Amazing place, it was interesting to watch the people in cinema and those on the street from lovely balcony. In addition we have enjoyed really tasty pizza ( one of the best!) with glass of wine. Very atmosphere place.
The last time I've been here was to watch a movie, in a horror movie festival, one of many events taking place in this cinema.
It's not a modern place, it has history, and tons of personality. Maybe because of it, people usually feel so comfortable around.
We caught Tram 28 to here and took the Metro back.
The site entrance is a little hard to find and 70% of tourists end up talking to a guard at the tradesman's entrance and he will only show you where to go on a paper map not a smartphone or tablet.
Once in you can go off exploring in...
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
