Geography

Portugal is at the south-west point of Europe and includes the Azores and Madeira archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean. It has a long 1215km border with Spain to the east and an 832km Atlantic Coastal border to the west.

Climate

The climate in Portugal varies considerably from one region to another and is influenced by the latitude and proximity to the sea, which offers mild winters, especially in the Algarve.

The summers are hot and dry, especially in the inland areas. Temperatures are slightly lower in the coastal areas, because of the sea. 

There are often warm, sunny days in autumn. Nice weather at the beginning of November is often called "St. Martin’s Summer" as this saint’s day is on 11 November.
