This week in Lisbon: Week 29

by Lisboeta

Get ready for a another hot week in Lisbon!

Until July 17, temperatures in Portugal will rise, both on the coast and inland. And beyond the hot days are also expected “tropical nights”. In Lisbon, Monday has a predicted maximum of 40 degrees, a scenario that is expected to be repeated on Thursday, July 16.
Tropical nights are also expected, as the IPMA itself notes, which also warns: “The temperature values are above the usual for the time of year and this persistence may lead to a heat wave situation in various places in the country, especially in the interior.”

A new colored street was born this last week. After the famous Pink Street near Cais do Sodré, this time a blue colored street was painted. This action happens as the iconic Rua dos Bacalhoeiros became a pedestrian only street.
