» Fado: Old or new, the fado represents the Portuguese soul, it is the song of Lisboa, and in each word you uncover the history of a brave and daring nation, which ventured the oceans in search of new worlds. Go to a fado house and taste a typical caldo verde (kale soup) with chouriço and broa as you listen to a fado show in typical tradition and cultural environment. “A Severa – restaurante típico”, the “Adega Mesquita” or the “Forcado” are some of our suggestions.

» Handicrafts: The handmade crafts of the Lisbon region are varied, from rendas de bilros (bobbin lace), ponto cruz (cross stitch) embroidery, Caldas da Rainha ceramics, glass works from Marinha Grande and the typical Portuguese glazed tiles in blue and white colors. These products can be purchased in specialized shops or directly from the artisans.
