Highlight of the Week
LisbonWeek starts today!
The proposal for the 4th edition centres around living and rediscovering Lumiar ‐ the oldest council of the city which celebrates its 750th anniversary in 2017. It also happens to be the area of the city with the highest number of inhabitants. The historical and patrimonial relevance of this location will be a prominent feature of the programming along with the importance of the experiences felt by locals daily. The objective is to decentralize the attention given to more visible areas of the city and create a new interest in the many unique neighbourhoods which make this a fascinating metropolis , by bringing to the forefront the relevance of the spaces and its immaterial heritage. "In each neighbourhood, a city." ‐ will be the mission statement of the 4th edition of LisbonWeek as a reference to a re‐discovery of a city that will last no less than ten days. LisbonWeek tickets can be found on sale on the Ticketline online platform. Visitors will be able to purchase individual tickets for each activity they would like to partake in as well as access to the promotional Passport. The LisbonWeek Passport, bought at a cost of €25, includes 3 guided tours – ‘the Lumiar Palaces’, ‘Churches & Convents’ and ‘the Lumiar Farms’ – and an additional 4th visit which can include a tour of the local rich Urban Art or a meditative walk in the Monteiro-Mor botanical garden. The Passport offers a saving between €9 and €12 compared to tickets bought individually that cost €7 or €10 depending if the visit includes a bus tour – with the help of Gray Line – or if the tour is by foot.
