Discovering and sharing the most peculiar aspects of Lisbon is what excites us the most in this project.

This city has become, for some time now, a very well-known destination for travel lovers for multiple reasons: wonderful weather, delicious food, heritage, ancient and contemporary art, traditions and, of course, the hospitality and sympathy of its people.

However, in addition to these points, we do believe that often what goes unnoticed at first glance can enrich your experience and help create more meaningful memories.

So if you’re planning to visit Lisbon or you’re just curious about this amazing city, you’re in the right place.

We’re two old friends, Gracinda Gomes and Teresa Mouro, who met in Lisbon in the 80s, during our Graphic Design education. After over 30 years we returned to the same place to celebrate our friendship and our project, getLISBON (started in 2018).

But you might be wondering “who are they?”.

We’re two old friends, Gracinda Gomes and Teresa Mouro, who met in Lisbon in the 80s, during our Graphic Design education.

At that time, in order to capture some images for the photography course, we decided to venture into Alfama. We were looking for picturesque corners and unique details.

At the time, we were far from imagining what the future held for us…

From then, life gave us many experiences and learning opportunities, such as Image and Communication (Gracinda) and History of Art (Teresa).

After over 30 years we returned to the same place to celebrate our friendship and our project, getLISBON (started in 2018).

Here we share our passions with you, including unusual, curious and meaningful details about this storytelling city that has fascinated us for so long.

Join us on this adventure!

P.S.: Thank you to our friend Isaura and our guest of Lisbon in Us, Ryoko Inamura, who took the pictures in 1987 and 2021, respectively. 🙂

The project getLISBON has been very rewarding and we want to continue revealing the singularities of fascinating Lisbon.
