Portuguese Serfs are the lowest tier troops of the Portuguese rural troop tree, and therefore one of the most basic soldiers available for armies of the Kingdom of Portugal. They are usually equipped with small one-handed axes or spears, round or kite shields and light armor.

Portuguese Serfs can be recruited - for a fee of 10 denars - from any village of castillian culture, which are the following: Alenquer, Alijó, Almeida, Amares, Arganil, Aroca, Baiaõ, Barcelos, Canaveses, Lamego, Maia, Mangualde, Miradela, Mogadouro, Montemor-o-Velho, Nazare, Penedono, Tábua, Sabrosa, Sintra, Vizela.

Remember: the culture of a settlement doesn't change if it's conquered by other faction, or even if the original holding faction is destroyed. You'll be able to recruit Portuguese Serfs from the villages above at any point of the game (except when they have just been raided, of course).
