Swallow Bird

The Swallow is one of the animals adopted as a symbol of Portuguese culture. Inspired murals, sculptures, paintings, texts, music, among other products. It is believed that the national connection to this bird occurred due to the dominance of the romantic, because these are symbols of love, loyalty and family, feelings that are well rooted in Portuguese culture. After long-haul flights in search of cooler climates, swallows build their nest on the same site year after year, always with the same partner.
