CULT

GULBENKIAN MUSEUM

One of the most beautiful museums to be visited in Lisbon, with a large garden full of sculptures. It is worthwhile to visit the famous collection that belonged to Calouste Gulbenkian. Composed of approximately six thousand pieces of ancient art and modern. Very inspiring is René Lalique’s wonderful jewelry collection, René and Calouste Gulbenkian (1869-1955) shared the experience of an era marked by the fascinating transition of the so-called "Belle Époque" - with its particular spirit of the end of the century, present mainly in the remarkable collection of Art Nouveau works. They connected a friendship and mutual consideration, which is evident in the words of Collector: «My admiration for his unique work has not stopped growing, over the fifty years that our friendship has lasted of... I am proud to have, I believe, the largest number of his works... ». Pay attention to the work and details in your sculpted and glass pieces.

Another amazing thing is the restaurant, offering a good break for coffee, lunch or a simply good glass of red wine!

MARKETS

FEIRA DA LADRA

Lisbon's flea market is called "Feira da Ladra," often thought to mean "Thieves' Market" (in Portuguese, "ladra" is a woman thief) but it actually derives from "ladro," a bug or a flea found in antiques. I consider it as the best place to find treasures, from vintage furniture, old books, clothes to all kind of things. The whole upcycling idea started from objects I found in that fleamarket.

The market is held every Tuesday and Saturday.
where: Campo de Santa Clara, 1100-472 Lisboa
