Almost 3,000 kilometres of coastline, fantastic beaches and stretches of coastline such as the Algarve in the south of the country and a great offer for cultural travellers. With its long and fascinating history, which is also reflected today in monumental buildings such as churches and castles, Portugal attracts around 1.5 million travellers every year. It is not only the country itself that exerts its charm on travellers, but also its special inhabitants.

“Quem vê caras, não vê corações” – "Those who see faces, do not see hearts." With this Portuguese saying, the mentality of the population in Europe's most southwestern country comes across excellently. In general, the inhabitants of Portugal are considered open-minded, modest, friendly and particularly passionate. In any case, an internship stay provides further insights into the cultural diversity of Portugal.
