"Conquistador" (Conqueror) was the Portuguese entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1989, performed in Portuguese by Da Vinci.

The song reminisces about the former Portuguese colonial possessions worldwide. Lead singer Tei Or takes the role of the Portuguese state and sings that she has been to Brazil, Praia, Bissau, Angola, Mozambique, Goa, Macau and "Timor" (the last a reference to East Timor).

The song was performed ninth on the night, following Norway's Britt Synnøve with "Venners nærhet" and preceding Sweden's Tommy Nilsson with "En dag". At the close of voting, it had received 39 points, placing 16th in a field of 22.

It was succeeded as Portuguese representative at the 1990 Contest by Nucha with Há Sempre Alguém.
