52 weeks, 52 things to do in 2013 - Santo Antonio Lisboa

52 weeks, 52 things to do in 2013 - Santo Antonio Lisboa | Portuguese Food and Portuguese Wine | Scoop.it

Damn we're organized. Print this out, stick it to the fridge, fill your year with fun and cheer

 Festa De Santo Antonio

When: June 13

Where: Lisbon, Portugal

The good thing about religious festivals in southern Europe is that they don’t tend to be all that pious.

This one, in Portugal’s capital, is held in honor of the city’s patron saint.

It attracts thousands of Catholics who believe in the saint’s miraculous healing powers. It also attracts thousands more non-Catholics who believe in the saint’s miraculous powers of giving the whole city an excuse to make merry with copious amounts of food and wine.

The 46 Places to Go in - Porto, Portugal #28

The 46 Places to Go in - Porto, Portugal #28 | Portuguese Food and Portuguese Wine | Scoop.it
From art in Rio to wine in China to food in Washington, D.C., here are dozens of reasons to escape and explore this year.

 

Portugal’s economic pain is your gain in Porto, one of Western Europe’s great bargains. New boutique hotels and restaurants, like the Yeatman, dramatically perched above the Douro River featuring Porto’s first Michelin-starred restaurant, have brought a fresh burnish to this Unesco-protected city where labyrinthine narrow streets, ancient buildings and black-cloaked students inspired a young English tutor who lived here in the early 1990s named J. K. Rowling. The financial downturn doesn’t detract from the town’s most prominent industry — port wine — which can be sampled in the cellars of Sandeman, Graham’s or Taylor-Fladgate with a terraced restaurant, on the Douro’s south bank. — Finn-Olaf Jones
