    In the VIII century (around the year 711), the Arabs, also called Muslims or Moors, coming from the north of Africa, invaded the Iberian peninsula from the south, after crossing the Strait of Gibraltar. Commanded by Tarique, they defeated the Visigoths during the Battle of Guadalete. They managed to take possession of the entire peninsula with the exception of the Asturias Mountains, to the north, where many Christians took refuge.

    The influence of the Arabs remained strongly in Portugal since they remained for more than 5 centuries (711-1249) in a large part of the current territory of Portugal and Spain. The remains of this people are accentuated especially in the south of the country in the Algarve region. Scientific knowledge was very important in the fields of mathematics, astrology, architecture, culture, poetry, music, medicine and navigation. They mainly erected temples (mosques) and palaces still present as vestiges in Portugal. The Muslim culture has taken root in the Portuguese culture in horticulture, the Portuguese language and also the name of cities such as Algarve, Aljezur or Alcantara.

    The Moors were definitively expelled from Portugal in 1249 with the capture of the city Faro, in the Algarve, by King D. Afonso III.

    I don't think we are on average better looking than folks in other European countries.
    The only noticeable difference is that women on average take better care of themselves, pay more attention to their diet, are more physically active and enjoy more the outdoors, so they look much better as they get older than women from some Eastern European countries, but the standard of living is also much higher here.

    It is absurd to assess a region based only on individual preferences and the prevalence of particular phenotypes.
