As you get off the ferry, it takes about 15 minutes to walk along the river (Cais do Ginjal) to reach the elevator, after passing lots of ruinous warehouses (could be a place for a movie set…!), and a few restaurants, both worth a visit 🙂 : Atire-te ao Rio and Ponto Final.

Sculpture poet Fernando Pessoa Lisbon & Dutch admirer Hans
‘The best way to travel is to feel’Pessoa wrote, ‘so feel everything in every possible way.’ Pessoa was born in Lisbon in 1888.
Apart from his high school years which he spent with his mother and half brothers in South Africa, he lived in Lisbon without a break, without taking public holidays, without traveling abroad. He did so with the help of heteronyms, inventing many lives (and cities) out of his own, spent between the Chiado area, where he lived.
Quality Restaurant Martinho da Arcade, Lisbon.
Restaurant Martinho da Arcade Lisbon & Pessoa’s table
Portugal’s famous poet and writer Pessoa spent a lot of his time in cafes (like Cafe Martinho da Arcada, where he wrote and drank a lot . He died in 1935, aged 47.
“Acordar”, poem by Álvaro de Campos, one of Fernando Pessoa’s various ‘heteronyms’ (imaginary characters).
“Acordar da cidade de Lisboa mais tarde do que as outras
Acordar da Rua do Ouro
Acordar do Rossio, as portas dos cafés
E no meio de tudo a gare, que nunca dorme
Como um coração que tem que pulsar através de vigilia e do sono”
“The waking up of Lisbon, later than other cities
The waking up of Rua do Ouro
The waking up of Rossio Square, at the doors of its cafes
And in the middle of it all the train station, which never rests
Like a heart that has to beat in both waking and sleeping hours”
A little bit hidden in the former Moorish quarter Mouraria, in a small street of one of Lisbon’s oldest districts, there’s Restaurant ‘Zé da Mouraria’. Open for a typical Portuguese lunch (almoço) from 12:00 till 16:00. Closed on Sundays.
Restaurant ‘Zé da Mouraria’ & very friendly staff, June 2019

On the wall in this restaurant there’s lots of portraits of famous fado singers, born in this neighborhood: Mouraria.
Restaurant ‘Zé da Mouraria’, Lisbon June 2019
No neighborhood in Lisbon is praised more in Fado music than Mouraria. It is said that the melancholic sounds of the music and singing of the Moorish people was at the base of Fado (meaning fate) music, often described as the Portuguese blues. More…..

Together with Alfama, the Mouraria area is a muddle of very narrow streets and small squares, which gives the visitor a glimpse of a forgotten age. Nowadays it is a trendy area.
Restaurant ‘Zé da Mouraria’, Lisbon, June 2019
Delicious: codfish (bacalhau). When you stay in Lisbon a must-try is bacalhau (dried and salted cod). The Portuguese adore it and it’s said that they know at least 365 different ways to cook it…one for each day of the year!
Restaurant ‘Zé da Mouraria’, Lisbon
Lunch is almost always fully booked; We waited for about half an hour in the street. Go early ( around 12:00 o’clock) or around 15:00. One of the best Lisbon restaurants! 🙂

A few minutes walk from Rossio Square, behind a small door in a popular tourist street in Lisbon, Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, there’s Casa do Alentejo: suddenly you step in an amazing Moorish palace, with an impressive courtyard!
Restaurant Casa do Alentejo Lisbon, a former Moorish palace
‘Casa do Alentejo’ was created 85 years ago, as a purpose to be a meeting place for people from Portugal’s historical province Alentejo (além Tejo means beyond the Tagus) and to cultivate its unique culture. At that time many people from this region left home in search for a better life in Lisbon.
Restaurant Casa do Alentejo Lisbon, a former Moorish palace
The palace dates from the last quarter of the 17th C., but its current appearance is a result of considerable alterations carried out in 1918.
Nowadays here’s the headquarters of the association of the Alentejo people.
Casa do Alentejo Lisbon, former Moorish palace, Loesje Broere & ballroom
Ballroom & activities
Many activities take place here: on Saturdays the ‘Alentejo afternoons’ (tardes Alentejanas), with choral groups. On Sunday, dancing begins at 3:30 pm in the beautifull ballroom. Mostly elderley people come here to socialize.
There’s also a library and a handicraft shop of typical products of Alentejo (downstairs).

Beautiful tiles (ajulejos) & Portuguese history
The dining rooms are picturesque, with open fireplaces and decorated with beautiful tiles (azulejos). The azulejo is a form of Portuguese painted, tin-glazed, ceramic tilework.
Tiles have become a typical aspect of Portuguese culture.
Azulejo (tile) comes from the Arabic word az-zulayj, meaning polished stone. Wherever you go in Portugal, azulejos are to be found inside and outside cafes, churches, palaces, ordinary houses and even ceilings, train- or subway stations.

Our choice for lunch: ensopado de borrego (lamb stew): 13 €, arroz de gambas (prawn and rice) 15 €. Small bottle of wine Monte de Vaqueira: 6 €.
Planning a trip to Lisbon? A must-try is to taste a delicious typical Portuguese liqueur: Ginja!Very popular! You can taste it in many places in Lisbon. My favorite: very tiny bar ‘Os Amigos da Severa’ (friends of Maria Severa, considered as the first fado singer).
Most people who visit Lisbon try a glass of Ginja at Rossio Square, a city center tourist attraction, but it’s really worth it to walk 10 minutes from there to sr. António, and taste his favoriteGinja Albergaria, Ginja is a liqueur made of cherry-like berry called Ginja (not surprisingly 😉 The berries are fermented into a brandy that’s slightly bitter, slightly sweet and very sticky.

Portuguese liqueur in Lisbon: Ginja with or without a cherry & spit the pit
You can order a Ginja with or without a cherry in it. The berries are on the bottom of the bottle and it requires a fair bit of skill to get just one berry into a glass. Most Portuguese people like to have their Ginjinha ‘com Ginja’ (with a cherry in the glass). If you don’t want it, ask for one ‘sem Ginja’ (without a cherry).The older Portuguese men drink their Ginja in one time. After this, they suck on the berry for a while and spit the pit onto the streets 🙁

The more lubricated the vocal cords are, the better the fado performance! A few glasses of Ginja give a great boost! 😉 A remarkable night in Mouraria with Erika Reusens and Luc de Leersnyder

Maria Severa, a gracious prostitute and Lisbon’s first fado singer
The tavern is located close to square Largo Maria Severa, the area where Maria lived during the nineteenth century, considered by many the first fado singer of Lisbon. The atmosphere of fado is everywhere in this little bar: by photos and posters accumulated on the walls, and the singing coming out of Mr. António’s radio.
Mouraria saw the birth of two great fado names – Maria Severaand Fernando Maurício. Nowadays the Moorish quarter is a melting pot of different cultures, living peacefully together 🙂 . There’re Fado houses, cheap (but good!) restaurants, taverns, bars and nightlife.

It is said that Maria Severawas born in this house, that’s why this place was renewed (in 2013) to promote fado as a tribute to this legendary singer. She died here, at the age of 26 years old, November 30, 1846.
Typical Portuguese restaurants are a little bit disorderly, but very clean with a big TV screen (people like watching TV while eating, football, futebol), TL-tubes on the ceiling and paper table-covers.
Nowadays historical area Mouraria in Lisbon is still filled with old taverns and small restaurants, serving traditional Portuguese food for local prices. In contrary to the more touristical historic areas, like Alfama or Bairro Alto, where prices in restaurants are mostly much higher.
Colourful Mouraria area embraces the past and the present. A multicultural area, where many nationalities live together peacefully. Nowadaysit is a popular and fashionable part of Lisbon. Currently, it is gradually renovated.
Organic grocery store Bomercado, opened in Mouraria Lisbon in 2018.
Organic shop Bomercado in Lisbon provides groceries, fruit, vegetables and fresh bread, Portuguese biological wines and much more. Good prices, highly recommended! Shopowner Frank is sympathetic and knowledgeable.
The many winding alleys still show the traces of the 500 years of Moorish domination (from 711-1249).
Area Mouraria is a muddle of narrow streets, stairs and small squares, which gives the visitor a glimpse of a forgotten age. Houses painted in several pastel colours or covered with antique tiles (Portuguese: azulejos).
The Portuguese language is peppered with words of Arabic origin, often those relating to food, farming and manual work. One commonly used is oxalá – a direct descendent of insha’Allah, the term meaning “God willing.”More….

I heard Chinese, Russian- or French people say: ‘How wonderful, but how do we get all this into our suitcase?’
Portuguese traditional ceramics: ‘Armazémdas Caldas’ , located at the fleamarket in Lisbon.
The shelves are full of crockery, tableware and decorative objects, in an explosion of colors and iconic products such as pumpkins, cabbages, swallows, roosters, frogs, lizards, sardines and hanging codfish.

Designer Bordalo Pinheiro had a great sense of humor.. 😉 many of his designs, for example the collection ofcabbage leaf dinnerware, are very funny…. !
Swallow nest (andorinha): symbol of loyalty and love
In 1891 designer RafaelBordalo Pinheiro decided to produce a set of ceramic pieces that looked like swallows. They integrated into Portuguese homes and became a symbol for a Portuguese house which lives on still today. Why it had such a massive success? It represents family, loyalty and love! 🙂
Dried and salted codfish (bacalhau), a faithful friend (fiel amigo) & history
The Portuguese adore codfish and it’s said that are 365 different ways to cook it…one recipe for each day of the year!
There’s a very long history with codfish: shortly after Columbus (about 500 years ago) discovered America, the Portuguese were fishing for cod near NewFoundland. They were the first Europeans to do so. The nickname of codfish is ‘fiel amigo’ (faithful friend). More…….
Grilled sardines (sardinhas) & party time in June: Feast days of the popular saints
Sardines play an important role in Portuguese culture. In the month of June traditionally millions of big and tasty sardines (sardinhas) are grilled outdoors. The streets of the historical areas in Lisbon are filled with a delicious smell (but also the smoke!) 😉
In June, the month of the Festas dos Santos Populares(Feast Days of the Popular Saints), the Lisbon nights are filled with lively festivities that take over the city’s historical center. Festivities 2019
Every year mid-June, the time-honoured Santo António celebrations take over the streets of Lisbon, filling them with grilled-sardine and sangria-selling stalls, cheery bunting, and happy people. More..
The narrow streets in area Bairro Alto(at night) are filled with people in a party mood. Every bar and club shuts its doors and moves its drinks to the windows, or on to tables outside.
June 2019, Lisbon & historical area Alfama
All the streets are decorated with garlands and lights, from Castelo to Mouraria, Graça to Alfama, and Ajuda to Bairro Alto.
Manjerico (basil), a symbol of affection & love poems
As a symbol of affection, people present each other with little pots of basil (manjerico) and paper carnations on which they write poems.
During the month of June there are many stalls in the city where you can buy the pots with basil (from 5 – 15 euro) and a selection of poems with various texts
“não digas que não amas – “do not say you don’t love me pois tens a voz a tremer – because your voice is trembling quando um não proclamas – when one does not proclaim um sim pretender dizer” – it is “yes” you mean to say….
The atmosphere is greatin this former palace in the heart of Lisbon. Once the recidence of a nobleman who loved to party, now everyone is welcome to admire the beautifully restored rooms, while enjoying fine food and drinks.
Welcome! Palace (Palácio) Chiado Lisbon & very nice waiter Aélio
History: Barão(Baron) Joaquim Pedro Quintela, 1st Conde de Farrobo
This elegant palace in Chiado (name of a square and its surrounding area) in Lisbon was built in 1781, where the aristocracy and bons vivants danced, enjoyed lavish banquets and admired new works of art. Baron de Quintelawas born in this palace.
Palace (Palácio) Chiado Lisbon (built in 1781 & a mobile phone….. )
Baron de Quintela: excesses and inordinate feasting
The future 2nd Baron of Quintela and 1st Conde of Farrobo was born in this palace, on 11 December 1801. Despite his importance in political, social and cultural life in Portugal at the time, he will always be remembered for his excesses and revels.
And intrinsically associated with the palace is the famous Portuguese expression ‘farrobodó‘ (from ‘forrobodó’ which literally means having a great party 😉 ).

We decided to order tea for two (1 st floor) and a small chocolate cake to share, because we just had lunch in another restaurant in Lisbon.
In this elegant palace with grandeur and beautiful frescoed ceilings we expected an elegant soft pastel designed tea set and gold colored spoons, but not just teabags to dip in our cups and small wooden cake forks to eat the cake? 😉 😉

It can be rather windy along the river Tagus, so don’t forget a sweater in case you like to have dinner here. Or, order a bottle of wine and a starter, enjoy it outside for at least a glass, then move inside for the main dish.
A warm summer evening while the sun is fading….whow!
Restaurant ‘Ponto Final’ is a perfect romantic location for a great dinner overlooking Lisbon by night. Make sure that you book a table outside in advance.
