Today, on the 10th of June, the Portuguese celebrate their national holiday.

Dia de Portugal, de Camões e das Comunidades Portuguesas

  • In the first place it is the death of the deceased national poet Luís de Camões, who wrote the National Epos “The Lusiaden”.
  • In honor of Camões the city of Lisbon celebrates its city holiday on 10 June.
  • What should not be missing in Portugal is coffee! And so it is prepared:


In Portugal, caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee are always chosen. Milk froth is not common and a glass of milk is ordered as “Copo de leite”.
Espresso is served with sugar and sometimes with a cinnamon stick instead of a spoon. And of course you have a Pastel de Nata with your coffee!
How each coffee looks like, you can see by clicking.
