Lisbon is a study in #contrasts . Here’s the 1993 winner of the prestigious Valmor and Municipal Architecture Award (Prémios Valmor e Municipal de Arquitectura) across the street from a ruin that looks like an abandoned housing block called Vila Sergio. Does anyone know the history of Vila Sergio? If so, DM me. #Remarkable .
If you’re looking for some delicious Portuguese food and some fine wine, then you need to check out “Enoteca de Belém.” This restaurant/wine bar is a hidden gem for wine lovers. There are bottles wherever you look and the food is amazing! Located in a small alley, near the Pastéis de Belém, and with a rating of 8.7/10 on foursquare, and 4.5/5 on Tripadvisor, this restaurant definitely deserves some attention if you ever find yourself in Lisbon, and more specifically in the area of Belém.
'By day Lisbon has a naive theatrical quality that enchants and captivates, but by night it is a fairy-tale city, descending over lighted terraces to the sea, like a woman in festive garments going down to meet her dark lover.'
