Fishy past

You can now obtain traditional Portuguese sardines in olive oil, but with a trace of the past!

This tasty tradition is recognised in a colourful fashion, with tins bearing dates back to 1916.  Each decade flaunts its own bright colour, and whilst the food inside the tin does not date back to the year it proclaims, this is a fun way to celebrate the past.

To participate, visit the Mundo fantástico da Sardinha Portuguesa in Lisbon’s Rossio Square.
