"A tribute to Luís de Camões"

Aside of the national day, it is a tribute to the great Portuguese poet Luís de Camões. He died on June 10, 1580. Luís de Camões wrote the most famous Portugal's epic work: "Os Lusíadas".

"Dia da Raça"

Previously, in the period of the "Estado Novo", from 1933 till the Carnation Revolution in 1974, this day was to celebrate the Portuguese race. In this dictatorial period, they called it as "Dia da Raça: a raça portuguesa ou dos portugueses".

Every year, another city is the home of the huge celebrations. The President of Portugal will be present in this city for the tribute with a lot of parades.
