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 re-opened with new hours and regulations. There will likely be last-minute cancellations on events so for now, it’s best to call and check if the event you fancy is still going on — just in case.

As the city copes with the new normal, its residents are slowly making its way back to the streets. The annual arts and culture festival that is Lisboa na Rua says this about their part in keeping culture in Lisbon alive in 2020:
“In a year when our limits have been challenged on a daily basis, at Lisboa na Rua we aim to reflect about the world and how we take part in it, while once again feeding the spirit with sounds and stories through a programme that brings together music, theatre, cinema, conversation, and dance. Despite all constraints, we made a point of bringing culture back to the streets, while complying with recommended safety measures in order to safeguard public health. So, this year, there are no big stages or shows for thousands of people, but that doesn’t mean the schedule is any less engrossing. And even in the open air, the entire Lisboa na Rua program will take place in locations with limited capacity, social distancing, masks, and regular cleaning.”

Magic shows, sound art, Amália Rodrigues’ 100th birthday, dancing in the streets and Lisbon’s gardens, concerts, plays, and all sorts of free outdoor fun for all ages.

Sep 20 @ 10:00 – 20:00
to Sept 20 | FESTIVAL | TODOS 2020: Passengers of the World | Santa Engrácia | FREE-TBD @ Santa Engrácia | Lisbon | Lisbon | Portugal

“My fate cannot be mastered; it can only be collaborated with and thereby, to some extent, directed. Nor am I the captain of my soul; I am only its noisiest passenger.”
Aldous Huxley.

We’re all just passengers, really. And if your current stop happens to be Lisbon, then Festival TODOS 2020 has a few neat surprises for you along the way.

From the organizers:
“The festival that promotes and celebrates interculturality in the city of Lisbon – TODOS: Caminhada de Culturas – is back for its 12th edition. From 17 to 20 of September 2020, the neighborhood of Santa Engrácia, next to the Santa Apolónia train station, hosts shows and socio-cultural events that, each in its own way, develop the interaction between Passengers of the World, living and working in the Portuguese capital. An opportunity, also, to get to know better the places of this territory and what is not usually visible to our daily gaze, from the corners to reveal the stories and the community that lives in it.

2020 marks the year when we have to approach without touching. In this year in which digital must also be a space for meeting and sharing, our programming extends to the digital world through #TODOSemlinha.

With our eyes on a sky without borders, we move forward. In-person or digitally, join our journey through a Lisbon more inclusive, cosmopolitan, and open to the Other. Open to TODOS.”

to Nov 1 | HISTORICAL EXHIBIT | Military Order of the Tower and Sword: 80 years of the Great-Necklace | Belém | 2,5€ @ Museu da Presidência da República | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

From Wikipedia:
“The Military Order of the Tower and of the Sword, of Valour, Loyalty and Merit (‘Ordem Militar da Torre e Espada do Valor, Lealdade e Mérito,’ in Portuguese)) is a Portuguese order of knighthood and the pinnacle of the Portuguese honors system. The order was originally created by King Afonso V of Portugal in 1459, under the name of the Order of the Sword, inspired by the legend that Arab rule in Africa would end when a Christian prince would besiege the fortress at Fez. Knighthood in the Order of the Sword was given as a reward to those who participated in the conquests and battles in Africa.”

New things every day…

From Museu da Presidência da República, the organizers of this historical exhibit:
“A show that presents the history of the Military Order of the Tower and Sword, of Valor, Loyalty, and Merit, and of its highest degree, instituted in 1939, to be granted only to heads of State with exceptional contributions in the military field. It follows the evolution of the order and the 1962 amendment, which defines that merit is no longer exclusive to military deeds, and institutes the attribution of the Grande-Colar (“the Great Necklace”), at the end of the mandate, to the Presidents of the Republic.”

Museum Hours:
Tue-Sun, 10h-13h / 14h-18h.
Show up until November 1st.

ENTRY: 2,5€.

to Sept 30 | HISTORICAL EXHIBIT | Bernardo Santareno: Portuguese, Writer, Resistant, 100 years | Alfama | 3€ @ Museu do Aljube Resistência e Liberdade | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

“Meeting someone with yourself is never cheap.”
Bernardo Santareno, The Jew.

August 20 (or August 29th, or August 30th, depending on who you ask), 2020 marks 50 years since the death of the enigmatic Bernardo Santareno, aka António Martinho do Rosário, the cool-looking dude on the left.

Born a century ago, at age 37 Bernardo was working as an onboard physician for the Portuguese cod-fishing fleet. Then he decided to start writing poetry and plays celebrating freedom, human dignity, and love, thereby often criticizing Portugal’s dictatorship and causing much of his work to be banned by said dictatorship.

This summer, as part of their Artists of Resistance series, Museu do Aljube Resistência e Liberdade invites you to meet the man on the left in a bibliographical exhibition that, in their words, “brings together some of the most important moments in the life and work of Bernardo Santareno.” And it’s not that expensive.

Museum hours:
Tue-Sun, 11h-17h.
Show up until Sept 30.

ENTRY: 3€.

NOTE: This event is not on the museum’s main page (probably due to COVID), but it is on Facebook, so don’t kill the messenger.

“Meeting someone with yourself is never cheap.”
Bernardo Santareno, The Jew.

August 20 (or August 29th, or August 30th, depending on who you ask), 2020 marks 50 years since the death of the enigmatic Bernardo Santareno, aka António Martinho do Rosário, the cool-looking dude on the left.

Born a century ago, at age 37 Bernardo was working as an onboard physician for the Portuguese cod-fishing fleet. Then he decided to start writing poetry and plays celebrating freedom, human dignity, and love, thereby often criticizing Portugal’s dictatorship and causing much of his work to be banned by said dictatorship.

This summer, as part of their Artists of Resistance series, Museu do Aljube Resistência e Liberdade invites you to meet the man on the left in a bibliographical exhibition that, in their words, “brings together some of the most important moments in the life and work of Bernardo Santareno.” And it’s not that expensive.

Museum hours:
Tue-Sun, 11h-17h.
Show up until Sept 30.

ENTRY: 3€.

NOTE: This event is not on the museum’s main page (probably due to COVID), but it is on Facebook, so don’t kill the messenger.

to Sept 27 | FESTIVAL | Lisboa na Rua 2020: Com'Out Lisbon | Lisbon | FREE @ VARIOUS LOCATIONS

As the city copes with the new normal, its residents are slowly making its way back to the streets. The annual arts and culture festival that is Lisboa na Rua says this about their part in keeping culture in Lisbon alive in 2020:
“In a year when our limits have been challenged on a daily basis, at Lisboa na Rua we aim to reflect about the world and how we take part in it, while once again feeding the spirit with sounds and stories through a programme that brings together music, theatre, cinema, conversation, and dance. Despite all constraints, we made a point of bringing culture back to the streets, while complying with recommended safety measures in order to safeguard public health. So, this year, there are no big stages or shows for thousands of people, but that doesn’t mean the schedule is any less engrossing. And even in the open air, the entire Lisboa na Rua program will take place in locations with limited capacity, social distancing, masks, and regular cleaning.”

Magic shows, sound art, Amália Rodrigues’ 100th birthday, dancing in the streets and Lisbon’s gardens, concerts, plays, and all sorts of free outdoor fun for all ages.

From Wikipedia:
“The Military Order of the Tower and of the Sword, of Valour, Loyalty and Merit (‘Ordem Militar da Torre e Espada do Valor, Lealdade e Mérito,’ in Portuguese)) is a Portuguese order of knighthood and the pinnacle of the Portuguese honors system. The order was originally created by King Afonso V of Portugal in 1459, under the name of the Order of the Sword, inspired by the legend that Arab rule in Africa would end when a Christian prince would besiege the fortress at Fez. Knighthood in the Order of the Sword was given as a reward to those who participated in the conquests and battles in Africa.”
