Establishing itself as a nation in 1139, Portugal is one of the countries with the oldest continental borders in the World - defined in 1297 by the Treaty of Alcañices. Nevertheless, throughout its history it managed to widely spread its people, together with its culture and poetry; contributing from the sound of the japonese word "arigato", to the introduction of tea in England and the diversity of much more than a hundred million brazillians.
