Portugal lies along the Atlantic coast of the Iberian Peninsula in south Western Europe. It shares a border with Spain in the east and north, while the Atlantic dominates the coastline in the west and south. Occupying about 16 percent of the Iberian Peninsula, Portugal (including Madeira and Azores) has a population of over 10 million people. Porto is often referred to as the second city of Portugal, situated within an urban area of over 1.3 million inhabitants. In demographic terms, the resident population numbers about 240,000 in an area covering 42 km. Located close to the northwest coast, Porto is a thriving university town. It is a city rich in historical monuments, starting the Luiz I Bridge and Monastery of Serra do Pilar, built along the hills overlooking the mouth of the Douro River, is an outstanding urban landscape with a 2,000-year history.
It is a stunningly beautiful city, on the right bank of the River Douro, and a great place to study in northern Portugal. The cost of living in Porto is very affordable and the locals are very endearing and welcoming.
