Hidden behind normal doors lies the restaurant and culture center “Casa do Alentejo”, built around late XVII century as a Palace, with time changed its purpose for a school, a casino and finally bought as a place of gathering from people from Alentejo, who in those days came for Lisbon in search of work and better conditions.
Today is more than just a beautiful and relaxing place, take your time and taste some of the much recommended regional “petiscos”, that what its called to the small portions you can eat in between meals, or desserts in the cafeteria. Besides this is a great restaurant for a lunch or dinner in Lisbon.
While in there take notice that it is a place of theirs, you will find people playing cards, reading newspapers or just taking a nap so, pay attention and don’t disturb them.
Specially on the weekends afternoons you will find some culture activities like “Canto Alentejano”, a Alentejo’s regional chantings.
A last hint, Casa do Alentejo is one of the places where you can find and enjoy Lupins.
