7 things to pack for a trip to Portugal
Algoso: from powerful clans, to many goats and donkeys

What Makes Portugal Unique?

France has the Eiffel Tower, Spain has the flamenco.
What makes Portugal different?
Let's start with The Fado.
Below is a poem by Aníbal Nazaré.
You asked me the other day if I know what is Fado
I said I did not know.
You were surprised.
Without knowing what I was saying, I lied to you
And said I did not know, but now will tell you:
Cursed souls
Lost nights
Bizarre shadows
Love, jealousy
Ash and flames
Pain and sin
All this exists-
All this is sad-
All this is Fado.
