Is the flavor that is in the mouth of everyone during the Festas de Lisboa and also pays homage to a traditional and beloved Portuguese product.

Avant-gardist and revolutionary the Porto sardine is a patchwork of landmarks contrasting from classical to modern, decorative to graphic, art nouveau to industrial. Azulejos (tiles), Ponte D.
