Although Portugal is considered one of the poorest countries in Europe, the country is well developed. Its history dates back to the Middle Ages, in which the year 1139 is seen as the year in which Portugal became independent. At the time, Portugal was a world power with overseas territories in Asia, Africa and South America. Columbus is said to have made his voyages of discovery from Portugal.
