  • PORTUGUESE CULTURAL LIFE Authors: - Abel Freire nº1 - Diana Luís nº5 - Inês Ricardo nº8 - Joana Águas nº10
  • WHAT IS THE PORTUGUESE CULTURAL LIFE? The Portuguese culture has its roots in Celtic, Germanic, Iberian and Roman cultures. The cultural diferences of Portuguese people can be seen in the types of houses, the religious belief, gastronomy and folklore, or even in the typical Portuguese pavement.
  • THE PORTUGUESE PEOPLE The Portuguese people is generally reserved and patient, but it is also tolerant with differences, flexible and open to experimentation. The Catholic Church still has a considerable influence, even though the majority of ‘Catholics’ say that they are not-practicing. The family is still the basis of Portuguese life. View slide

  • PORTUGUESE ARCHITECTURE Portuguese architecture has always followed the trends of the rest of Europe, although with some delay. It was only during the Manuelino period (king Manuel) that a considerable level of development was reached, the artistic avant-garde of the time, because this style makes a smooth transition from the Gothic to the Renaissance. Currently Portuguese architecture is aware of what is happening in the international art world and we have famous contemporary architects:  Álvaro Siza Vieira  Eduardo Souto de Moura  Fernando Távora
  • PORTUGUESE PAINTING Portuguese painting, like architecture always tries to follow international trends. In the early twentieth century, a new wave of Futurists appeared. They could have done important revolutions in art, but due to their early deaths they did not. Some of these painters and others from different ages are:  Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso  Ângelo de Sousa  Armando Alves
  • PORTUGUESE SCULPTURES In the sculpture world we have the following artists:  António Soares dos Reis  António Teixeira Lopes  Bottelho  Canto da Maia
  • PORTUGUESE MUSIC Portuguese traditional music is famous for the folklore and fado. Our most famous singer of fado was Amália. She’s the queen of Fado.
  • PORTUGUESE THEATER In Portugal, the development of the theater was a bit delayed. Gil Vicente, seen as the "father" of the Portuguese theater, started the history of the national theater in the sixteenth century. The theater caught the attention of the audience, especially of the upper class. It was in the twentieth century that the theater reached the masses through the Theatre Magazine.
  • THE DANCE The Portuguese folklore is varied, since each region of the country has its traditions. Folk dances are folk dances for everyone. Most recently scholarly dances appeared, performed by professional dancers. These new dances came from the increasing openness to new cultures. Here we can highlight:  Olga Roriz  Madalena Victorino  Pedro Romeiras
