The focus of this article is the dynamic and very visible Portuguese diaspora in Caracas, the result of steady migration between the mid-1940s and early-1980s. It highlights the crucial role of the extensive social networks created by Portuguese immigrants and draws on the now well-established notion of ‘transnational connectivity’ to examine the complex relationships the diaspora has forged simultaneously with receptor society and homeland. The aim is to enhance understanding of the particular characteristics of the diaspora, the notable changes it has undergone over the decades and the extraordinary contribution it has made to Venezuela’s economic and social development.
