Portugal is on the western edge of the Iberian peninsula, with two archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean. Despite its small land area, it has many landforms and climates between the Atlantic coast and the mountains. Portugal has plenty of prehistoric sites, as well as remnants from the Roman Empire, and the Age of Exploration, when Portuguese explorers found the Cape Route around Africa, and completed the world's first circumnavigation. While Portugal is modern and developed, it maintains much traditional culture with handicrafts, cuisine, music, and dance.
Wikivoyage's top-level regions for Portugal correspond to the country's official NUTS II (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics) regions. Many lower-level regions do not rely on NUTS boundaries, often using older, now unofficial provinces.
