Portugal, Lisbon – Under the Stars

As I’ve posted many times on Lisbon (you can search for prior posts on this website) I will only post about things that are new.

So today I wanted to mention a must see if you like history, music, creativity and light shows. Many locals don’t even know about this but I discovered it last year and enjoyed it so much I wanted to see it again and this time took two of my cruise buddies – Dan and Nellie – to see it.

There are two 45 minute shows each night from early May to the Fall. They last 45 minutes and are at the El Convento do Carmo in the Chiado area. It is an astonishing light show in the ruined but still spectacular (even though roofless) convent that tells the story from the point of view of

He building and what it has seen if Lisbon history since it was first built in the 1300s. I love it and a bargain at 15 Euros.

Pictures can’t do it full justice but to give you an idea here are some.
