By 2007, Portugal had 10,617,575 inhabitants of whom about 332,137 were legal immigrants.
Portugal is a fairly homogeneous country linguistically and religiously. Ethnically, the Portuguese people are mainly a combination of pre-Roman Iberian Celtic tribes, Lusitanians and others, with a fair amount of Roman, Germanic (Visigoths and Suevi) and some minor elements, essentially Arab-Berbers, and Jews.
Portuguese is the official language of Portugal. Mirandese is also recognized as a co-official language in several municipalities in northeastern Portugal.
