Portugal is located on the west coast of the Iberian Peninsula and shares its border with Spain. Much like Spain, Portugal was a powerful seafaring nation in the 15th and 16th centuries and established several overseas colonies, including Brazil. Today, Portugal has an industrialized economy, made up primarily of light industry, and is a member of the European Union. A full-color overview of a fascinating nation, ""Portugal"" is an accessible guide to students who want to learn more about this country's culture, geography, and economy.
