Since February 16, the season of the cross between France and Portugal has been launched. Lepetitjournal takes a look at the events organized in April, in Portugal, as part of this cultural event that strengthens Franco-Portuguese relations.
The France-Portugal season 2022 At its best. Relations between the two countries are in the spotlight and will continue until next October. One of the goals is to bring the two countries closer.
