Unlike some other European countries, whose borders have changed time and time again, Portugal's borders have remained virtually unchanged for around 800 years. Perhaps it is for this reason that even though Portugal is a small country in comparison to neighbouring Spain, the Portuguese sense of national identity is strong and great pride is taken in the language and literature. The distinct Algarve region to the south boasts sweeping sandy beaches and the warm Mediterranean climate. Albufeira has grown from a fishing port to become one of the main resorts here, with the nearby Vilamoura offering superb leisure and marina facilities. Portimao is one of the largest towns in the region, with a pedestrianized town centre that makes it easy to take a relaxing stroll around the many shops, cafes and restaurants.
