O poder da reinvenção
A National Geographic Traveler passou 48 horas em Lisboa. Rendeu-se aos encantos da cidade, à sua capacidade de se reinventar e às nossas preciosidades antigas e deliciosas. "A Vida Portuguesa stocks traditional artisanal crafts, including brightly striped Alentejo woolen blankets that look entirely contemporary." "Portugal's capital has long mastered that art of reinvention. After a massive earthquake leveled most of the city in 1755, Lisbon was quickly rebuilt, and its pragmatic spirit hasn't flagged since. Even Portugal's current debt crisis hasn't curbed, at least so far, the city's renovations."(...) Economic woes haven't dimmed Lisbon's proud beauty and ambitious drive".
