Lisbon Events Calendar

Logistics for planning things to do for an excellent day (or week, or month) in and around Lisbon, in English. ATTENTION: Most of the top museums in Lisbon have closed due to the attempt to contain the Coronavirus. There will likely be last-minute cancellations on events until mid-May and possibly beyond, so for now, it’s best to call and check if the event you fancy is still going on just in case.

MUSEUM | CCB Reopens to te Public | Belém | FREE-5€ @ CCB | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Museums. Remember those things? They used to be boring. Until you couldn’t visit them anymore. Then you started to miss them…
Well, guess what? Monday, May 18th happens to be International Museum Day. And, to celebrate (seeing that Portugal has been handling the global pandemic thing relatively well), many of Lisbon’s museums are cautiously opening some of its doors — provided that you don’t act like a dumbass.

One such museum is Centro Cultural de Belem (CCB). And here’s what they say:
“Garagem Sul CCB reopens on International Museum Day, with the exhibition O Mar É a Nossa Terra (“The Sea is Our Land”), with free entry. After that day, it is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 5 pm.
Now, all visitors can walk through the exhibition accompanied by an explanatory audio guide, accessible via your mobile phone (we recommend that you bring your headphones).
For the youngest, we designed an “actividário”, a set of challenges and puzzles that lead families to discover the secrets of the Portuguese coastline.
The attendance to the public at the Ticket Office is resumed, between 3 pm and 8 pm, although the rule of preference for information and return of tickets by non-face-to-face means remains, as a contention measure of contagion.

The Berardo Collection Museum reopens to the public, under the conditions defined by FAMC-CB.

#CCBCidadeDigital will continue to make digital content freely available, every week, on Wednesdays and Fridays.”

to Jan 3 | INTERACTIVE ART EXHIBIT | Meet Vincent Van Gogh | Belém | 9-15€ @ Terrreiro das Missas | Lisbon | Lisbon | Portugal

If you’ve been around Lisbon this year, you may have seen those big yellow triangular things with Vincent Van Gogh’s face on them all over town. If you ventured outside during the lockdown, you may even have seen one or two of these being used as unofficial housing for the homeless, which Vincent would have likely liked. Those things are advertisements for Meet Vincent Van Gogh, and the show seems to have survived the ‘rona.
Here’s what the organizers say:
“The world-famous Van Gogh Museum invites you to step into Vincent van Gogh’s world and get closer to the brilliant artist than ever before. From the Netherlands to Paris, let Vincent guide you on a magical and multisensory journey through the most important moments of his extraordinary life. Immerse yourself in the Van Gogh Museum’s official experience, on display for a limited time only in the cultural heart of Lisbon.

*Tickets that were purchased for the dates between March 13 and May 31 are still valid until November 30, without the need to previously exchange them.”

Tickets and more info here.

ENTRY: 9-15€ (with discounted packages available).

Jul 4 @ 11:00 – 18:00
to Jul 15 | HISTORICAL EXHIBITION | Belém: Demolition to Stage | Belém | 1,50-6€ @ Padrão dos Descobrimentos | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

80 years ago, Portugal celebrated 800 years of itself. As a result, the now highly popular tourist destination that is Belém underwent a few significant changes.

Here’s some more detailed history from the organizers of this historical exhibit:
“In 1940, the Portuguese World Exhibition and Belém seemed to be one. The vast dimension of the event took over the neighborhood. The Estado Novo announced admirable changes in those empty lands, available to host such a great party. But what was this place before 1940?

In addition to the uncultivated land, the neighborhood had a dense, varied and attractive urban core. People lived and traded on streets, lanes and streets consolidated over the centuries, growing in urbanity, since Infante D. Henrique had built a first church there, that of Santa Maria de Belém. This urban and popular nucleus complemented the erudite and noble character conferred by the surrounding farms and palaces – such as the Palácio da Praia (where today is the Centro Cultural de Belém), demolished only in 1962, or the Palácio de Belém, transformed into the official residence of the Presidency of the Republic, after 1910.

The preparation of the Portuguese World Exhibition involved a significant number of demolitions, which amputated the neighborhood in many of its valences: urban structure, housing, commercial spaces, places of sociability, market, and even heritage buildings.

Today, at the beginning of the 21st century, the Portuguese World Exhibition remains in place, in physical structures that we can see and touch, but above all in an incorporeal way.

‘BELÉM: DEMOLIR TO STAGE’ follows this path. It is an exhibition curated by Pedro Rito Nobre that will take us on a journey through the memories that still exist in this place, and others that have been erased. ‘With this exhibition, I hope that the public (in general, and especially those who know Belém today, including the residents) will gain a sense of how Belém has evolved and transformed over time. We get used to places as we know them and sometimes we do not question what was there before, or the reasons why they were transformed. Many of the spaces that we cross today are direct heirs of the Portuguese World Exhibition and some almost surprising or misfit elements are, after all, remains of that event.'”

ENTRY: 1,50-6€.

to Aug 8 | MULTIMEDIA EXHIBIT | Sound Studies: The Final Report | São Bento | FREE @ Zaratan | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

‘Sound Studies: The Final Report’ is a two-month, two-part multimedia show that brings together 15 art students and is described by its organizers as a “bipartite multimedia event in the context of the fifth edition of the Post-Graduation in Sound Art at the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Lisbon.” The organizers add that it “intends to publicly expose various artistic explorations that use sound as material to be problematized, debating on its physical, material, conceptual, and ontological properties – interconnecting it with multiple dimensions, some artistic, others cultural, social, and political.”
Sounds pretty sound to us.

to July 31st | GUIDED MUSEUM VISITS | Terapêuticas Bordalianas | Campo Grande | FREE @ Museu Bordalo Pinheiro | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro is a household name in Portugal. He was a man of many talents and, even though he died 115 years ago, his work and influence on the country remain ever-present. One example of said influence is Zé Povinho, the vaguely familiar fat little dude on the left.

This summer, the museum bearing Bordalo’s name wants to help you fight those pandemic blues, free of charge, with what they’re calling Terapêuticas Bordalianas.

Here’s what they say:
“The Therapeutic Bordalianas are free half-hour-long visits to the Museum Bordalo Pinheiro designed to introduce visitors to the Bordaliano world.
We choose one piece or theme per day, between Tuesday and Friday, always at 15h, and then we invite the visitor to explore the Museum freely.

Themes and pieces:
Tuesdays – Arab perfumer and the tile
Wednesdays – Manueline carving and popular culture
Thursdays – Mesa-Posta plate and naturalism
Fridays – Zé Povinho: identity and politics

But attention!
It can manifest the following side effects: irony, sense of humor, sarcasm, freedom of thought, social and political criticism.
If symptoms persist, contact us, we have more activities for you!”

FREE with prior registration.

Registration (and more info) via [email protected].

*Limited to five people per tour.

to Jul 15 | HISTORICAL EXHIBITION | Belém: Demolition to Stage | Belém | 1,50-6€ @ Padrão dos Descobrimentos | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

80 years ago, Portugal celebrated 800 years of itself. As a result, the now highly popular tourist destination that is Belém underwent a few significant changes.

Here’s some more detailed history from the organizers of this historical exhibit:
“In 1940, the Portuguese World Exhibition and Belém seemed to be one. The vast dimension of the event took over the neighborhood. The Estado Novo announced admirable changes in those empty lands, available to host such a great party. But what was this place before 1940?

In addition to the uncultivated land, the neighborhood had a dense, varied and attractive urban core. People lived and traded on streets, lanes and streets consolidated over the centuries, growing in urbanity, since Infante D. Henrique had built a first church there, that of Santa Maria de Belém. This urban and popular nucleus complemented the erudite and noble character conferred by the surrounding farms and palaces – such as the Palácio da Praia (where today is the Centro Cultural de Belém), demolished only in 1962, or the Palácio de Belém, transformed into the official residence of the Presidency of the Republic, after 1910.

The preparation of the Portuguese World Exhibition involved a significant number of demolitions, which amputated the neighborhood in many of its valences: urban structure, housing, commercial spaces, places of sociability, market, and even heritage buildings.

Today, at the beginning of the 21st century, the Portuguese World Exhibition remains in place, in physical structures that we can see and touch, but above all in an incorporeal way.

‘BELÉM: DEMOLIR TO STAGE’ follows this path. It is an exhibition curated by Pedro Rito Nobre that will take us on a journey through the memories that still exist in this place, and others that have been erased. ‘With this exhibition, I hope that the public (in general, and especially those who know Belém today, including the residents) will gain a sense of how Belém has evolved and transformed over time. We get used to places as we know them and sometimes we do not question what was there before, or the reasons why they were transformed. Many of the spaces that we cross today are direct heirs of the Portuguese World Exhibition and some almost surprising or misfit elements are, after all, remains of that event.'”

ENTRY: 1,50-6€.

to July 31st | GUIDED MUSEUM VISITS | Terapêuticas Bordalianas | Campo Grande | FREE @ Museu Bordalo Pinheiro | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro is a household name in Portugal. He was a man of many talents and, even though he died 115 years ago, his work and influence on the country remain ever-present. One example of said influence is Zé Povinho, the vaguely familiar fat little dude on the left.

This summer, the museum bearing Bordalo’s name wants to help you fight those pandemic blues, free of charge, with what they’re calling Terapêuticas Bordalianas.

Here’s what they say:
“The Therapeutic Bordalianas are free half-hour-long visits to the Museum Bordalo Pinheiro designed to introduce visitors to the Bordaliano world.
We choose one piece or theme per day, between Tuesday and Friday, always at 15h, and then we invite the visitor to explore the Museum freely.

Themes and pieces:
Tuesdays – Arab perfumer and the tile
Wednesdays – Manueline carving and popular culture
Thursdays – Mesa-Posta plate and naturalism
Fridays – Zé Povinho: identity and politics

But attention!
It can manifest the following side effects: irony, sense of humor, sarcasm, freedom of thought, social and political criticism.
If symptoms persist, contact us, we have more activities for you!”

FREE with prior registration.

Sounds pretty sound to us.

Museums. Remember those things? They used to be boring. Until you couldn’t visit them anymore. Then you started to miss them…
Well, guess what? Monday, May 18th happens to be International Museum Day. And, to celebrate (seeing that Portugal has been handling the global pandemic thing relatively well), many of Lisbon’s museums are cautiously opening some of its doors — provided that you don’t act like a dumbass.

One such museum is Centro Cultural de Belem (CCB). And here’s what they say:
“Garagem Sul CCB reopens on International Museum Day, with the exhibition O Mar É a Nossa Terra (“The Sea is Our Land”), with free entry. After that day, it is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 5 pm.
Now, all visitors can walk through the exhibition accompanied by an explanatory audio guide, accessible via your mobile phone (we recommend that you bring your headphones).
For the youngest, we designed an “actividário”, a set of challenges and puzzles that lead families to discover the secrets of the Portuguese coastline.
The attendance to the public at the Ticket Office is resumed, between 3 pm and 8 pm, although the rule of preference for information and return of tickets by non-face-to-face means remains, as a contention measure of contagion.

The Berardo Collection Museum reopens to the public, under the conditions defined by FAMC-CB.

#CCBCidadeDigital will continue to make digital content freely available, every week, on Wednesdays and Fridays.”

If you’ve been around Lisbon this year, you may have seen those big yellow triangular things with Vincent Van Gogh’s face on them all over town. If you ventured outside during the lockdown, you may even have seen one or two of these being used as unofficial housing for the homeless, which Vincent would have likely liked. Those things are advertisements for Meet Vincent Van Gogh, and the show seems to have survived the ‘rona.
Here’s what the organizers say:
“The world-famous Van Gogh Museum invites you to step into Vincent van Gogh’s world and get closer to the brilliant artist than ever before. From the Netherlands to Paris, let Vincent guide you on a magical and multisensory journey through the most important moments of his extraordinary life. Immerse yourself in the Van Gogh Museum’s official experience, on display for a limited time only in the cultural heart of Lisbon.

*Tickets that were purchased for the dates between March 13 and May 31 are still valid until November 30, without the need to previously exchange them.”

to Jul 15 | HISTORICAL EXHIBITION | Belém: Demolition to Stage | Belém | 1,50-6€ @ Padrão dos Descobrimentos | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

80 years ago, Portugal celebrated 800 years of itself. As a result, the now highly popular tourist destination that is Belém underwent a few significant changes.

Here’s some more detailed history from the organizers of this historical exhibit:
“In 1940, the Portuguese World Exhibition and Belém seemed to be one. The vast dimension of the event took over the neighborhood. The Estado Novo announced admirable changes in those empty lands, available to host such a great party. But what was this place before 1940?

In addition to the uncultivated land, the neighborhood had a dense, varied and attractive urban core. People lived and traded on streets, lanes and streets consolidated over the centuries, growing in urbanity, since Infante D. Henrique had built a first church there, that of Santa Maria de Belém. This urban and popular nucleus complemented the erudite and noble character conferred by the surrounding farms and palaces – such as the Palácio da Praia (where today is the Centro Cultural de Belém), demolished only in 1962, or the Palácio de Belém, transformed into the official residence of the Presidency of the Republic, after 1910.

The preparation of the Portuguese World Exhibition involved a significant number of demolitions, which amputated the neighborhood in many of its valences: urban structure, housing, commercial spaces, places of sociability, market, and even heritage buildings.

Today, at the beginning of the 21st century, the Portuguese World Exhibition remains in place, in physical structures that we can see and touch, but above all in an incorporeal way.

‘BELÉM: DEMOLIR TO STAGE’ follows this path. It is an exhibition curated by Pedro Rito Nobre that will take us on a journey through the memories that still exist in this place, and others that have been erased. ‘With this exhibition, I hope that the public (in general, and especially those who know Belém today, including the residents) will gain a sense of how Belém has evolved and transformed over time. We get used to places as we know them and sometimes we do not question what was there before, or the reasons why they were transformed. Many of the spaces that we cross today are direct heirs of the Portuguese World Exhibition and some almost surprising or misfit elements are, after all, remains of that event.'”

ENTRY: 1,50-6€.

to July 31st | GUIDED MUSEUM VISITS | Terapêuticas Bordalianas | Campo Grande | FREE @ Museu Bordalo Pinheiro | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro is a household name in Portugal. He was a man of many talents and, even though he died 115 years ago, his work and influence on the country remain ever-present. One example of said influence is Zé Povinho, the vaguely familiar fat little dude on the left.

This summer, the museum bearing Bordalo’s name wants to help you fight those pandemic blues, free of charge, with what they’re calling Terapêuticas Bordalianas.

Here’s what they say:
“The Therapeutic Bordalianas are free half-hour-long visits to the Museum Bordalo Pinheiro designed to introduce visitors to the Bordaliano world.
We choose one piece or theme per day, between Tuesday and Friday, always at 15h, and then we invite the visitor to explore the Museum freely.

Themes and pieces:
Tuesdays – Arab perfumer and the tile
Wednesdays – Manueline carving and popular culture
Thursdays – Mesa-Posta plate and naturalism
Fridays – Zé Povinho: identity and politics

But attention!
It can manifest the following side effects: irony, sense of humor, sarcasm, freedom of thought, social and political criticism.
If symptoms persist, contact us, we have more activities for you!”

FREE with prior registration.

Registration (and more info) via [email protected].

*Limited to five people per tour.

MUSEUM | CCB Reopens to te Public | Belém | FREE-5€ @ CCB | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Museums. Remember those things? They used to be boring. Until you couldn’t visit them anymore. Then you started to miss them…
Well, guess what? Monday, May 18th happens to be International Museum Day. And, to celebrate (seeing that Portugal has been handling the global pandemic thing relatively well), many of Lisbon’s museums are cautiously opening some of its doors — provided that you don’t act like a dumbass.

One such museum is Centro Cultural de Belem (CCB). And here’s what they say:
“Garagem Sul CCB reopens on International Museum Day, with the exhibition O Mar É a Nossa Terra (“The Sea is Our Land”), with free entry. After that day, it is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 5 pm.

to Jan 3 | INTERACTIVE ART EXHIBIT | Meet Vincent Van Gogh | Belém | 9-15€ @ Terrreiro das Missas | Lisbon | Lisbon | Portugal

If you’ve been around Lisbon this year, you may have seen those big yellow triangular things with Vincent Van Gogh’s face on them all over town. If you ventured outside during the lockdown, you may even have seen one or two of these being used as unofficial housing for the homeless, which Vincent would have likely liked. Those things are advertisements for Meet Vincent Van Gogh, and the show seems to have survived the ‘rona.
Here’s what the organizers say:
“The world-famous Van Gogh Museum invites you to step into Vincent van Gogh’s world and get closer to the brilliant artist than ever before. From the Netherlands to Paris, let Vincent guide you on a magical and multisensory journey through the most important moments of his extraordinary life. Immerse yourself in the Van Gogh Museum’s official experience, on display for a limited time only in the cultural heart of Lisbon.

*Tickets that were purchased for the dates between March 13 and May 31 are still valid until November 30, without the need to previously exchange them.”

Tickets and more info here.

ENTRY: 9-15€ (with discounted packages available).
