Portugal has been a largely homogeneous nation steeped in historic traditions for nearly 1,000 years, and its borders have remained largely unchanged since the 13th century. Yet despite strong cultural unity, rural and urban Portuguese are split by markedly disparate attitudes and traditions, resulting in a fascinating milieu that defies easy generalization.About the Author:
