Interviews with Lisboetas

  • Fábrica da Pólvora: The Explosive New Art Scene in Oeiras - Who would have thought that eight stops from Lisbon’s Rossio station in Barcarena, there’s a city of artist studios that laughs in the face of the co-working space concept, a green space, a killer buffet-style restaurant, an outdoor amphitheater, and an archeological museum all in the same complex?
  • Pessoas of Lisbon: Fau Reis - "No Guild. No Club. No Order."
  • Rama em Flor: Creating Space for Radical Discussion - This summer, Lisbon was home to a glorious celebration of feminism and queer culture sprawled across multiple venues throughout the city, including Zé dos Bois Gallery, Damas, Lounge, and Rua das Gaivotas 6. The community festival brought together international and local artists and activists to present music, talks, films, and discussions, opening up space to […]

History and Customs

Today marks the 843rd anniversary of a very strange voyage involving two ravens and a corpse. By command of King Afonso Henriques, on January 22, 1173, a ship set out to make the 300­-km journey from the southernmost point of Portugal and carry the remains of Saint Vincent the Martyr — […]
  • Alcobaça: Badass Monks and Killer Confections - If you're looking to see what happens when you put monks in charge of education for over 700 years, you might want to pay a visit to Alcobaça, our neighbors 120km to the north. Those monks knew a thing or two about agriculture, shipping, and how to bake their arses off. Located in the district of […]
  • Cristiano Ronaldo: The Portuguese Captain - Most people are pretty familiar with the name Cristiano Ronaldo. However, it’s the world cup so we thought we would take a look at the Portuguese captain.
