully fight against the French invasion of Portugal in the Peninsular War , during which the royal family and the Portuguese nobility , including Maria I, relocated to the Portuguese territory of Brazil , at that time a colony of the Portuguese Empire , in South America.
This episode is known as the Transfer of the Portuguese Court to Brazil. In , Brazil was declared a Kingdom and the Kingdom of Portugal was united with it, forming a pluricontinental state, the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and the Algarves.
As a result of the change in its status and the arrival of the Portuguese royal family, Brazilian administrative, civic, economical , military, educational , and scientific apparatus were expanded and highly modernized.
However, the King of Portugal remained in Brazil until the Liberal Revolution of , which started in Porto , demanded his return to Lisbon in Thus he returned to Portugal but left his son Pedro in charge of Brazil.
When the Portuguese Government attempted the following year to return the Kingdom of Brazil to subordinate status, his son Pedro, with the overwhelming support of the Brazilian elites, declared Brazil's independence from Portugal.
Cisplatina today's sovereign state of Uruguay , in the south, was one of the last additions to the territory of Brazil under Portuguese rule.
Brazilian independence was recognized in , whereby Emperor Pedro I granted to his father the titular honour of Emperor of Brazil.
John VI's death in caused serious questions in his succession. Though Pedro was his heir, and reigned briefly as Pedro IV, his status as a Brazilian monarch was seen as an impediment to holding the Portuguese throne by both nations.
However, Pedro's brother, Infante Miguel , claimed the throne in protest. In order to defend his daughter's rights to the throne, Pedro launched the Liberal Wars to reinstall his daughter and establish a constitutional monarchy in Portugal.
The war ended in , with Miguel's defeat, the promulgation of a constitution, and the reinstatement of Queen Maria II. Under his reign, roads, telegraphs, and railways were constructed and improvements in public health advanced.
His popularity increased when, during the cholera outbreak of —, he visited hospitals handing out gifts and comforting the sick.
At the height of European colonialism in the 19th century, Portugal had already lost its territory in South America and all but a few bases in Asia.
During this phase, Portuguese colonialism focused on expanding its outposts in Africa into nation-sized territories to compete with other European powers there.
With the Conference of Berlin of , Portuguese territories in Africa had their borders formally established on request of Portugal in order to protect the centuries-long Portuguese interests in the continent from rivalries enticed by the Scramble for Africa.
Even before the turn of the 20th century, railway tracks as the Benguela railway in Angola, and the Beira railway in Mozambique, started to be built to link coastal areas and selected inland regions.
Other episodes during this period of the Portuguese presence in Africa include the British Ultimatum. This forced the Portuguese military to retreat from the land between the Portuguese colonies of Mozambique and Angola most of present-day Zimbabwe and Zambia , which had been claimed by Portugal and included in its " Pink Map ", which clashed with British aspirations to create a Cape to Cairo Railway.
His second and youngest son, Manuel II of Portugal , became the new king, but was eventually overthrown by the 5 October Portuguese republican revolution , which abolished the monarchy and installed a republican government in Portugal, causing him and his royal family to flee into exile in London , England.
The new republic had many problems. Portugal had 45 different governments in just 15 years. But the war hurt its weak economy.
Political instability and economic weaknesses were fertile ground for chaos and unrest during the First Portuguese Republic. Portugal remained neutral in World War II.
Gradually, new economic development projects and relocation of mainland Portuguese citizens into the overseas provinces in Africa were initiated, with Angola and Mozambique , as the largest and richest overseas territories, being the main targets of those initiatives.
These actions were used to affirm Portugal's status as a transcontinental nation and not as a colonial empire. After India attained independence in , pro-Indian residents of Dadra and Nagar Haveli , with the support of the Indian government and the help of pro-independence organizations, separated the territories of Dadra and Nagar Haveli from Portuguese rule in Another forcible retreat from overseas territories occurred in December when Portugal refused to relinquish the territories of Goa , Daman and Diu in India.
As a result, the Portuguese army and navy were involved in armed conflict in its colony of Portuguese India against the Indian Armed Forces.
The operations resulted in the defeat and surrender of the limited Portuguese defensive garrison, which was forced to surrender to a much larger military force.
The outcome was the loss of the remaining Portuguese territories in the Indian subcontinent. The Portuguese regime refused to recognize Indian sovereignty over the annexed territories, which continued to be represented in Portugal's National Assembly until the military coup of Also in the early s, independence movements in the Portuguese overseas provinces of Angola , Mozambique and Guinea in Africa, resulted in the Portuguese Colonial War — Throughout the colonial war period Portugal had to deal with increasing dissent, arms embargoes and other punitive sanctions imposed by most of the international community.
This period was characterized by social turmoil and power disputes between left- and right-wing political forces.
By the summer of , the tension between these was so high, that the country was on the verge of civil war. The main episode of this confrontation was the successful assault on the barracks of the left-wing dominated Military Police Regiment by the moderate forces of the Commando Regiment, resulting in three soldiers killed in action.
The Group of Nine emerged victorious, thus preventing the establishment of a communist state in Portugal and ending the period of political instability in the country.
The retreat from the overseas territories and the acceptance of its independence terms by Portuguese head representatives for overseas negotiations, which would create independent states in , prompted a mass exodus of Portuguese citizens from Portugal's African territories mostly from Portuguese Angola and Mozambique.
Over one million Portuguese refugees fled the former Portuguese provinces as white settlers were usually not considered part of the new identities of the former Portuguese colonies in Africa and Asia.
By , all the Portuguese African territories were independent and Portugal held its first democratic elections in 50 years.
In this capacity Soares tried to resume the economic growth and development record that had been achieved before the Carnation Revolution, during the last decade of the previous regime.
He initiated the process of accession to the European Economic Community EEC by starting accession negotiations as early as After the transition to democracy, Portugal bounced between socialism and adherence to the neoliberal model.
Land reform and nationalizations were enforced; the Portuguese Constitution approved in was rewritten in order to accommodate socialist and communist principles.
Until the constitutional revisions of and , the constitution was a document with numerous references to socialism, the rights of workers, and the desirability of a socialist economy.

Much of that empire was quickly lost, but even then Portugal retained sizable holdings along the African coast, in southern and eastern Asia , and in South America.
Portugal remained a colonial power until the mids, when a peaceful revolution transformed the country from a dictatorship into a democratic republic.
Long among the poorest countries of Europe, Portugal modernized in the last decades of the 20th century, expanding its economy from one based primarily on textile manufacture and livestock raising to include a range of manufactures and services.
