Message from Jorge Patrão,
( translation by mlopesazevedo)
Portugal has a part of its enormous history of almost 900 years in common with the viogorous history of the Sephardic world.
The scientific cosmography of the Discoveries, the development of the wool and textile industries, the first global actions are conquests of Portugal and Portuguese Jews.
The time has come to definitevily elevate this Portuguese Sephardic identity.
The Serra da Estrela, region of the great Lusitanian mountain, finds itself surrounded by cities and villages full of influence of that common history.
In November, come re-live it with eyes on the future.
The President of Turismo Serra da Estrela
Portugal surged definitevily in European civilization with the Discoveries, and the Discoveries are a cultural act, they are an act of civilizational creation. We created the modern world, nevertheless our first discovery was the idea of discovery.
