"portuguese practice carvalho araújo arquitectura e design has recently opened the ‘de lemos’ restaurant and guesthouse embedded in the sloping vineyards of passos de silgueiros in the north. a winding trail through a wooded area hugs the subtle twists and turns in the landscape until arriving to an open vineyard where the trail is extruded into a concrete structure adapting to the exact contours of the terrain. the ‘de lemos’ building contains a guesthouse and restaurant, both aimed at inciting a deeper investigation into the locally-made wine. a series of functions are organized linearly along the hill including a tasting room, discussion area, analysis and wine critique space, all enclosed within a full-height curtain wall overlooking the fields." via designboom

Day 195 - A Royal Affair


Quem perdeu a oportunidade de ver este filme, que em março deste ano estreou nas salas de cinema portuguesas, não deixe agora de procurar por ele. O filme é Realmente muito bom (eu sou suspeita porque tenho um fraquinho por filmes de época).
Ao actor Mads Mikkelsen (já próximo dos 50) uma salva de palmas, que além da sua excelente interpretação rebenta a escala de sex appeal possível para um só filme. A realização e a fotografia do filme também ganham pontos!
Gostei do facto não perceber absolutamente nada do que eles diziam (as legendas neste caso são fundamentais acreditem!)
É certamente um filme que não me vai sair da cabeça por algum tempo.

25 REASONS TO LOVE LISBON

artigo completo na Lisbon Magazine



MY REASONS TO LOVE LISBON:

1 | IT’S UNPRETENTIOUS
Lisbon is cool because it’s not interested in fitting in.

3| IT’S ONE BIG ART GALLERY
Lisbon is filled with imaginatively-adorned streets, from artistic (and not-so-artistic) graffiti, to dazzling tile panels on walls, to art nouveau store signs, to its characteristic cobblestone design pavements. Everywhere you turn is someone’s work of art.

4| THE WORLD’S BEST PASTRIES

7| IT’S BOHEMIAN YET TRENDY
Somehow Lisbon holds on to its unconventional styles while also being up-to-date on the latest global trends. 

8| ARCHITECTURAL DIVERSITY
Here, no two buildings are alike. 

10| IT’S TIMELESS
(...)the past and the present coexist in Lisbon.

11| IT’S HAUNTED BY GHOSTS OF POETS
Like other great historical cities, Lisbon has inspired artists and writers, and its soulful atmosphere feels haunted by writers such as Fernando Pessoa, Eça de Queiroz or Nobel Prize-winning José Saramago.

14| THE BEST CLIMATE (IN THE WORLD)
(...)300 days of sunshine throughout the year.

15| THE BEACHES
The only other major city blessed with sand and sea is Barcelona, but Lisbon’s coastline is bigger, more diverse and beautiful.

20| THE COFFEE IS BETTER AND THE TEA IS ONE-OF-A-KIND
Portugal knows a thing or two about coffee. (...) A tiny cup of strong, black coffee in Lisbon is called a “bica,” and if you’re a caffeine addict, you won’t find better coffee anywhere else. If you prefer tea, try the only tea produced in Europe, the Gorreana green tea from Portugal’s Azores.


25| IT’S SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL
Lisbon’s luminosity and seductive alleys that force you to wander around discovering hidden secrets make it one of the world’s most beautiful cities.
