Did you know that Portugal is the EU's largest exporter of olives and the EU’s third-largest producer of tomatoes? The Portuguese like visiting their own country: 83% of the tourist trips they make are within Portugal. Their favourite destinations abroad are Spain, France and the United Kingdom.
80% of the Portuguese are non-smokers, one of the highest shares in the EU.  Portugal has the highest number of generalist medical practitioners in the EU - 241 per 100 000 inhabitants. 

To mark Portugal's National Day (10 June), please find below a selection of facts and figures that we hope you will find interesting.
