So you missed St. António, the patron of Lisbon and Weddings, as well as the parade on June 12th… don’t worry, you can still enjoy Festas de Lisboa (Lisbon festivities) with this special for the weekend of June 29th to July 1st.
We propose that you visit the city, stroll around Lisbon’s most characteristic neighborhoods, eat fresh sardines under the stars at the sound of local popular music and still dive in the ocean, on a 30 minutes train ride from the city to chill from this fantastic summer weather. In the meantime don’t miss:
18:00 Jazz, in the tram, “Ascensor da Bica”
Jigging hick (“Bailarico Saloio”), on the streets 19:00-20:30 at Escadinha da Bica Grande (after taking the tram, “Ascensor da Bica,” up)
Have dinner under the stars and go for Caldo Verde, Sardines and Chouriço grilled
Catch some theatre at the local, traditional shops, 11:30/ 12:00/12:30, where actors & actresses, dressed for the part, sell like old times at some of the most characteristic shops: Hospital das Bonecas, Manteigaria Silva, Tricots Brancal, Drogaria e perfumaria S. Pereira Leão
At 16:00 take the Omnibus 36, Cais do Sodré – Campo Grande. There young artists will transform your image. They are Confraria do Imaginário. They feverish admires of Da Vinci, Wells, Einstein and Orwell, among others, and they will call for your imagination revealing curiosities and playing games.
At 21:30, join the Aqueduto de Vozes Livres and go for a walk, between Jardim de S. Pedro de Alcântara and Reservatório da Patriacal, in this historic underground tunnel that crosses Lisbon and carries water, to find out the harmony of voices along this magical (almost temple like) location that resists to time.
22:00 the closing of the festivities with a live concert, celebrating the popular Brazilian music and Fado (Património Cultural Imaterial da Humanidade, Nov 2011, UNESCO = Immaterial Humanity Cultural Heritage) with Milton Nascimento, Carminho, Ana Moura and António Zambujo with the Orquestra Metropolitana de Lisboa (Lisbon Metropolitan Orchestra).
Go to the beach, taking the train that rides just by the water, to Praia de Carcavelos
On the way back stop at Belém, visit the monuments and museums, but don’t leave before getting one of the most famous pastries in the world, Pastéis de Belém, from the Pastéis de Belém café. My suggestion: get it and eat it in there, while hot, instead of standing in like to take them to go.
take the tram, nr 28, and visit the old part of town, go to the Castelo de S. Jorge (St. Jorge Castle), purchase your ticket to see the history of Lisbon projected on the walls of this majestic castle
