The Culture of Lisbon and Portugal

Tiles, Fado, Manueline, mosaic pavements, the romance language, the Age of Discovery



Traditional Portuguese pavement


Portugal has a rich culture dating back to prehistoric times, seen in the colorful Celtic-influenced folklore of the north, in the Moorish-influenced Fado music, in its romantic language, distinctive architecture (including its dazzling azulejos and calçadas), painting and distinguished literature, not to mention its welcoming people who have spread its culture around the world ever since the Age of Discovery, and its intriguing History.
