“Saudade,” the famous Portuguese word that has no translation, could be described as a profound state of longing for something you love. It's the love that lingers after someone is gone. It has become a thread that runs through all aspects of Portuguese society, the foundation of its mentality, a tune that always plays subtly in the background.
The meaning of that Portuguese word explain what visitors feel when they visit our country and leave. The monuments, the gastronomy, the climate, the people and other attractions explain the feeling of "falling in love, in Lisbon".
