Reasons to move to Portugal


Living in a foreign country allows you to embrace new practices, and one of them is a new language. Portuguese is the sixth most spoken language in the world, and picking it up can be handy and enjoyable to learn. Furthermore, the people of Portugal would be more than happy to converse with you in their native language.


The people of Portugal are some of the friendliest in the world, always ready to help you out if you are lost or in trouble. Don’t be surprised if complete strangers go out of their way to help you take a photo of yourself and your family, or stop what they are doing to guide you in getting from A to B.

It's beautiful

Portugal is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful countries to live in. With stunning rivers, hot beaches that people flock to during the summer, scenic sea cliffs and nature reserves, your breath will be taken away more than once, while exploring this country. Portugal also has age old monuments and buildings such as the many museums filled with art, and expertly constructed churches.

Ease of travel around Europe

Portugal might be at the cusp of Europe, but it is still only a couple of hours flight time to other great cities when you get the travel itch. It would be a crime not to explore Europe while living in Portugal, even if its just a weekend getaway to Spain, Brazil, Morocco and many more.
