Emigration and the Sea

Educated Portuguese have often looked abroad for career opportunities and this chapter looks at some categories of these estrangeirados, ranging from princesses to diplomats, political exiles, writers and artists. Parts of Portugal have always been closely integrated into the economy of Spain where seasonal migrants sought work. With the formation of the European Common Market large numbers of Portuguese settled in France and Germany and in more recent times in Switzerland, Luxemburg and Britain. This chapter looks at the experience of emigrants in these countries and reflects on their continuing impact on communities in Portugal. It became more common for emigrants to return either seasonally or on retirement and for them to retain links with the communities from which they departed.
