We thought we were going to rest… But we’ve been curious !
What we thought Caldas da rainha was : A little town very quiet where we could rest after 5 days cycling the portuguese coast… But what we really found : A small town full of positive energy and creative people, very underground with a touch of craziness and simplicity, exactly what we’re craving for !
Here we are street art, gastronomy and cocktails…
Start by a street art tour
So many murals to see that we haven’t been able to see them all… No problem, we’ll come back, count on us !
Zoom on Portugal and then on Caldas da rainha (west side of Portugal, north of Lisbon) and follow the guide to see our favorite pieces of work. You can see a picture on each spot… Hours of work on my side, yes, enjoy !
Note: This map is still under construction as at some point it will reference all the street art pieces we’ve seen during our 2 years of travel. For now on, anything out of Caldas da Rainha, Covilha or lebanon might not be accurate. And if you’d like me to feature a piece of work you’re working on or you like, contact me ==> firstname.lastname@example.org
Gorgeous figurative mural on an old building, impressive by its size and the quality of details. We saw other work from this artist in Covilha (for example) but we still don’t know who this person is. If you know the artist’s name or instagram, we’d be forever greatful to hear about it !
Work in progress by @2carryon. A bit far from the center but sometimes, when you’re very very curious, a little detour is worth it…

Then go for a walk in “parque dom Carlos I”
And let the temptation lead you to “Raizes”
A very cool bistronomy style restaurant in the parque dom Carlos I, where you’ll try delicious cocktails made by a very talented and passionate mixologist. He will make sure to follow your tastes and food choices and can even offer a tasting style experience. If your traveling budget is not too tight, just go for it and let these two brothers surprise you with their vision of what gastronomy should be.
Here you go, first cocktail of a delicious serie… Sorry for the zoom in/zoom out effect on the video, it seems that my smartphone had difficulties to adapt to the light there but I had to publish at least one of my videos of “Zé” working on our cocktails… It looks so easy when he does it, right ?!?
