Fascinating facts about the Portuguese language
The Portuguese language is one of the most important spoken around the world today. Not only is it the sixth most spoken language in the world, but it also has a presence on almost all of the continents. Here are some intriguing facts about this amazing language. It’s the official language of nine countries. It is a common misconception that Portuguese is only spoken in Portugal and Brazil. In fact, it is the official language in nine different countries: Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Timor-Leste, Equatorial Guinea, Cape Verde, and São Tomé and Principe. Furthermore, Portuguese is the official language of the Chinese autonomous territory of Macau. Only 5% of Portuguese speakers live in Portugal
Unsurprisingly, with populous countries such as Brazil and Mozambique having it as their official language, the majority of Portuguese speakers are not from Portugal. However, the estimated proportions of Portuguese speakers outside of Portugal are quite astounding—only one-twentieth of the world’s Lusophones actually reside in the language’s home country. It’s the fastest-growing European language in the world behind English. Due to the huge numbers of Portuguese speakers around the world (it is the sixth most spoken language on the planet) and its distribution across South America, Europe, Africa and Asia, Portuguese is growing fast and has the potential to be an “international communication language,” according to UNESCO. It’s heavily influenced by Arabic. As the Islamic Moors from North Africa and the Middle East conquered Portugal and Spain in the eighth century, a form of Arabic was the official language of the Iberian Peninsula until the Reconquista of the 13th century. As a result, the Portuguese language underwent a heavy influence from Arabic, and many words of Arabic origin remain in everyday parlance, including almofada (cushion), azeitona (olive), and garrafa (bottle).

The Azores, also Açores, officially the Autonomous Region of the Azores (Região Autónoma dos Açores), is one of the two autonomous regions of Portugal (along with Madeira). It is an archipelago composed of nine volcanic islands in the North Atlantic Ocean about 1,360 km (850 mi) west of continental Portugal. Its main industries are agriculture, dairy farming, livestock, fishing, and tourism, which is becoming the major service activity in the region. In addition, the government of the Azores employs a large percentage of the population directly or indirectly in the service and tertiary sectors. The main city of the Azores is Ponta Delgada.
There are nine major Azorean islands and an islet cluster, in three main groups. These are Flores and Corvo, to the west; Graciosa, Terceira, São Jorge, Pico, and Faial in the centre; and São Miguel, Santa Maria, and the Formigas Reef to the east. They extend for more than 600 km (370 mi) and lie in a northwest-southeast direction.
All the islands have volcanic origins, although some, such as Santa Maria, have had no recorded activity since the islands were settled. Mount Pico, on the island of Pico, is the highest point in Portugal, at 2,351 m (7,713 ft). If measured from their base at the bottom of the ocean to their peaks, which thrust high above the surface of the Atlantic, the Azores are actually some of the tallest mountains on the planet.
NomadX is proud to offer affordable midterm to long term accommodation in this best-kept secret full of exotic flora, breathtaking unspoiled landscapes, pulsating volcanic activity, and a myriad of dazzling sights at every corner.

Óbidos is a very old village, prior to the foundation of Portugal. The earliest records date back to the Paleolithic time. It is known that around here there have been several people: Celtiberians, Phoenicians, Visigoths, Romans and Muslims. But it is not known for sure neither the date nor the people responsible for the fortification of the village.
After having conquered Lisbon from the moors, D. Afonso Henriques, first King of Portugal, Took the castle of Óbidos in 1148, with the support of Gonçalo Mendes da Maia, the Lider. The village was royal wedding gift Up to 1834. The first time was in 1210, when D. Afonso II offered Óbidos as a wedding gift to his wife, D. Urraca. Later, in 1282, D. Dinis and D. Isabel spent their honeymoon here and the king included the village in the wedding gifts for his wife. From this time, Óbidos became part of the House of Queens, the whole of the goods that the Queens received when they married the king. For belonging to the House of Queens, the village was always taken care of. Monarchs liked to spend seasons in Óbidos and contribute to their development and conservation, financing new constructions and reforms. Many churches have been built, but not only. In the 16th century D. Catarina of Austria, wife of King João III, ordered the construction of the Aqueduct of Usseira and the Fountain of Santa Maria Square. These works were important because allowed the population to have access to water in the village.
The earthquakes felt in Portugal in 1531 and in 1755 caused major damage to buildings and castle walls. In both times, reconstruction and repair works were ordered, not allowing the village to be destroyed. At the Village Door, we are confronted with the wonderful baroque balcony of the Chapel-Oratory of Our Lady of Piety. The tile panel represents the Passion of Christ. This chapel was ordered to be built by King João IV after the Restoration of Independence in 1640, as an act of gratitude to the patron saint.

@le.wolverine keeping things organized with the Nomadx storage system.
According to the last census there are close to eleven million people living in Portugal.
Almost two-thirds of them live in the coastal fourth of the country, with the capital city, Lisbon, and its surrounding metropolitan area having the largest population with around two million people.
Oporto (Porto), the next largest city, has a metropolitan population of about one million.
Most of the current Portuguese population grew from the mixture of all the people who have inhabited and traded in the region over the centuries. The first to settle were the Iberians, and over the years Celts, Romans, Germanic tribes, Moors, Jews, and others migrated into the area and combined to develop a people with unique physical characteristics. Most Portuguese have typical Mediterranean features like brown eyes, brown hair, and a height of less than 6 feet.
Evidence of the Germanic tribes can still be seen in the north of the country, where taller, light-haired and light-eyed people are occasionally encountered, and in the south, traces of the Moorish period are seen in both the physical type and the way of life. In the course of millennia this mingling between people, combined with the country's isolation from Spain and the rest of Europe, gave rise to a population structure that was homogeneous and distinctively Portuguese, both ethnically and culturally. About 80% of the Portuguese population identify themselves as Roman Catholic, but other religions enjoy freedom of worship. Although church and state are separated in the constitution, the country's holidays, its moral and legal codes, health and educational systems, are intertwined with its Catholic heritage.
The Portuguese (mainly those in rural areas) are a deeply superstitious people whose formal Catholicism is profoundly intertwined with pre-Christian beliefs. Popular superstitions involve the phases of the moon and the evil eye, which is feared in a number of situations. Western-style clothing is the norm, and people in the cities dress well. However, vestiges of traditional garb such as berets for men and black shawls for women may still be seen in some rural areas.
Are you a Digital Nomad looking for a visa to stay in Portugal?
Then the D7 PASSIVE INCOME VISA might be what you are looking for.
Visa Duration: One year, but can be renewed for two-year periods after that.
The D7 Passive Income Visa from Portugal is similar to the Rentista Visa in Costa Rica because the main requirement is that you must show proof of sufficient income to live in Portugal, whether that income comes from inside the country or not.
This is an attractive visa for digital nomads looking for a really long-term solution because you can apply for permanent residence in Portugal after five years if you can pass a Portuguese language test.
You also don’t have to pay taxes to Portugal on your foreign income (although, I’m sure it’s complicated to iron that out) if you play your cards right.
And finally, it’s freakin’ Portugal. Sunny, warm, beach-lined, beautiful Portugal.
What’s not to like about settling down here for a few years?!
Portugal is the 11th largest wine producer in the world.
Despite its relatively small size, Portugal conquers an impressive 11th place among the largest wine producers in the world. To understand how impressive this is, Portugal size is around 92.212 km², Spain is 505.990 km² large, and Italy 301.338 km². Portugal vineyards area is the 8th largest in the world, with 224 thousand hectares, and is the 9th biggest wine exporter.
Port Wine is produced in one region only.
Port Wine was born and is exclusively produced in the Douro region, one of the 14 wine regions in Portugal. Douro is the oldest demarcated wine region in the world and was declared a World Heritage by UNESCO in 2001.
All Portuguese wines have an authenticity seal.
If you pick up a bottle of Portuguese wine, you'll see a seal that assures authenticity and quality for every wine within each demarcated region. Besides this seal, on the label you can find other useful information such as the name of the winery or wine estate (Adega or Quinta), the grapes varietal, the grapes region, the year the wine was made, and the quality classification.
Most Portugal's grapes varietals are native.
Unfortunately, many of the Portuguese grape varietals are still unknown to the world. Among hundreds of native grapes, the less unknown ones are Tinta Barroca, Rabigato, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Baga, Alvarinho, and Maria Gomes. Many of these grapes directly descend from pre-historic vine plants that developed in the country and have endured thousands of years of human presence and climate changes.
Portuguese wine is much more than Port Wine.
Port Wine is the main ambassador of the Portuguese wines, but there are a lot more wines produced in Portugal that the world needs to discover, and this is happening every day. The country produces great rose, white, rose, red, and sparkling wines.
One of the several Portuguese wines that is starting to be appreciated all around the world is vinho verde, a white wine. It translates to green wine because it's the name of the region where it is produced. #nomadx#portugal#digitalnomad#digitalnomads#nomadiclife#digitalnomadlife
