    Yes, Portugal is one of modern countries that made up Roman Hispania.

    And btw, Valle Latina is a different place in Europe. They never spoke Portuguese or Spanish in Latina / Rome.

    Why in the world do people have such a problem with such well documented written history.

    No, because they do not speak Spanish.  They can be considered Latino though, especially the people in Brazil who also speak Portuguese.

      Doesn’t Latino mean from Latin America?

    They're a little bit different... I believe they are culturally more closer to Brazilians than to the Spanish or Mexicans.

    sometimes, but usually not. Portugal is part of what used to be the roman province "hispania", but Portuguese don't have Spanish ("castillano") as native language
