The Portuguese are warm and hospitable, making this country a safe haven, with vast historical and cultural traditions.
Here we can find influences from other peoples, customs and traditions, especially in the Architecture and Gastronomy, relating to ancient civilizations – Celts, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Suebi, Visigoths and Arabs.
These invasions resulted not only in our geographical position, but also in the diversity of our terrain. All this makes Portugal an ideal destination.
