Map Portugal - Country Information
Map of Portugal - The map of the Portuguese Republic depicts a country located in southwestern Europe on the Iberian Peninsula. The map of Portugal shares borders with Spain to the north and east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west and south, and Portugal is the westernmost country on the European mainland. The Azores and the Madeira Archipelagos located in the Atlantic are also part of the territory included in the map of Portugal. The map of mainland Portugal is split in two by its main river, the Tagus, which flows from Spain and discharges at the Tagus Estuary, near Lisbon, where it then enters the Atlantic Ocean. The northern landscape of the map of Portugal is mountainous towards the interior, with several plateaus that are indented with river valleys. The south of the map of Portugal includes the Algarve and Alentejo regions, and is comprised mostly of rolling plains. The highest peak in Portugal is Mount Pico, located on the island of Pico, in the Azores archipelago. Portugal was one of the major players in the colonial period, along with England, France, Holland, and Spain, but its international sphere of influence dwindled in the 19th century with the independence of Brazil, its major colony.
