Portugal is defined as a Mediterranean climate
Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country situated in southwestern Europe on the Iberian Peninsula. Portugal is the westernmost country of Europe. The Atlantic archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira are part of Portugal.
Portuguese, the official language, is a Romance language derived from the Latin spoken by the Romanized pre-Roman peoples of the Iberian Peninsula around 2000 years ago. In the 15th and 16th centuries, it spread worldwide as Portugal established a colonial and commercial empire (1415-1999). In the present day, Portuguese is spoken as a native language on 4 different continents, with Brazil accounting for the largest number of native Portuguese speakers in any country.
Portugal is defined as having a Mediterranean climate, and is one of the warmest European countries: the annual average temperature in mainland Portugal varies from 12ºC (53.6ºF) in the mountainous northern interior to over 18ºC (64.4ºF) in the south and in the Guadiana river basin. The Algarve, a famous tourist destination in the south of the country, has a climate similar to that of the southern coastal areas of Spain or Southern California.
