ABOUT  PORTUGAL OVERSEAS

The 5th edition of DUO connections Portugal  overseas comes with a dash of nostalgia and a great deal of hope.

The sea , present in countless Portuguese poems, from Camões to Pessoa , is a metaphor for human deeds and feelings taken by the adventurous and uncertain spirit, lulled by a lot of courage. Also, he is symbol  of the past and present, besides being the eternal and unbreakable  link between Brazil and Portugal . The sea, then, separates us physically, but unites us spiritually.

Portugal inspires yesterday, today and forever: just like in the great navigations, this small country launches trends in luxury tourism , offering experiences that go far beyond the essentials .

of 15 at 18  March live a journey of personal and professional growth . Virtually, through the voice of specialists and luxury hotels, we will together cross borders, ease nostalgia and fill our eyes with landscapes of rare beauty, culture, history and inspiring experiences towards a new tomorrow.
