Hi, I’m Mariana

I’ve lived in Lisbon for 8 years

I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese and some Italian

I am Photographer


I am passionate about History, popular culture, city social life and food. Everywhere I go I will always have a trivia to share or will try to get people into having a bite in a local restaurant or to look at a place in a different angle. I do believe places are made of people crossings and mixes - Lisbon is a tale a of cultures around centuries. Whenever I travel, I try to make sure I get to know locals and interact with them, so it would be my pleasure to show "my places" to someone who doesn't know Portugal as I do. At the present moment, I work as a documentary photographer for one of the parish councils in the city hall, so my main day-to-day functions envolve walking around town photographing events, landscapes and cultural and political gatherings, making my knowledge about Lisbon to grow further.
