THE PORTUGUESE OF TRINIDAD & TOBAGO

Welcome to a world of information on the Portuguese of Trinidad & Tobago!  This site aims to explore the history of Luso-Trinbagonians, that is, those whose ancestors hailed from Portugal, especially from the archipelago of Madeira.  The Portuguese and their descendants have been a vital part of the Caribbean landscape for over 180 years. Today, Portuguese communities represent small minorities in several Caribbean territories. Despite their relatively limited numbers, the contribution of Luso-descendants to our region, in all spheres of life, is of great and lasting importance.
