my 10 years dream came true this year!!! I'm coming to Lisboa!! I am crazy about Portugal for a very long time, especially after I read Jose Saramago (which is the reason why I would like to study portuguese languese..), after I discovered Madredeus and saw the absolutely gorgeous movie of Win Wenders, "Lisbon Story"...
Now we'll go to Barcelona, Madrid and finally, Lisboa. We will be there between the 8th of June and the 13th of June (if I'll be able to find a train that can leave Lisbon on the 13th and be in Barcelona before midday on the 14th when our plane leaves)
After searching for a place to stay, I found what appeared to me as heaven: Pension Ninho das Aguias, on Costa do Castelo 74. We booked by phone a room with a view, for 45EUR/night.
Can somebody tell me, is it a good choice? Do you know this pension? Is the location ok, is it safe? I have a lot of other question, like if buying a Lisboa Card is a good thing to do? How much would you have to pay for food (in a small restaurant and in a supermarket)?
About the things to see I found plenty of info on the net, maybe too much info, my head is crowded and foggy already, but the most important for me would be where should I go to see the "portuguese atmosphere"? Old streets, quietness, you know what I mean..
I'm coming with my husband and we would very much like to find a church and marry there!!! we only had the civil ceremony here. Can you help me with any advise on this matter, as well?
I think these are the most important issues. I would very much appreciate any help!
Thanks a lot!!
