WHAT TO VISIT 1 • TORRE DE BELÉM Soaring high above the seafront of the Lisbon quays, this great tower displays a veritable fusion of architectural styles from the Mudejar to the Moorish, the Gothic to the Romanesque. It has stood watch over the mouth of the Tagus River since its construction under the patronage of Saint John back in the 16th century. Since then, it has risen to become perhaps the most iconic feature of the city, famed as the last sight adventurers like the prodigal Vasco da Gama would have seen as they drifted out into the vast Atlantic Ocean. UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983

15


2 • PRAÇA DO COMÉRCIO Also known as Terreiro do Paço, this square is one of the most famous places in Lisboa and is located in Baixa Pombalina (downtown), facing Tagus river. Throughout centuries many heads of state disembarked here for meetings with Portuguese queens and kings, where the royal palace stood over two centuries until 1755. Other important events took place at this location such as the destruction caused by the major earthquake in 1755 and the regicide of D. Carlos and his son in 1908 marking the beginning of end of the monarchy in Portugal. This square was also a strategic point during the 25th April Revolution.

16


3 • PANTEÃO NACIONAL The National Pantheon, housing the tombs of Portugal’s major historic celebrities, is located on the original site of the church of Santa Engrácia. Founded in the second half of the 16th century, the building was totally rebuilt at the end of the 17th century by the architect João Antunes. Even though it was never used as a place of worship, it still preserves, under its modern dome, a majestic nave with a polychrome marble decoration typical of the Portuguese Baroque architecture. Being an icon of Lisbon’s cityscape and having a privileged location, as it overlooks the city’s historic centre and the river Tagus, it is listed as a National Monument.

17


4 • MOSTEIRO DOS JERÕNIMOS It was built to mark Portugal’s most glorious age which was called ‘The Age of Exploration’. The fusion of architectural designs, known as the Manueline style, stands as testimony to the cultures encountered by Lisboa’s explorers, while the money used to build the structure came from Portugal’s international trade in cloves, cumin and exotic spices. Apart from its architectural beauty, you also have the opportunity to admire the amazing tombs of Portuguese figures such as Camões, Vasco da Gama, and D. Manuel I. It is also another of the city’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

18


5 • ALFAMA The historic quarters are definitely a must-see in Lisboa, especially Alfama that show us the authenticity of the city. Located in the heart of the city, and being one of the oldest quarters, Alfama is the right place and one of the most typical locations to discover the Portuguese culture. The narrow streets, flowered balconies, restaurants, fado and daily life scenes are part of the tour. Leading up the steep hill from the Tejo Estuary to the Castle, contained within this diverse and charismatic district are many historic buildings including the Se Cathedral, the Castle, the National Pantheon and Saint Anthony’s Church. Alfama is also one of the best places to eat some sardines while enjoying the famous Santos Populares in Lisboa.

19


6 • ELÉTRICO 28 The most iconic Tram in Lisboa is the 28 which has been working its way up the steep, cobbled roads and into the old Alfama district for decades. The journey starts below the palm-spotted hills of Graça, and weaves toward the hair-pin alleys of Escolas Gerais, before pulling up to a halt beneath the gorgeous domes of the Estrela Basilica. The people-watching opportunities from the windows are second-to-none, and you’re bound to discover decades of history as you pass the various majestic palaces and castles along the route.

20


7 • CASTELO DE SÃO JORGE Castelo de S. Jorge is unquestionably the most visible landmark of Lisbon’s historic center. Standing tall and firm above the streets of the old Alfama District, the great citadel was first built more than 2,000 years ago by the Romans. Since then, it has been developed by subsequent rulers of the city, from the Berbers to the Reconquista knights. Today it has mighty palisades and crenulated towers to admire, along with an encircling dry moat and other anti-siege features. Pass beneath the large gate here and notice the Portuguese royal seal, marking the country’s monarchic strength.

21


TIPS TIP 1 Tower of BelĂŠm has a rhino cast in stone TIP 2 The National Pantheon has a rooftop

22


TIP 3 The best sunset view is at Miradouro da Senhora do Monte TIP 4 It’s better to drink coffee while eating pastel de nata TIP 5 The only official Erasmus Corner is in Bairro Alto

GET TO KNOW THE ESN LISBOA SLANG

ESN Lisboa is known for having developed its own vocabulary throughout the years. Sometimes, it can be difficult to keep up with our conversations given the amount of specific slang we may use. Worry not, here it is a brief glossary of expressions used in ESN Lisboa so that, in the end of the weekend, you will be already fluent in our local dialect. All the examples are based in real cases! Sorry, it just works in Portuguese!

24


This is probably the most used word by ESN Lisboa volunteers and it is used to describe someone in any situation, whether they are doing something completely crazy or completely normal. You can also use this to simply say “Hi”. Examples: Louca mordendo o cubo de gelo / Louca espalhando esse protetor solar / Madalenas? Secas essas loucas!

When you feel the need or you see someone that needs to free themselves! Examples: Aquele Erasmus precisa de muita soltura / Não estava à espera que ele se soltasse tanto

25


This word is specially suitable when it refers to something you were really wishing for or something that you know will leave you satisfied. Examples: Apetece-me mesmo um Glovo maroto / Hmmm agora ia um gelado maroto, não?

This adjective is also applicable in almost every situation and it serves to emphasize both the importance and simplicity of something in your daily life. Examples: Preciso mesmo daquele bronze básico / Tens aí um Guronsan básico?

26


As you may imagine, this word is used whenever you want to describe something good, tasty or someone sexy. Examples: Queria muito aquele mojito gostoso / Preciso muito de um óleo de coco gostoso

Sometimes you feel the need to banish some people of your events, your section or maybe your life. When you feel that need use this word all you want! It can also be used to declare the end of something. Examples: Declaro o banimento desta relação / Banidos, todos banidos!

27


When you see or taste something bad, this is the perfect way to describe it! Examples: Nossa, que gin madrasto! / Aqueles calamares eram muito madrastos

Many times, one may feel that someone crossed a line or that a situation was too unexpectable. This word is useful to explain the gravity of some situation. Examples: Toda aquela noite foi muito grave! / Não estou a saber lidar com a gravidade desta situação!

28


NÃO SEI (CONSIGO) LIDAR Whenever something is too good or too bad that you are having trouble processing it in your mind, this can be a very useful expression. Examples: Não estou a saber lidar com aquela meia branca / Não consigo lidar com este daiquiri de morango / Não sei lidar com as calças do João Vasco

ADD THE SUFFIX -UXO OR -ITXO To make every word sexier, it is essential to add something to them, in this case the suffix to virtually every word in a sentence. Examples: Vai uma joluxa ali no jardimzitxo? / Se vejo mais um folhaduxo de feta, não sei que faça!

29


USE THE 3RD PERSON Being the capital, sometimes we feel the need to get a bit fancy. To forget the fact that our bank accounts are empty, we tend to use quite often the 3rd person when speaking to our friends, family or even our dogs. Examples: Cookie, pare já de morder a almofada do El Corte Ingles / Bora louca, deixe tudo na pista! / Sabia que o tomate é uma fruta, louca?

USE THE GERUND Despite being a tradition of Brazilian Portuguese, we found that using the gerund for several verbs brings a certain “je ne sais quoi” to the whole sentence. Examples: Benzendo o gin tónico / Ressuscitando a dignidade / Purificando a alma

30


Keep in mind that you can use more than one expression in one sentence! Exemplos: Gente, muito grave, nĂŁo sei se consigo lidar/ Quero muito aquele geladuxo maroto/ Miguxa, vamos muito beber aquele cafezitxo louco.
