A historic maritime city, welcoming modern explorers
Europe’s westernmost capital is probably also its most stunningly sited, on hilly ground in a bend of the River Tagus where it broadens out into a giant bay. Writers rave about Lisbon’s unique light; modern tourists also warm to the mild climate and relaxed feel of its summer nights, when the bars' patrons spill out onto cobbled streets. Centuries of maritime exploration have also left a rich artistic heritage.
Portuguese cuisine served with singing and folk dancing
A Severa specializes in good musical entertainment. On any given night, you can expect to see top singers or some fascinating folk dancers. The club is named after Maria Severa, who was a famous Portuguese fado singer.
Richard Nixon himself came here with his wife, Patricia, before becoming U.S. president. A Severa is conveniently located on the Rua das Gaveas. It can easily be reached by bus. The menu here is full of tasty, traditional Portuguese dishes.
