Car Hire in Portugal
Portugal has been home to a succession of inhabitants over the centuries, creating the face of the country we know today. The Roman era, which lasted from the 1st to the 5th century left an indelible mark on the landscape.
The Romans also lent the Portuguese their language, which is largely Latin-based with a few Arabic influences. Portugal eventually became colonial empire with important vast territories in Africa and Latin America (Brazil) and outposts in the Far East (East Timor, Macau, Goa). Portugal did not play a combatant role in World War II, unlike most other European countries.The Portuguese have a close affinity to the sea. Their famed mariners led the way in the exploration of Africa and the Americas, and opened trade routes to the East. The country became a strong colonial strenght, and remained so until the mid-20th century, resulting in distinctive foreign influences on the local culture and architecture. For example, from Africa,was imported the now traditional, sentimental fado music, which is one of the country’s unique experiences for visitors, particularly in the cafés of Lisbon.
