“This alternative cultural center in Beato has a terrace, the Floating Garden, where you can rest your eyes from the Excel sheets and forget about that "reply to all" you did unintentionally. The Eka Palace also has exhibitions, parties and dance classes for those days when you really need your Bharata Natyam (Indian classical dance). Oh, and do not forget the famed afters. When everything seems dead in the city, here it is just getting started.”

“For over 30 years, Joaquim José Cortiço dedicated his life to collecting and studying industrial Portuguese tiles, which belonged to factories that went out of business. Today, it’s his grandchildren that continue to give life to his project with Cortiço & Netos, where you can find several ceramic tiles that tell its history from the 60’s onwards.”
