Taking a look at the following pictures from Lisbon, our capital, it's not hard to imagine why we made it to the 10 top destinations for 2015, by Lonely Planet!

And this is "not all that Portugal has to offer" in terms of quality and price.

Here are some places of this beautiful contry that we visit with our students:

Going to the movies in Lisbon

The movie "Os Maias"

Based on one of the most famous and well-known Portuguese novel, written by the great Eça de Queiroz in the 19th century, the movie "Os Maias" was recently release in the portuguese movie theatres, and we decided to take our students to watch it.

The movie tells the story of the secret love between Carlos da Maia and Maria Eduarda, until the moment they find out they are brother and sister, separated at a very young age.

Despite the fact that the movie is spoken in Portuguese and not subtitle (which makes us VERY proud of our students), we believe this was a great opportunity for them to contact with both a great literary reference and the Portuguese Movie culture.

Opened in 1998, the Oceanário was the centerpiece of the XXth Century's last World Fair, themed "The Oceans, a Heritage for the Future". With over one million visitors per year, the Oceanário is the 2nd most visited place in Lisbon.

We were so lucky that got to visit the backstage, where they feed all the fish from the main tank.
