Icon of the Portuguese gastronomy in the same way as the famous “bacalhao” (codfish), the sardine became one of the symbols of Lisbon.

You will be able to taste sardines in Lisbon’s good restaurants, although we advise you to wait until June to enjoy it, it will be even more tasty!

The Portugueses also love canned sardines and eat LOADS of it!

Make your choice: sardines with olive oil, tomato or hot sauce. But the madness of the sardines does not stop there! For a few years, it has become a mascot that designers don’t hesitate to personalize in each and every which way possible. You can find it on T-shirts, toys, or life size in tiles.

As you can see, the love of the Portugueses for this simple and tasty fish is not ready to dry up!
