The “Cinco Estrelas Regiões” Award seeks to enhance and present the best that each of the Portuguese regions have to offer in terms of gastronomy, natural resources, monuments and heritage, among several other categories, and regional businesses that stand out for their quality are also recognised.

The “Cinco Estrelas Regiões” Award is an evaluation system that measures the degree of satisfaction that products, services or brands provide to their users, having as evaluation criteria the five main variables that influence consumers in their purchase/consumption decisions.
