- Have a coffee at FábricaLisboa
The Portuguese capital has great cafes, bakeries and confectionery scattered around every corner. It is difficult to choose one to indicate. However, taking into account the proposed theme, which combines the mood of romance with the light of Lisbon, we highlight one that is in our heart: FábricaLisboa.
Located in the historical center of the city, with easy access by the Baixa, next to the hill of the Castle of St. George, it has a footprint different from a good part of Lisbon’s offer.
Do not go thinking you will find cream cake and typical Portuguese convent candies. Although we are passionate about traditional confectionery, it is difficult not to melt down one of the croissants of this cafe and the decor, oh the decor! It’s like dating hidden in the living room or in the kitchen of a Portuguese grandma rs.Here the light of Lisbon enters timidly through the window and the door, completely transforming that rather rustic environment, with wooden furniture and details of the stone wall. On one side, a huge bookcase combines symbols typical of Portuguese culture and traditions; on the other, double tables share space with antique phones, books and other vintage objects.
- Sitting on the edge of the Tagus River in Ribeira das Naus
To close the selection of places that awaken hearts in the Portuguese capital, a true and deep love relationship: Lisbon and the Tagus River.
One of the best points to enjoy the late afternoon in Lisbon is along AvenidaRibeira das Naus, an area that connects Praça do Comércio to Cais do Sodré. This space was totally revitalized in 2014 and has become one of the darlings of the current Lisbon.
Imagine the scenery: a view of the 25 de Abril Bridge and Cristo Rei, seagulls dancing on the water, boats crossing the banks, cool afternoon breeze and soundtrack made by street musicians.
