We are the flag of Portugal on the internet


This website was, too, developed thinking about people with special needs. So, we used the latest and universal accessibility standards, which provide a good browsing experience to all who visit this site, regardless of their limitations.

It was our intention to build a website in accordance to WCAG 2.0 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0) and with the specifications of the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium). For this we used XHTML 1.0 and CSS standards. We are not responsible, however, for content which by their nature are inaccessible to some users, as in case of videos. The website has been optimised for Internet Explorer 9.0 or a later version, with resolution of 1120x768 pixels and viewing characters in "medium" option.
