Social and Cultural Traits in Portugal

SocialThe oldest sources of Portuguese culture are Celtic, Roman and Visigothic. these were later followed by Moorish and finally sources from colonisation, such as native Brazilian and sub-Saharan African. Other European nations, such as France, Italy and inevitably Spain, have also left a cultural imprint. Art, music and dance are all important, as is drama and theatre, and all have their own modes of expression. In terms of architecture, the Manueline style of Portuguese Late Gothic is particularly distinctive. The Manueline style is best exemplified by the Tower of Belém in Lisbon.
