Barrio Alto e Doca de Santo Amaro
Love isn’t just kissing and cuddling, you have to do other fun activities apart of that, like going out for a drink and even dance a little. When we dance we release endorphins, which make us feel better, happier and more active. Dancing is a fun activity that can strengthen our relationships. Where to go dancing? Well, in Barrio Alto, there are plenty of bars, pubs and discos for all ages and tastes. Another option is the Doca de Santo Amaro, which is an area that hosts many vibrant discos.
Love reigns over the whole city. This is the feeling you will feel once above Miradouro de Santa Luzia, a viewpoint that offers incredible views of the entire city, as well as Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantare. From these two viewpoints you’ll feel like the protagonists of Titanic, but with solid ground under your feet, which is much safer.
The word “fado” means “destiny” in Latin, so if fate has let you find your soul mate, you should definitively come to a fado performance, “songs to life, love, heartbreaks, joys, mishaps and melancholy. ” Cafe Luso in Travessa da Queimada 10, Bairro Alto is one of the best places to enjoy a fado performance in Portugal.
