Europe is a continent located entirely in the Northern Hemisphere and mostly in the Eastern Hemisphere. It is bordered by the Arctic Ocean to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. It comprises the westernmost part of Eurasia.
Portugal on the Iberian Peninsula is bordering Spain. Its location on the Atlantic Ocean has influenced many aspects of its culture: Salt cod and grilled sardines are national dishes, the Algarve’s beaches are a major destination and much of the nation’s architecture dates back to when there was a powerful maritime empire.
