real people, real food


Camilla Watson arrived in Mouraria in 2007 and become famous thanks to an unusual photographic technique: images of older residents of the neighbourhood printed on the walls of buildings. Fan of traditional Portuguese food, she love sardines, beans with chorizo ​​and snails with beer at the end of the day! With her is the not less popular D. Quixote, the faithful companion.

How did you arrive in Mouraria?
It all started in early 2007...

Lisbon, which this year welcomes Champions League final, suffered an invasion of Spanish fans, among which we found Tomás and his group of friends in Costa do Castelo coffee, between Mouraria and Castelo S. Jorge.

  - How did you arrive in Lisbon?
  - We arrive on a van and this is where we will sleep today. It's cheaper!
  - Have you already taste some typical Portuguese dish?
  - No, we brought food from home to save.

Although they arrived on the morning of the day before the game, they were enchanted by the beauty of the city, as well as the quality of the beer!

  - Today we've been in Praça do Comércio, see the Champions League Cup, and the river Tejo...

Passionate about travel and long weekends, Kat and Fabio arrived in Lisbon in full football fever. "We must be the only people in Lisbon that are not here to see the football game", they say between laughs.

They found a hostel in Belém - "the only place we found a room" – and tasted some of the local cuisine.

"We loved Pastéis de Nata, I think we even exaggerate a little ..."
Ok, how many?
I ate six, confessed Fabio.

As for dinner they chose Enoteca, in Belém, where they tasted rice with duck, veal, prawns and mushrooms...
