Estrada Nacional 2 (N2) is the longest Portuguese road, totaling 739.26 kilometers, and the only one in Europe that crosses a country for its entire length (there are only two more in the world: Route 66, in the USA, and Ruta 40 in Argentina).
Established on May 11, 1945 in the Road Plan, Estrada Nacional 2 has the presence of Philippine architecture constructions, referring the beginning of its history to past centuries, where it was created to centrally serve the Portuguese kingdom, calling itself Estrada Real.

The National Road Route 2 is the purest way to get to know Portugal, its diversity, culture, landscape, demography, gastronomy and heritage, recognized worldwide.
