Two Worlds United Programs in Portugal for High School students
have flocked to Portugal's extraordinary beaches and graceful
palaces for years, but for the majority of students the country
is a rare and wonderful surprise. Portugal has changed little
over recent decades and remains largely unspoiled. In Portugal,
students find warm and
unaffected people, and unique sights.
Ninety-two percent of all visitors to Portugal arrive in Lisbon,
designated as Europe's Cultural Capital in 1995. This prompted
the renovation and improvement of the city's major historic and
cultural monuments, including the venerable Museum
of Ancient Art, the Tower
of Belém, and the Belém Monastery.
Portugal's economy made great advances through the 1970s and
1980s, and despite an economic downturn in the early '90s, it is
recovering due mostly to public and private investment as well
as export growth.
