Bad things about Living in Portugal:

Bugs – cockroaches, snakes and flies
The heat of the day (inland countryside areas predominantly)
Barking and aggressive dogs
Language barrier – although most were learning Portuguese they found it hard to speak it in an emergency
Bureaucracy can be tough
Some remote areas can be difficult to access without a car and far from hospitals
Rental and property scams – particularly in Lisbon
Petty theft in Lisbon – e.g. pick pocketing on the Lisbon Metro to be aware of
High Electricity bills
Matriculation of vehicles is difficult and second hand cars are expensive in Portugal
Sometimes there are two prices – local price and ‘estrangeiro’ price.

Lisbon the Portuguese city with the best standard of living and development in the entire national territory.
It is the country's capital and the city that contributes the most to national wealth.
Lisbon must be the most tolerant city in the world, where everyone can live in peace, regardless of race, color, sexual and religious orientation, it is a community totally open to foreigners.
Lisbon has evolved over the last 10 years with levels of development above the European average, in 2021 it was the green capital of Europe and developed a unique lifestyle in the country.
The people are very friendly and it is a city of unique natural beauty and idyllic beaches.
I've lived in many places around the world, but this city captivated me for the rest of my life. I will stay here for sure
