Today, my sixth article for the El Legado Andalusí (the Andalusi Legacy) has been published by the Foundation’s magazine. It’s about Lisbon, with a focus on the Andalusi imprint manifested in the ‘Alfama’ neighborhood, the Fado music, the Arab city walls, and the city’s gastronomy. The article also tackles the many marvels of the city and its culture, from the solidity of the Manueline Gothic style in the Belem Tower to the light elegance of the Chiado’s world-renowned cafés, with a special tribute to the city’s great literary figueres like Pessoa and Saramago.
