Portugal is a country on the western coast of the Iberian Peninsula. It is also the westernmost country in Europe. Portugal covers 92,090 sq km (35,645 sq mi) and has a population of 10.6 million people (2011 estimate). The capital and biggest city is Lisbon. The country observes the Western European Time zone, which is UTC+0 and in summer the Western European Summer Time zone, UTC+1.

Portugal proper comprises the mainland on the Iberian Peninsula and the island groups of Madeira and Azores, both in the Atlantic Ocean. The Tagus river which flows from Spain before emptying into the Atlanctic Ocean cuts across mainland Portugal. The highest peak in Portugal is the 2,351-m (7,713 ft) Mount Pico in the Azores. The tallest summit on mainland Portugal is Serra da Estrela, at 1,991 m (6,532 ft).
