Portuguese President on 3-day Luxembourg visit

There were celebrations on the streets of Luxembourg City on Tuesday as Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa arrived on a three-day visit beginning with a welcome at the palace by the Grand Duke and Duchess.

Many Portuguese residents and indeed other nationalities, turned out to greet the president, who has held the role since March last year.

Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa has a busy schedule: he will be present in Luxembourg for two more days and will take part in the traditional Fatima pilgrimage in Wiltz.
