PATRIMONY

Castles, museums, fortresses, historic centers, monasteries, churches and cities, make up the architectural heritage of Portugal. Forests, vineyards, mountains and beaches, is the natural heritage of our country. And, fado, folklore, embroidery, rugs and jewelry is our cultural heritage.

Centuries of history are engraved on the walls of monuments. Winding cobbled streets and wide open squares.

Our whole history can be found in the traditional flavors and words that are passed down from generation to generation. Centuries of history left by the different peoples who make these lands their home.

Portugal is among the fifteen countries in the world for the UNESCO World Heritage.

From the historical centers of Évora, Porto and Guimarães, the Tower of Belém and the Jerónimos Monastery, the cave paintings of Foz Côa or the Laurissilva Forest, on the island of Madeira.

Every year, millions of tourists come to Portugal in search of this heritage. And it is with great pride that we show visitors this past that we have carefully preserved.
