Casa Fernando Pessoa
Immerse yourself in the life and work of Portuguese Modernist founder and author Fernando Pessoa as you wander through his old apartment, browse through his book collection (digitalized), and attempt to decipher some of his handwritten notes.
Guided tours are recommended, where an expert guide peels the layers of the author’s haunting mind, his work, and his fascinating characters.
Carpintarias de São Lázaro
Currently in soft opening mode, this new cultural centre in the heart of Mouraria is housing temporary exhibitions in the afternoons, as construction works are done in the morning.
This three-floor former carpentry survived a fire and years of neglect but will soon become the new hub of contemporary art in the city, complete with restaurants, bars, and lounge areas.
Centro Cultural de Belém
The Centro Cultural de Belém is one of modern Lisbon’s biggest icons. Designed by Manuel Salgado and Vittorio Gregotti, it was built on a special site. Its modern architecture contrasts gently with some of the most iconic buildings of old Lisbon.
If you walk from Jerónimos to the CCB, you cross centuries of history in just a few steps. The CCB is one of the most popular places amongst Lisbonites and visitors for its closeness to the river, its gardens and cafés offering some of the best public spaces in the city.
With auditoriums, museums, temporary shows and major events, the CCB is a cultural hub with something for everyone.
Come and visit the shops, restaurants and cafeterias and the various exhibitions and concerts which make it one of the liveliest venues in Lisbon.
