Lisbon’s Oceans Festival

Tonight at midnight marks the start of this year’s Oceans Festival.
So tonight Rua do Ouro downtown will be lit up in what look like Christmas lights during the day, but that in the darkness of night will have the effect of a planetarium.
Most of the events will take place by the waterfront districts of the city, and will include free visits to museums, hot air balloon rides, conferences, exhibitions, and music concerts.
You may check out the entire program at the official website

Fav Church and Fav Restaurant

Restaurant ‘Casa da Comida’ in Lisbon is an international well-known restaurant, very famous for its Portuguese gastronomy.

The new restaurant/cafetaria is located near one of Lisbon’s most interesting churches: Igreja São Roque (Church of Saint Roch), the earliest Jesuit church in the Portuguese world with its magnificent baroque interior and the Museum São Roque : Museum de Arte Sacra (Sacred Art), one of the oldest art museums in Portugal, housed in the former ‘Misericórdia’ old people’s home and orphanage. After (or before) your visit to the church and the Museum (€ 2,50), it’s a good idea to enjoy a coffee, a light lunch or an afternoon tea in this wonderful and quiet inner-garden.
