August in Lisbon – Lisbon in the streets “Com’Out Lisbon”

It’s summer, temperatures are really high and Lisbon is the perfect spot for a Vacation (and Business!). But why take a “lazy” vacation (weather on the beach or just visiting a city) or simply commute from the hotel to the office on a business meeting visit when one can have access to the best a lively city has to offer?

For one month, August, the city is going to revive, again (on what is becoming an annual tradition) squares, gardens, belvederes, bandstands and neighborhoods to accommodate, and bring to the streets, the most diverse arts and entertainment events: cinema, music, visual arts. The agenda is still on its ultimatum, but we can promise jazz, movies in the streets (in addition to the continuous show about Lisbon in the Castle of St. Jorge – Castelo de S. Jorge ), plays, classic music.

Hotels.tv/lisbon interviews Milton Nascimento

In the spirit of the Lisbon Festivities (Festas de Lisboa) 2012, Hotels.tv/Lisbon interviewed Milton Nascimento at the Heritage Avenida Hotel’s library. Milton is playing tomorrow, June 30th, together with Carminho, Ana Moura and António Zambujo in an ensemble of Brazilian music and Fado.

 

Milton is coming to Lisbon ever since he first made his trip to Europe in the 70’s.  Even though he knows this city so well, he says that he still finds something new to see, enjoy or experience here, especially when it comes to food (he loves Portuguese restaurants and in particularly Pasteis de Belém (world famous, century old secret recipe of pastry from Belém).

For his vast knowledge of this city, Milton is now the chaperon of his musicians when they come to Lisbon and he gets the highest kick by taking strolls, interacting with the people and taking the train – along the sea – to Cascais or to Sintra, as well as one of the many trams (elevadores and eléctricos) that take you from downtown to one of the hills filled with history.

Yet, it is in a room with a view that he gets inspired for his songs while in Lisbon. This is the best treat he finds in any of the Hotels he has stayed in, and he already stayed twice at the Heritage Avenida Hotel (also because of its proximity to downtown, Coliseu dos Recreios concert hall and other Theater houses and high street shopping Avenue – one of the most luxurious in the world for the International Brand houses it represents).

On June 30th, Milton Nascimento will sing at the closing of the Lisbon Festivities (Festas de Lisboa), Ponta de Areia among other hits, at 22:00 at the Alameda D. Afonso Henriques.

Lisbon revived with the Football match UEFA Euro 2012

I am not a football (soccer) aficionado but when Portugal was qualified for the UEFA Euro 2012 quarter-final and Ronaldo’s spell was finally broken with 2 magical goals I felt an emotion hard to describe.

This is Portugal at its best and this is why I am so passionate about this country and, in particular, about Lisbon (Lisboa). It´s Fado* (latim Fatum = destiny). And it’s the enchantment of this colorful people. One can find nearly a bit of every piece of the world in this country: desert, mountain, city, sea, hot sunny weather and snow… you name it.

The food, and forgive me for being biased, is the best (fresh fish, olive oil, fruits and vegetables, all the best from a Mediterranean diet with the taste to cry for more).

The best football trainer: the special one Mourinho. The best soccer player, CR7… The 1998 Nobel prize literature was awarded to José Saramago… and the list is endless! No wonder that Lisbon and its surroundings (Cascais, Sintra, Estoril, Sesimbra, Eiriceira, Mafra, Fátima, Torres Vedras, just to mention a few) is so special and it’s a favorite for worldly renowned events such as Rock-in-Rio, Volvo Ocean Race, Harley-Davidson European H.O.G. Rally, Estoril Open, Estoril Jazz Festival.

Yet, to really experience this city one also has to look out for the local cultural and entertaining activities: the Lisbon festivities (“Festas de Lisboa”)! These are the highlight for the month of June, it celebrates the 7 hills where this city was built on. It celebrates St. Antonio, the patron saint of the city and the patron saint of weddings. It celebrates the food, mainly the sardine grilled eaten with salad or bread as well as caldo-verde (a delicious soup made of kale) and grilled chouriço (chorizo, in Spanish, although the recipe is different), at the sound of live popular bands, under the stars.

Come for golf, come for the beach, come for shopping, tourism or business, I’ll get you best place to stay to meet your preferences, the purpose of your trip and budget. Whether you need a venue for a product launch, a wedding, a sales force event, a tournament, a rock concert, a reunion, a conference or whatever you imagine or need, I am the local expert to find you the best, personalized (and if needed private) booking system and rates, for individuals and groups!
