What is different about Christmas in Lisbon?

November is counting its last few days. Scarves find their way back to the accessory repertoire. Radiator makes creaking sounds being wheeled in to the living room, because, let's be honest - Portugal is not ready for the winter season. It is, however, successfully getting ready for Christmas! If you ever visited Berlin, Vienna or even London in December you would agree with me that these guys know how to make it festive. Lisbon is a little different. Even though the shopping centres and little streets walking down to Chiado announce the beginning of gift-buying season with light garlands and beautiful decorations, this town doesn't seem to go crazy over the commercial hype. The true meaning of Christmas is more present here, and it's not the material one. So we would like to join in and celebrate our first Natal with you - in giving each other gifts that last.


Pastel de Nata – one of the most iconic symbols of Portugal! Enjoy a unique opportunity of getting your hands on baking inside the kitchen of a real award-winning bakery. You will learn how to make the famously delicious Pastel de Nata from scratch. 

At the end of the class, enjoy the warm tarts along with a coffee or, even better, some sour cherry liquor served inside an edible chocolate cup.


During this 2-hour workshop you will learn how to make a tile from scratch! Whether we will form the ceramic ourselves from clay or use one that we have in our studio to make the process faster, the decoration process is entirely up to your imagination. 

We will teach you the different technique of tile painting, drawing, engraving and more. Of course, you get to keep the masterpiece!


This is the perfect Portuguese course for those who work or study in Lisbon. The Part-Time course extends over a longer period of time and is less intensive, but that doesn’t mean less effective. We will make sure that you feel motivated and encouraged by your teacher.

It’s a perfect opportunity to make yourself or your loved one feel more at home by learning the language. 


Learn the secrets of Portuguese gastronomy while you cook the traditional dinner.

During the class, we will share the nuances and specifics of traditional Portuguese recipes. Wine and snacks will be available during the class: some people say the best way to cook is with a glass of wine in your hand!

The menu varies as we use fresh and seasonal products.


Samantha is here to share years of professional artistic experience gathered from all over the world with you. The course will take place at a studio space with one on one attention within the group.

During this one month course you will complete an A3 piece in charcoal. Starting from basics, you will  continue to advanced techniques in drawing and painting.


We’re in Portugal – one of the best spots for surfing. So if you or your friends wanted to give it a go, don’t get scared away by the cold weather – now it’s peak season for hitting the waves. 

We’re aware that the waves are different each day in various locations, but no need to worry. Guys from Go Surf Lisboa will pick you up from anywhere in Lisbon and take you to the best spot for surfing that day!
