Swallows over Lisbon: when a city loves tradition
"(...) A concept similar to that of Catarina Portas. Two streets over and around the corner is one of her shops, which also sells only traditional and national goods like cosmetics, kitchen or office supplies. “We believe that there is a future for old Portuguese products,” she says. And her idea – with which she seemed to be the trendsetter – has been working for seven years. Later, when the trend seemed to approach its peak, she expanded and bought three of the historical Quiosques de Refresco– commercial stands from the 19th century that are located at public places in the city. There, enjoying traditional drinks like leite perfumado, milk laced with cinnamon, lemon and sugar, people refresh themselves. “Why drink Coca Cola if you are able to support your own country so delicious?” Asks customer José Silva as he enjoys his beverage."
