This Week In Lisbon

This week in Lisbon: Week 31

Get ready for a new a new week, full of new stuff to do around the city!

With high temperatures giving a break during the week (yes only during the week…), it’s the ideal time to get off the beach for a while.

Tourism of Lisbon released new incentives to promote the return of tourism to Portugal’s capital. Discounts on trips on Carristur, museums, wineries and more. In a year in all atypical, the tourism region of Lisbon is encouraging the Portuguese to discover the city. And it does it in the most desirable way: with campaigns, supported by promotions.

Discounts on boat trips through the Tagus or on land through the hills of the city, meals at special prices in restaurants and wineries and free entrances to exhibitions are just some of the incentives that the Lisbon Region has just added to the offers of the campaign “Encontrei Lisboa”, promoted by the Regional Tourism Entity of the Lisbon Region (ERT-RL) in collaboration with the Lisbon Tourism Association.

From July 16 to August 8 you will be able to see the exhibition “Bairro Arte” & “Correnteza Housing, in the Circle of Arquitetura, in Dafundo. This is a project from the Municipality of Oeiras that showcases a project research work of two groups of integrated master’s students of the Faculty of Architecture and Arts of the Lusíada University of Lisbon. To be seen from 2 PM to 7 PM, near Algés market.
