Lisbon’s Alma Africana

Lisbon was the first European city to develop trade and cultural ties with Africa, bringing the art and culture of different civilizations to the Old Continent. To see how European and specifically Portuguese culture influenced African art and vice versa, you should visit Lisbon’s African Soul (Alma Africana) exhibition at Páteo da Galé, a space in Praça do Comércio, through the arches next to the city’s main tourism office. The exhibition is open every day except Mondays until February 7 and offers free entries on Sundays and Wednesdays.
