Our Latest Issue


Welcome to Portugal’s broad spectrum, English language magazine … with country-wide coverage. Distributed freely throughout Portugal and around the world — to long-time residents, newcomers, and those planning-to-move to Portugal from wherever!

With the steady increase of Americans and other English-speakers in Portugal, it was obvious — living in the country’s interior — that almost all news and commentary were produced and focused on one region (the Algarve) with nods to Lisbon and Porto … and presumed that all English-speakers in Portugal were British.

Something more than fragmented Facebook groups and online “expat” forums was needed to cover stories of interest throughout all parts of Portugal to people residing here or in the process of relocating … from the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Belgium, South Africa, Netherlands, Ireland, and other English language countries.

That’s why we created Portugal Living Magazine, the thoughtful magazine for people everywhere with Portugal on their minds.

Layering a variety of engaging features, integrated departments, continuing columns, commentary, photos, and original artwork, Portugal Living Magazine presents a wide variety of stories about people and places, invaluable information, and answers to questions about living in Portugal.

Offering free digital subscriptions and promoting a national community orientation for expats and immigrants, Portugal Living Magazine took root and flourishedtook root and flourished … growing to over 100 pages per issue. The magazine hosts a popular Facebook Page, website, and YouTube channel.

Different in content and purposes than Facebook groups and online forums, Portugal Living Magazine is delivered directly to subscriber email inboxes. Our Facebook Page is updated daily with dozens of news stories and a wealth of irresistible pictures, while our website includes everything from current and future issues to blog posts, linked resources, and advertising or sponsorship information. Our YouTube channel premiered in February 2022, and we’ve spun off an interactive Facebook group – Portugal Living Q&A.

For those who prefer the feel of paper on their fingers while reading, low-cost, environmentally friendly, print-on-demand copies of Portugal Living Magazine are available from Amazon sites everywhere.

Read our current issue and subscribe to future ones–all at no cost. Complete past issues are also posted on our website, as is a peek at upcoming issues. Some of the best blog posts about Portugal living are conveniently grouped on our website. Advertising data and details, links grouped categorically to indispensable resources from our sponsors and supporters, and complete contact information for reaching us are all on Portugal Living Magazine’s website.

After publishing just seven issues, Portugal Living Magazine has grown to over 100 pages per issue and was recently honored for its excellence with a 2022 Marcom Gold Award in the Magazines category. MarCom Awards is an international creative competition administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals that recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communication professionals.
