The Tour in Portugal with the name “Visit the Land of your Forefathers” was lovingly prepared for the many people in the whole world who have roots in this country. For you, visiting Portugal has always been a dream, since you were children, because you have heard so many stories about your family’s past. In fact, throughout the centuries, the Portuguese who left Portugal started families like yours in the countries that welcomed them.
Portuguese emigration began in the 16th century, after Pedro Álvares Cabral arrived in Brazil in 1500. Every century, hundreds of thousands of Portuguese (from the elite to the poorest) decided to live abroad. At this moment, the United Nations estimates the number of Portuguese immigrants to be over 2 million!
Apart from the archipelagos of Madeira and Azores, the regions from which most emigrants left were those in the north of Portugal. The highlights are clearly Minho, Trás-os-Montes, Porto, Douro, Beiras and, at times, Estremadura (Lisbon region).
From these regions, the names Viana do Castelo, Guimarães, Braga, Bragança, Vila Real, Chaves, Guarda, Viseu, Castelo Branco, etc, etc, have certainly appeared at the table during your family reunions.
