Its unique heritage is a true testament to our ability to embrace the unknown, to influence and be influenced by different ways of life. The Portugal Pavilion presents this multicultural unity as our legacy for the future, giving visitors a glimpse of what it will be like to visit, invest, work and live in Portugal.
