Have you ever thought sailing on the Tagus inside a floating work of art? Trafaria Praia gives you the opportunity of admire an exhibition of a Portuguese artist, Joana Vasconcelos, and at the same time discover Lisbon from the river side. All the exterior is made with hand painted tiles. This ‘floating work of art’ represents Portugal as a whole, through the needlework, cork and tiles.
