About Portugal

Portugal places in the southwest of Europe and it is formed by three territorial areas: the archipelagos of Madeira and the Azores and the mainland with 18 districts. It has a total area of 92,072 km² and over 10 million inhabitants. It is located in the Iberian Peninsula and its coast is bathed by the Atlantic Ocean.

The nation’s capital city is Lisbon. Its history is noticeable for the discoveries of the Portuguese navigators. Therefore, the Portuguese Culture suffered many influences, but maintained its individuality and distinction.

Those who visit the country are immediately seduced by its typical nostalgic music, the most famous and traditional Fado, which was elevated to Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) in a declaration adopted at the Sixth Intergovernmental Committee of this international organization, held in Bali, Indonesia, between 22 and 29 November 2011.

There are a wide range of visual arts in Portugal, starting with the Paleolithic Graffiti found in the Côa Valley, to the paint of the most famous contemporary artist, Paula Rêgo.

The most prestigious cultural heritage of the country is its architectural art. With an infinite variety of popular constructions, often covered with “tiles”, with the typical blue pottery, the works of the late Gothic period, the “Manueline”, or examples of Baroque architecture are remarkable. This wealth has been recognized by UNESCO, which declared some Portuguese cities as World Heritage.

In modern architecture there are architects with international recognition, such as Eduardo Souto Moura, Alvaro Siza, Goncalo Byrne and Tomás Taveira.

In recent decades, some Portuguese footballers as Eusébio, Luis Figo, Rui Costa and Cristiano Ronaldo achieved worldwide fame as well.

The President of the Republic, elected by universal suffrage for a term of five years, has limited powers.

The parliament consists of 230 deputies elected for a term of four years.

During the months of June, July and August are celebrated, all over the country, several festivities dedicated to the so-called Popular Saints (like St. Peter, St. Anthony, St. John), in which deserve the dances and popular singing have the leading role.

Portugal joined the EU in 1986.

A Short History of Portugal

Portugal is a small country situated in the extreme West of Europe in close contact with the Atlantic Ocean. This contact marks the main stage of its history. Portuguese people ventured out to the sea, giving birth to the epic of the discoveries. However, the history of Portugal goes back to the XII Century (1128), when its first king (D. Afonso Henriques) achieved independence from the kingdom of Castile and Leon.
Away from the military conflict with the Castilians, it was time to expand the borders to the south, conquering land to the Muslims that had been installed in the South of the Iberian Peninsula since the VIII Century (711).

This process, called reconquest, is completed in the middle of the XIII Century, definitely fixing its frontiers in 1297 (Treaty of Alcanises defines the border between Portugal and Castile), which remained relatively stable until today.

From the beginning of the XV Century the extensive Portuguese coast served as incentive for the Portuguese navigators, who ventured out into the unknown, and thus building a vast overseas empire. The process of discovery begins in 1415 with the conquest of Ceuta and ends up in 1543 with the arrival of the Portuguese to Japan.

In this period there were important events, such as the discovery of the island of Porto Santo (1418) by João Gonçalves Zarco; the island of Madeira by João Vaz Teixeira; the five islands that constitute the core group of the Azores archipelago by Diogo de Silves, sailing beyond the Cape of Good Hope (Cabo da Boa Esperança) by Bartolomeu Dias (1487), the discovery of the sea route to India by Vasco da Gama (1498), the discovery of Brazil by Pedro Álvares Cabral (1500), among many other achievements that could be noted and that gradually forged an empire in history, spread by the 5 Continents.

Between 1580 and 1640 Portugal was again under the purview of Castile, having regained its independence with the ascent to the throne in December 1st 1640 of D. John IV, Duke of Bragança. The Bragança dynasty reigned in Portugal until 1910, date on which the Portuguese Republic was implemented.
In recent years Portugal lived throughout various crises and was devoid of its prominent role that enjoyed in the Far East until 1580; like the Lisbon earthquake in 1755, French invasions (1807–1809 and 1810–11), or the independence of Brazil (1822).

The recent history of Portugal is marked by the establishment of an authoritarian political regime called Estado Novo (1933–1974) and its final defeat in April 25th 1974, through the acclaimed “Carnation Revolution” (Revolução dos Cravos). It was a military coup carried out peacefully, and the red carnation that soldiers displayed in their rifles became its major symbol.

A consequence of the democratization process of Portuguese politics, which began with the “Carnation Revolution”, was the opening of Portugal to Europe. In March of 1977 the process of negotiations for accession to the European Economic Community (current EC-European Commission) started and it was completed in June 1985 with the signing of the accession treaty.


The history of Portugal left indelible marks on the culture of the country, being notable the diverse influences that formed a rich and diverse heritage. From North to South there are innumerable monuments that speak for different moments of the Portuguese history.

Even before becoming independent from Castile, the Portuguese territory was occupied by people of different cultures, which since prehistory were leaving their mark. Example of that are the engravings of Vila Nova de Foz Côa, traces of human occupation of the Upper Palaeolithic, which are worldly famous.
In the period of the Neolithic abound the megalithic monuments of various typologies. The more widespread are the Menhirs (near the town of Monsaraz: Menhir of Bulhoa, of the Outeiro, Herdade dos Perdigões, Herdade das Vidigueiras), the Cromlechs (Almendres, Xarez, etc.) and the Dolmens (Antas) (Anta Grande do Zambujeiro in Valverde – Évora, Anta of Pavia in Mora-Évora, Anta Grande of Commendation of the Church in Montemor-o-Novo (Anta Grande da Comenda da Igreja em Montemor-o-Novo), Dolmen Barrosa in Vila Praia de Âncora-Viana do Castelo, etc.).

From the iron age the most characteristic monuments are the Castros that populate the mountains of Northern Portugal (Citânia de Briteiros situated on top of the hill of São Romão, in the parish of Salvador de Briteiros, Guimarães municipality; Citânia de Santa Luzia in Viana do Castelo-Monte de Santa Luzia, etc.)
With the passage of the Romans, the more living testimonies are possibly the ruins of Conímbriga. Traces of Roman passage can also be found in Pax Julia (the name of the city of Beja, Portugal, at the time of the Roman domination of the Iberian Peninsula); Aquæ Flaviæ (Roman designation of the current city of Chaves) and Bracara Augusta (the Roman city, founded by César Augusto in 27 a.c., which would later give rise to the modern city of Braga).

The Islamic presence in the South lasted more than 5 centuries, so it is possible to find several monuments from this period (Church of Our Lady of the Annunciation, also referred to as Church of Mértola, in the Alentejo located in the parish, town and municipality of Mértola, district of Beja; Paderne Castle in the Algarve; Bridge from the town of Faro, etc.).

From medieval times it stands out a rich architectural heritage, both military (Castle of Guimarães, Moncorvo Tower; Castle of Castro Cabreiro, etc.) and religious. They are frequent, especially in Northern Portugal, Romanesque constructions (S. Pedro de Rates, Sanfins de Friestas, S. Salvador de Brasões, etc.), while in the South the great Gothic buildings dominate (monastery of Alcobaça, Batalha monastery, monastery of Santa Clara in Coimbra, popularly known as the Convent of Santa Clara-a-Velha, located on the left bank of the Mondego River, close to the downtown of the city of Coimbra, the Convent of São Francisco in the city of Porto).

The period of discovery was the motto for the formation of a decorative and sculptural style that accompanies the final Gothic (Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, Torre de Belém, Convent of Christ in Tomar).
It follows the Baroque period (Mafra National Palace, Clérigos Tower, Solar de Mateus), that in Portugal presents peculiar characteristics as the valorisation of gilded woodcarvings (Altar-Mor of the Cathedral of Braga, the interior of the Tibães Monastery and Convent of São Francisco in Porto), and tiling (the Carmo Church in Porto, Azulejaria do Jardim do Poço in Castelo Branco).

In the XIX Century occurs the romanticism, a period of great imagination (Pena Palace, Quinta da Regaleira, Palacete de Monserrate in Sintra), in which it is still possible to find examples of iron and glass architecture, as the D. Luís Bridge in Porto, the interior of the Museum of Electricity in Lisbon, or the Rossio station, also in Lisbon; or even Art Nouveau.

In the first half of the XX Century, the Portuguese architecture oscillates between the official language of the new State (Eden Theatre, Reitoria da Cidade Universitária, or the Casa da Moeda), and the first echoes of modernism (Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation building, or the States Quarter in Alvalade).

The second half of the century, in particular from the “Carnation Revolution”, is marked by the work of two Portuguese architects, who were awarded the Pritzker Prize: Álvaro Siza Vieira (1992), who created real milestones in the history of Portuguese and international architecture, such as the Boa Nova tea house, the Piscina das Marés in Leça da Palmeira, the Serralves Museum, the Church of Marco de Canaveses, the Municipal Library of Viana do Castelo; and Eduardo Souto Moura (2011) with the works of the Braga Municipal Stadium, the Casa das Histórias in Cascais, Casa das Artes in Porto, the Santa Maria do Bouro Guest-House, Trindade Metro Station, the Centro of Arte Contemporânea de Bragança, the Hotel of Bom Sucesso in Óbidos, the Market place of Braga, the Marginal of Matosinhos-South, the Crematorium of Kortrijk (Belgium), the Pavilhão of Portugal in the 11th Venice Architecture Biennale (Italy), and the Casa Llabia (Spain).

Religion and Language

Portuguese people are mostly Catholic, but the Portuguese Constitution guarantees religious freedom, translated in the coexistence, in Portugal, of various religious cults.

Of a Latin root, the Portuguese language is the third most spoken European language in the world with about 200 million speakers. The Portuguese-speaking countries are spread all over the four corners of the world: Africa (Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique and Sao Tome and Principe), South America (Brazil), and Asia (East Timor). In Portugal a good part of the citizens have also communication skills in English, French and Spanish.


The climate in Portugal varies significantly from region to region, being influenced by topographic relief, latitude and the proximity of the sea, providing mild winters, especially in the Algarve region.

In the North of Portugal, Beira Alta, Beira Baixa and Beira Litoral, especially in the areas close to Spain, winters are colder, although the temperatures are moderate, when compared to the rest of Europe. There is some snowfall, more frequent in Serra da Estrela, the highest point of Portugal continental (1991m), where it is possible to find conditions for ski.

Summers are hot and dry, especially in inland regions (Trás-os-montes and Alentejo), and on the coast the heat is moderated by the maritime influence. During the Autumn sunny days with mild temperatures are often, which, when occurring at the beginning of November, tend to be popularly referred to as “the summer of Saint Martin” due to the proximity of the date, in which Saint Martin is celebrated (11th of November).

Time Zone

The time zone in continental Portugal, during the winter, is the time of the Meridian of Greenwich, commonly known as Western European time or Universal Time (TU); in early summer, this time is advanced in 60 minutes.

Winter time corresponds to the period between the last Sunday of October and the last Sunday of the following March; summer time includes the period between the last Sunday of March and the last Sunday of the following October.

Banks and Currency

Portugal is a founding member of the euro zone, so its currency is the Euro (EUR).
Bank branches in Portugal are open between the 8:30 a.m. at 15:00 p.m., from Monday to Friday. Debit card (MB) payment is one of the most widely accepted in Portugal. There are also ATM machines (Multibanco), which accept a wide variety of cards.

The number of students per class is reduced, so as to allow a greater participation and integration of the students.

Tuition at ESG requires an in-person training resulting, afterwards, at the end of each semester, in a continuous assessment grade, measured quantitatively on a scale between 0 and 20 values. In addition to this continuous assessment, there are two moments of appeal evaluation:

1- The regular moment of appeal evaluation takes place at the end of each semester, according to the academic calendar approved by the Scientific Council for each academic year, taking into account the following:

a) Appeal assessment is mandatory for students, who obtained, in the continuous assessment, an evaluation grade higher than seven (7) values, inclusive, and lower than twelve (12) values.
b) Students, who scored less than seven (7) values in the continuous assessment of any Curricular Unit, have automatically failed, and are not allowed to enrol in the regular moment of appeal evaluation.
c) Exempted students (who obtained marks equal or higher than twelve (12) values) are allowed to enrol in the regular moment of appeal evaluation, so as to improve their grade;

2- At the end of the semester, according to the academic calendar approved by the Scientific Council, occurs the special evaluation moment of appeal for all of the curricular units of the semester, taking into account the following:
a) The special evaluation moment of appeal is open to all students who obtained, in the continuous assessment evaluation, a classification equal or higher than seven (7) values, and less than twelve (12) values.
b) Students, who scored less than seven (7) values in the continuous assessment of any Curricular Unit, have automatically failed and are not allowed to enrol in the special moment of appeal evaluation,
c) Exempted students (who obtained marks equal or higher than twelve (12) values) are allowed to enrol in the special moment of appeal evaluation, so as to improve their marks. Only two improving exams per curricular unit are allowed.

Exchange and Mobility students can take exams upon the same conditions as local students.

The examinations can be written, practical and/or oral presentations.

Academic activities are held from Monday to Saturday, usually between the 09:00 am and 08:00 pm.

The Portuguese classification is expressed quantitatively in a scale from 0 to 20 values/ points, being 10 values the minimum rating of approval. In terms of qualitative ranking, it assumes the following intervals and appropriate terminology:

10 to 13 – Satisfactory | 14 and 15 – Good | 16 and 17 – Very good | 18 to 20 – Excellent
