Good day to all. Please, be warned on visiting some rural areas (villages) in Portugal. I am a portuguese citizen who´s been married (legal civil union) for nearly two years and on my return to the country with my partner, we have been insulted, descriminated and denied acess to legal issues provided by the city all (Camara Municipal) and some people, where we are living (Crato). Our situation is quite desperate, as I was offered a work proposition, which turned out to be false. Please, be carefull in accepting woring offers and most important the areas. I wish we could go to another country.
