    • Sintra Caterer and Musician

      Sintra Jul 18, 2014 at 11:41 AM

      Hi all.

      Planning my wedding in Sintra next September. I'm trying to find a caterer in the area who could provide food for a BBQ for the day after the wedding. The size of the group would be roughly 60 people.

      Also if anybody knew of a great local musician suitable for the wedding ceremony and cocktail reception that would be awesome.

      Thanks so much!

      Sesimbra Jun 23, 2014 at 4:13 AM

      I want to hire a quality road bike or mountain bike from 12 July to 23rd July.

      Bike Iberia will hire me a bike OK but they need to deliver to a hotel or an address available 9am - 5pm 'there must be a Front Desk open all day long during normal business hours.' they dont deliver to a personal address (I am staying in rented accomodation at a personal address).

      Is there anywhere in Sesimbra that I can use eg. hotel or shop address as a delivery and pick up address?

      Or is there anywhere else that I can hire from?

      Thank you

    • Holiday and Elevador Gloria

      Lisbon Jul 8, 2014 at 12:03 PM

      I will be in Lisbon on the Feast of Assumption (Friday Aug. 15), staying near the Elevador do Gloria. I want to ride the elevador, but am a little confused as to whether this means the elevador will be closed at certain times that day or night. Here is what Carris' web site says (English page), but I'm still confused:

      Monday to Thursday (except holiday eve): 7:00 a.m. to 11:55 p.m.
      Friday (except holiday) and holiday eve´s (Monday to Thursday): 7:00 a.m. to 00:25 a.m.
      Saturday (except holiday): 8:30 a.m. to 00:20 a.m.
      Sunday and holiday´s (except holiday eve): 9:00 a.m. to 11:55 p.m.
      Sunday (if holiday eve): 9:00 a.m. to 00:25 a.m.

      For one thing, I'm not sure how to interpret "holiday eve" and understand how it applies to me. I will get to Lisbon Thursday morning and leave Saturday afternoon. I'm assuming that on Friday, if Feast of Assumption is a major holiday in Portugal, the elevador runs from 9:00 to almost midnight, I guess on the Thursday before, it runs from 7:00 to almost midnight. Are these assumptions correct?

      we are coming by car from Castelo de Vide and will visit sites of Evora for 2 days in July. Should we stay in Evora itself or base ourselves somewhere nearby (Moura? Estremoz?) we dont want a fancy poussada ,just a nice clean little residencial.

      It seems that most of the places within the city are very expensive, and the ones that arent seem to have bad reviews on here. Also is parking going to be a problem inside the city? thanks all.

      3) The Roman Temple, this is just a pic taking thing right, seems not much to it
      4) Cathedral, it costed 1 euro is it donation or? worth it to go in?
      5) Inquisition palace , is it worth to go in? how much?
      6) CIty council of Évora
