Where you'll be

This experience is held at SakeMico, our Tasting Room in Campo de Ourique, one of Lisbon's oldest neighborhoods. It was the only area left undevastated by the earthquake, tsunami and ensuing fires of 1755. It is often referred to as a "city within a city" as it is a self sufficient parish. Today it boasts an eclectic mix of 19th century, retro and modern architecture and a diverse population of old Portuguese families, artists and expats.
