Publituris is Portugal's largest tourism publication and has a readership largely made up of tourism industry professionals, such as hoteliers and operators, alongside those working in agencies, tourist offices, golf courses and associated organisations. It offers its readers the latest updates about major regional events and investments, statistics, news on the latest partnerships, as well as information regarding new promotions, businesses and key destinations. Founded in 1968, this biweekly magazine has grown to offer the leaders of Portugal's booming tourism industry vital - and independent - economic information. It is therefore an honour for San Lorenzo to be recognized and admired by such a well-respected industry publication.

Voting will close on the 12th of September and winners of the Publituris Portugal Travel Awards 2016 will be announced during a glamorous awards ceremony on the 16th of September.
