Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.

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.”

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.

to Sept 30 | OPEN-AIR FILM CYCLE | Spaces that have no place | Alfama | FREE @ Casa da Chada | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Mário Dionísio was a Lisbon-born, -bred, and -buried painter, writer, professor, and critic from the last century. He had a big influence on the arts here.

About a decade ago, a bunch of his family members and random art geeks decided to open a cultural space in his honor, and that’s how Casa Da Achada was born. Part library, part museum, part documentation center, the space aims to preserve the city’s cultural heritage.

And now — every Monday through September at 21h30, to be exact — Casa Da Achada presents Espaços que não têm lugar (“Spaces that have no place”) — a series of films described by the organizers like this:

“If the whole world is made up of change, the spaces we go through, which are part of our daily lives, are no exception. They change with the uses that we give them, with the collective occupation or the abandonment of the day-to-day, and they change due to the economic interests of those who command and want to make the space profitable, empty, or full of life.

With this cycle of cinema, we want to question the concepts of space and place, through films with different perspectives. We want to think of spaces that no longer have a place like a grocery store swallowed by a skyscraper or a hole dug in the center of Paris to make room for a huge subway station.
They are spaces that can be imaginary or real, under construction or in continuous deconstruction, that have lost their place in our cities, neighborhoods, and also in our lives. In the cinema, however, the spaces that have no place go live in another way, in new ways, and remain in our memory.”

With spacey classics like Being John Malkovich to the Edge of the World, free of charge, you can make some space in your schedule for this one.

See the full program of films, with showtimes, here.

Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.

Monthly | WINE AND LIVE MUSIC | Bacchus Hour at Teatro Romano | Alfama | FREE @ Museu de Lisboa – Teatro Romano | Lisboa | Portugal

“Prepare yourselves
for the roaring voice of the God of Joy!”
Euripides, The Bacchae.

Bacchus, aka Dionysus, as you may have heard, is kind of a party dude. He woulda liked Lisbon… And it’s likely that one of his favorite places to indulge would be Museu Lisboa: Teatro Romano .
So to honor the coolest of our heavenly Roman friends, the museum invites you to chill like a god and enjoy an evening of live music, amid some ancient ruins, god nectar in hand and river in view, for their version of Happy Hour.
That’s right, you guessed it: Bacchus Hour.

Every last Thursday evening of each month.

FREE ENTRY.

Saude indeed!
