Fare Magazine – Issue 11: Lisbon

Select Title

Fare connects armchair travelers with immersive and nuanced stories from cities around the world, and also serves as a kind of roadmap for those who are ready to make the actual trip to see things for themselves.

Lisbon's steep, sun-drenched hills are home to crumbling tiled facades, pastel hues, and landscaped parks. In a city awash with new opportunities, Lisboetas still share in their collective memory of the city's past.

In Fare: Lisbon:

  • Trace the history of the traditional pastries and sweets borne out of Portugal's convents, including the famous pastel de nata

  • Visit Taberna do Calhau, where architect-turned-chef Leopoldo Calhau has designed a modern homage to Alentejo taberna culture

  • Hear the stories of Lisbon's rescued neon signs from days gone by—and the graphic designers who turned their lives upside down to preserve them

  • Meet the producers making grogue—and preserving Cape Verdean culture—in the city's hidden sugarcane fields

  • Wander through the Alfama to find the sorrowful soul of the fado houses

  • Explore the city through the eyes and found-objects of collector and designer Joana Astolfi
