30 facts about Portugal - part 5

18. The Portuguese are fatalists

Portugal has a tradition of fado, the idea that one’s fate or destiny cannot be escaped, and it’s the name given to a form of traditional Portuguese singing that’s been given UNESCO World Intangible Cultural Heritage status. You’ll often hear fado in bars, cafes and restaurants – melancholic songs of love, loss, hopefulness and resignation – accompanied by soulful guitars, the traditional portuguese guitar and also bass. Fado also appears in in everyday speech: people often use the expression oxalá which means ‘hopefully’ or ‘if only’, from the Arabic inshallah = ‘god willing’.

19. Portugal’s most famous export and its national drink is Port

It is fortified wine made by adding grape spirit, or brandy, to the wine before fermentation ends, making it sweet and very alcoholic at around 20 percent proof. The wine is then aged in oak barrels or steel containers for between two and six years before bottling. Port wine grapes are only grown on the steeply terraced hillsides of the Douro valley near Porto, one of the world’s oldest established wine producing regions and UNESCO World Heritage site.

20. Portugal is Europe’s most westerly point

The westernmost point on mainland Europe is the Cabo da Roca (Cape Roca) in Portugal.

21. The biggest wave ever surfed was in Portugal

An underwater canyon in the area makes this part of the Portuguese coastline the world’s biggest wave generator. In February 2011, Hawaiian surfer Garrett McNamara rode a gargantuan wave of 23.77m (78ft) off the coast of Nazaré in Portugal – and created a new world record.
