Portugal is on the western edge of the Iberian peninsula, with two archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean. Despite its small land area, it has many landforms and climates between the Atlantic coast and the mountains. Portugal has plenty of prehistoric sites, as well as remnants from the Roman Empire, and the Age of Discovery, when Portuguese explorers found the Cape Route around Africa, and completed the world’s first circumnavigation. While Portugal is modern and developed, it maintains much traditional culture with handicrafts, cuisine, music, and dance. Portugal is home to 17 !(//upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/fd/WV-Unesco- icon-small.svg/15px-WV-Unesco-icon-small.svg.png) UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
