5. Portugal was the world’s first maritime power, and birthplace to some of the world’s first explorers.

It was at the forefront of European exploration in the 15th and 16th centuries: During the Age of Discovery, Ferdinand Magellan was the first person to circumnavigate the globe; Vasco de Gama discovered the sea route to India; Bartholomew Dias was the first to sail around the southern tip of Africa, which he called the Cape of Good Hope; and Pedro Álvares Cabral and others discovered new lands, including Brazil, parts of Africa and the Far East – and claimed them for Portugal.

 

6. Portugal’s colonial empire spanned 600 years, the longest-lived of the modern European empires.

At its height it included what are now 53 different countries. Brazil got independence in 1822, all of Portugal’s African colonies were independent by the end of 1975 and the last Portuguese colony, Macau, was handed over to China in 1999.

 

7. Portuguese is the official language of eight other countries outside of Portugal

As a result of its colonisation, Portuguese is spoken in Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, Sao Tome and Principe, as well as Goa in India and Macau. It’s the 5th most spoken  language in the world with around 290 million speakers (2019).

 

8. Portugal was first European nation to engage with the transatlantic slave trade

Taking slaves from West Africa to the New World. It was also the first colonial power to abolish slavery, some 50 years before Britain, Spain, France and the United States.
