Portugal:

Climate:

Summers are hot and dry throughout Portugal, particularly in the Algarve, which experiences very little rain. However refreshing sea breezes make for pleasant conditions. Winters are cold and wet, particularly in the northern and west coast regions. Spring and autumn are good times to visit with cheaper rates at hotels and less crowded beaches, restaurants and golf courses.

Language:

Portuguese language is one of the Romance languages. Like all other languages of the group, Portuguese is a direct modern descendant of Latin, the vernacular Latin of the Roman soldier and colonist rather than the classical Latin of the cultured Roman citizen.

Currency:

The Portuguese Escudo is the currency of Portugal. Until the introduction of the euro in 2002, 100 centavos made up escudo. Its symbol, similar to the US Dollar ($) except for with 2 bars instead of one, was called the cifrao.
