Cultural heritage and traditions

Understanding the Portuguese culture is learning and experimenting with the amazing variety of traditions and craftsmanship that attempt to survive in this modern world, thanks to the passion and courage of the men and women determined to share their art and leave a mark in the cultural history of Portugal.

Some of the most characteristic ones are the ceramic arts with the azulejos that cover the main part of monuments and public buildings, the jewelry arts with the filigree work, the basketry work, the embroidery work…

Portugal is also famous for its gastronomy, full of typical sweets, cod dishes, and a lot of tasty culinary preparations… Living in Portugal means participating in typical regional carnivals and events, celebrating the most popular Saints, entering in the wine world that is the Douro, the Dão, the Bairrada… supporting the fishermen of the “arte xávega” (dragnet fishing), true artisanal fishing, or even learning about the artisanal salt or rice culture/crop…

There are many traditions to discover, but not mentioning the Fado or hearing this poetic music would be like forgetting the extremely important cultural heritage that makes the soul of Portugal.
