to Aug 11 | ART EXHIBIT | Albrecht Dürer: St. Jerome Drawings from the Albertina Museum  | Santos | 6 - 10€ @ Museu Nacional de Atre Antiga | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Albrecht Dürer was a German painter mostly working around 500 years ago. He made many paintings which, in turn, made history in the world of art.

One such painting is Saint Jerome in His Study.
Albrecht completed said piece in 1521. Then, while on a trip to Antwerp, he gave it to the secretary of a Portuguese factory as a gift. And so today, St Jerome hangs in the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga right here in Lisbon, continuing to make history.

However, Albrecht had also made four preliminary drawings for St Jerome, which somehow ended up in the Albertina Museum in Vienna.
That is, until recently.

For the next two months, said drawings are in Portugal for the first time, face to face with the iconic final work for which they served as inspiration.
Thus, you are invited to witness art history in the making, as well as to an up-close and personal study of Albrecht’s creative process.

ENTRY: 6-10€.

Jun 25 @ 10:00 – 17:00
to Dec 31 | EXHIBIT | "Among Dinosaurs" | Príncipe Real | 5€ @ Museu de Historia Natural e da Ciência | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

As you probably already know, dinosaurs once roamed the Earth— but did you know that they roamed around Portugal? The Museum of Natural History is taking an intensive look at different types of dinosaur fossils and inviting you to get to know the regions of Portugal where they are most abundant. Learn about excavation work, laboratory preparation, and identification of the Allosaurus fossils found in Andrés (Pombal) and maybe you’ll get a better idea about just what was going on at this time 150 million years ago, and what dinosaurs have survived until today.

Note: Weekend hours are from 11h to 18h

From the organizers:

Allosaurus: in what regions of the planet were they discovered? What characteristics did these Dinosaurs have? The answer to this question leads to the reflection about the diets of the dinosaurs, their life habits, and the adaptations necessary for their survival. Since Allosaurus is a theropod, we can not forget that some dinosaurs of this group evolved acquiring avian characteristics. We are therefore led to the conclusion that not all of the dinosaurs were extinct 66 million years ago.

to Sept 29 | PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT | The Portuguese Prison Photo Project | Alfama | 3€ @ Museu do Ajube | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

If you’ve never seen the inside of a prison, then chances are you’re not in the U.S., let alone doing better than a lot of the planet.
Museu do Ajube aims to change that — but, don’t worry, not permanently, and for a mere three bucks.
Here’s their verdict:
“The Portuguese Prison Photo Project provides an insight into seven contemporary Portuguese prisons. From the largest and oldest, dating back to the 1880s, to the newest, opened in 2004.
The images, captured by two photographers — Portuguese Luís Barbosa and Swiss Peter M. Schulthess — show different approaches and perspectives, and are complemented by historical images from the national archives.”

Tired of the increasing crowdedness of the city and feel like you need a drink? Then kill two birds with one stone by taking a trip down to Alentejo to learn about (and taste) one of the best things about Portugal — the wine!
More specifically, Talha Wine, in a century old winery and museum perfected by generations of the Honrado family.
Here’s what Cella Vinaria Antigua (“Old Wine Cellar”) tell us:
“At Cella Vinaria Antiqua, the goal is to develop an ecotourism project in a century-old building with a history associated with generations and generations of winemakers and innkeepers, based on the characteristics of the primitive construction, which are important to know in order to understand all the spirit implicit in the art of creating Vinho de Talha.”

ALL YEAR | GUIDED TOUR | Alfama and Mouraria Free Walking Tour | Rossio | FREE
Jun 29 @ 10:30 – 13:30
ALL YEAR | GUIDED TOUR | Alfama and Mouraria Free Walking Tour | Rossio | FREE @ VARIOUS LOCATIONS

The best way to experience history is to live it. That’s why our friends at Live History offer you an immersive three-hour glimpse into two of the most historical, oldest, and most alive neighborhoods in Lisbon: Mouraria and Alfama.
Free of charge.

The guides are enthusiastic, charming polyglots. They’re funny, welcome and respond thoughtfully to questions, intimidatingly knowledgeable, easy to follow (both on foot and in thought), and truly seem to care.
Also, their only pay is the love of their city and your tip at the end. Remember, these are locals and, despite what AirBnB might believe, need to live here too. So tip well if you feel you’ve lived some history!

What to know:
-You can pre-book a spot on our Marketplace. Or if you’re reading this the morning of, you could try to meet them at 10h30 by the statue at the center of Praça Dom Pedro IV, also known as Rossio square.
-The guides wear white Live History t-shirts, have white umbrellas, and are dressed up as Portuguese crusaders and navigators if you’re lucky.
-Available languages: English / Spanish (languages on demand: Portuguese / French / Czech / Slovak).
-These are free walking tours. Donations welcome at the end.
-Comfortable shoes and a water bottle are advisable.

Contact them if you need more info, or “if you feel the need for your own private tailor-made tour.”

And read Atlas‘ in-depth interview with Live History co-founder Jofre Correia here.

P.S.: If you’re worried about three hours up and down the eight (ask your guide) hills of Lisbon, we know for a fact that last August, in the sweltering heat, an American woman did the whole tour, effortlessly, with a smile on her face… a mere five days before giving birth.

Tired of the increasing crowdedness of the city and feel like you need a drink? Then kill two birds with one stone by taking a trip down to Alentejo to learn about (and taste) one of the best things about Portugal — the wine!

Here’s what Cella Vinaria Antigua (“Old Wine Cellar”) tell us:
“At Cella Vinaria Antiqua, the goal is to develop an ecotourism project in a century-old building with a history associated with generations and generations of winemakers and innkeepers, based on the characteristics of the primitive construction, which are important to know in order to understand all the spirit implicit in the art of creating Vinho de Talha.”

to Aug 11 | ART EXHIBIT | Albrecht Dürer: St. Jerome Drawings from the Albertina Museum  | Santos | 6 - 10€ @ Museu Nacional de Atre Antiga | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Albrecht Dürer was a German painter mostly working around 500 years ago. He made many paintings which, in turn, made history in the world of art.

One such painting is Saint Jerome in His Study.
Albrecht completed said piece in 1521. Then, while on a trip to Antwerp, he gave it to the secretary of a Portuguese factory as a gift. And so today, St Jerome hangs in the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga right here in Lisbon, continuing to make history.

However, Albrecht had also made four preliminary drawings for St Jerome, which somehow ended up in the Albertina Museum in Vienna.
That is, until recently.

For the next two months, said drawings are in Portugal for the first time, face to face with the iconic final work for which they served as inspiration.
Thus, you are invited to witness art history in the making, as well as to an up-close and personal study of Albrecht’s creative process.

ENTRY: 6-10€.

to Dec 31 | EXHIBIT | "Among Dinosaurs" | Príncipe Real | 5€ @ Museu de Historia Natural e da Ciência | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

As you probably already know, dinosaurs once roamed the Earth— but did you know that they roamed around Portugal? The Museum of Natural History is taking an intensive look at different types of dinosaur fossils and inviting you to get to know the regions of Portugal where they are most abundant. Learn about excavation work, laboratory preparation, and identification of the Allosaurus fossils found in Andrés (Pombal) and maybe you’ll get a better idea about just what was going on at this time 150 million years ago, and what dinosaurs have survived until today.

Note: Weekend hours are from 11h to 18h

From the organizers:

Allosaurus: in what regions of the planet were they discovered? What characteristics did these Dinosaurs have? The answer to this question leads to the reflection about the diets of the dinosaurs, their life habits, and the adaptations necessary for their survival. Since Allosaurus is a theropod, we can not forget that some dinosaurs of this group evolved acquiring avian characteristics. We are therefore led to the conclusion that not all of the dinosaurs were extinct 66 million years ago.

to Sept 29 | PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT | The Portuguese Prison Photo Project | Alfama | 3€ @ Museu do Ajube | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

If you’ve never seen the inside of a prison, then chances are you’re not in the U.S., let alone doing better than a lot of the planet.
Museu do Ajube aims to change that — but, don’t worry, not permanently, and for a mere three bucks.
Here’s their verdict:
“The Portuguese Prison Photo Project provides an insight into seven contemporary Portuguese prisons. From the largest and oldest, dating back to the 1880s, to the newest, opened in 2004.
The images, captured by two photographers — Portuguese Luís Barbosa and Swiss Peter M. Schulthess — show different approaches and perspectives, and are complemented by historical images from the national archives.”
