Maria Amor represents Portuguese women throughout history: The wives of the fishermen who wait for their men the whole night long, the women waiting for their soldiers, the mothers, and saudade, who only those who love can feel.

Tourists leaving Lisbon aboard cruise ships will pass the building of the Port of Lisbon. And this is the moment, when they see the city for the last time, basking in the late afternoon sun, that they understand the meaning of the word “saudade”.

This Sardine in his black gown likes to work and play hard. She is defiantly
top of his class! When he is not studying and collecting the colourful university ribbons she likes nothing better than play Fado de Coimbra with his “Guitar” late into the night. This sardine presents the youthfulness, energy and romance that is unique to this city.
Designer: Craig Wheatley
When we set sail on the sea, we never know what our nets will catch! Handmade in pure glass, this exceptional sardine is born of the raw material our glassmakers’ nets catch every day. Don’t miss the chance to fish your Sardine of the Day – demand is huge and there are no two alike!

The rocket is a current and futuristic attempt to venture into the unknown as the Portuguese ships. The boy is the embodiment of courage, curiosity and stories of the Portuguese explorers.

Nice Chiquita from Martinica/ dresses herself with a banana skin/ doesn’t

Designer: Cássio Loredano
Madonna, always young, so girlie, the queen of pop, and always in Vogue. Global stardom was not enough for her, and that’s why now queen of Lisbon and of the smokiest sardines. Madonna is a top sardine, irreverent, sexy, sparkling, and she is now part of Portugal and what this country has to offer the world. Madonna or a good sardine – why not both in one?
Designer: Ana Gomes
Narciso, with no ceremonies, asks fire to an unwary street lamp. The latter did not spar, remains stiff and silent. What would be our imaginary without Pátio das Cantigas? It wouldn’t be the same, not to Lisbon neither for us.
