Welcome to this page of the Embassy of Portugal in Mexico, another instrument for us to keep in touch with our citizens, as well as with the friends of Portugal.

Portugal and México are going through a unique moment in their relationship, both on the economic and cultural spheres. The visit of His Excellency the President of the Repúblic last July was a moment that proved the excellence of our bilateral relations.

2018 is proving to be a unique year, as we face a big and exciting challenge: in November Portugal is the Guest of Honor at the Guadalajara International Book Fair, the biggest literary event of the Spanish-speaking world, and which will bring to the Mexican state of Jalisco the literature of Portugal and much more.

We will certainly have much to share in this page, releasing information about our activities, in particular those connected to the Portuguese language and culture, announcing moments of economic promotion, or alerting to relevant news about Portugal.

Thank you for visiting us!
