WE celebrate PORTUGAL DAY!


Dear Friends,

Today we celebrate the day of our beautiful country, Portugal Day!

The Day of Portugal, Camões and the Portuguese Communities is celebrated annually on June 10, the date of the death of the poet Luís de Camões. This day pays tribute to Portugal, the Portuguese, Lusophone culture and the Portuguese presence throughout the world.

It started as a municipal holiday in Lisbon, dedicated to Camões, elevated by the Estado Novo to a national holiday, as the «Day of Camões, Portugal and the Race». With the 25th of April, this day became known as the Day of Portugal, Camões and the Portuguese Communities.

This year, the 10th of June festivities take place in Braga, with the presence of the President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, who will also be present in the United Kingdom, with Portuguese emigrant communities.

Good holiday!

A huge HUUUUG! Fatima C. Brízio
