Meet our Lisbon City Manager

Bernardo Reis

Ask Bernardo what to eat in Lisbon, and he’ll tell you to try polvo à lagareiro (octopus with olive oil). Looking for something to do on the weekends? He’ll suggest biking to Belem or flying to the Azores islands. Searching for the best viewpoint in town? Bernardo will tell you it’s impossible to choose more than one. (He’s right). Born into a Portuguese family in the Brazilian Amazon, Bernardo has lived in Portugal for 15 years and knows Lisbon like the back of his hand. He’s traveled to more than 40 countries, and loves sharing his city and culture with Remote Year travelers.
