The Portuguese pavilion is made entirely of cork, decorated with typical Portuguese tiles, "AZULEJOS", which shows the importance of tradition and continuity in this Iberian country.

Cork has been produced in Portugal for centuries from the regrowing bark of cork oaks and is the world leader in this material, which is also used for construction.

This Pavilion was reused after the Expo.
