The capital of Portugal, Lisbon, is increasingly making a name for itself as a hip and fun travel destination in Europe. One of its best kept secrets is the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian. Nestled within lush greenery is an expansive complex, it comprises an auditorium, exhibition centre, an art library, the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum and the Modern Art Centre.
Opened in 1969, the Museum boasts a substantial collection of works ranging from Ottoman Iznik pottery to European Renaissance paintings. Its modern art counterpart is just across the park. The ongoing Portugal em Flagrante exhibition is breathtaking, taking viewers through a comprehensive study of Portuguese art in the 20th century.
