As with many tourists this seemed like a 'must do' venue. It was a beautiful evening and we were able to soak in the atmosphere and listen to a quartet of talented musicians. Our friend had just arrived from the airport and we decided to...More

Another place in Lisbon that faded with time and become nothing more than a tourist trap with. Ice history and patina appeal

"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
