The event “A Portuguese Home” promoted by the Embassy of Portugal in Ankara, in association with AICEP, Camões, and with the significant collaboration and sponsorship of St. Regis Istanbul, will take place at the referred hotel from April 26th to May 6th.
This initiative seeks to bring Portugal to Istanbul, showcasing our culture, our design, our gastronomy, our music, in short, our essence, all laid out in a typically Portuguese Home (Uma Casa Portuguesa). We will also recreate a Lisbon Fado house, evoking the bohemian milieu of the Portuguese capital, the birth of Fado. There, Ana Laíns will delight us with the nostalgia of Fado’s poetry and melodies. The dinners served (every night except sundays) will also call forth the exquisite fragrances of the Portuguese cuisine.
Give us the pleasure of your company. We will be waiting…
