The Beauty of Portugal
Some people refer to Portugal as the ‘foster kid of Europe’, not necessarily for its southwestern location in the continent, but mostly for its comfortable Mediterranean climate throughout the year and the warmth of its people. My first visit to Portugal was a 48-hour stop in Lisbon and I fell in love with the city. A year later I visited Porto and just recently I discovered central Portugal and Alentejo. Enjoy!

Café A Brasileira

Large arrow left

This might be one of the most famous cafes in Lisbon, located in Chiado area of downtown Lisbon.
The cafe was opened in 1905 to sell original Brazilian coffee, and kept its original interior and exterior.
Today it is one of the most popular and touristic cafes in Lisbon and is a great touristic attraction.

On a different note, a bronze statue of Fernando Pessoa, by sculptor Lagoa Henriques, was eventually placed outside the café in 1988, although the writer has preferred a different coffee place across the street.
