Why the Gulbenkian is one of Lisbon's highlights

I’m lured to Lisbon fairly regularly for a dose of culture, great restaurants and nightlife to balance out my peaceful village life in central Portugal. I usually take the opportunity to make some new discoveries but there are some places I find myself going back to time and time again. The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation is one of them.

Art at the Gulbenkian

One of the things I love about the Gulbenkian is the contemporary art. As well as a rotating display of the Modern Art Centre’s permanent collection, there are always temporary exhibitions throughout the complex, which includes the art gallery, foundation building, museum and gardens.

Sometimes the temporary exhibitions are better than others and my most recent visit was one of those times. There were three exhibitions that I loved and you might enjoy too if you’re visiting Lisbon any time soon.
