10 Things that make Portugal such a Remarkable Country

Posted by Nisa Duarte on 15-Apr-2016 16:29:31

All Portuguese are having a long weekend next week, and all because there is a National Holiday, the 25 April, that this year will be at a Monday, fact that made a lot of people that work in Portugal very happy!

But, it is not the given conclusion that people like holidays that is interesting, what is really interesting and unusual is the event that is remembered by this particular Holiday: the most original revolution ever, The Carnation Revolution, the most peaceful and non violent military coup  and civil resistance movement taking down a dictatorial political regime! Since there was no blood and even though the tense vibe that was felt in the streets, all ended up being very cordially solved, and that day a peculiar image stayed forever in the nation imaginary: a lovely little boy celebrating the falling of the dictatorship by putting a live red carnation in a soldier's arm!

Portuguese Do It Better!

Posted by Rita Alves on 11-Apr-2016 21:08:58

Some years ago, I wouldn’t say that in a future I would be writing about Lisbon, other Portugal regions, secret spots, wine and food. Revealing what we Portuguese have to offer in this little but immense and diversified country.

Sometimes it is difficult to express the joy that I feel when visiting my tiny country and the pleasure that I have in showing it. However there is more in Portugal than Pastéis de Belém or Codfish (even when there are 1001 ways of cooking it); we have a wonderful gastronomy from North to South and to accompany a meal, Portuguese wines are mandatory. Portugal has high quality wines and beautiful wine regions, like, probably the most known one, Alto Douro Wine Region, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has breath taking views, which can be seen while walking through the hills or in a sailing boat in Douro River.
