“Sumaria” – Something New and Juicy in Alfama

Sumaria, Alfama, Lisboa


Climbing Lisbon’s steep hills is always rewarded with a viewpoint, the ancient castle, or a café, but along the way you’ll likely want to take it slow and rest from time to time. If you find yourself climbing the hill from the cathedral towards the castle, now you have a fresh and juicy new way to recover some of your energy just before you reach the Santa Luzia viewpoint. It’s called “Sumaria” and it opened this month in a tiny space offering freshly squeezed fruit juices which you can grab and take to enjoy sitting at the viewpoints or the castle just a few steps away. Each juice costs €2.50 and there is always a special “juice of the day” for €2.20. You can choose from orange, grape, melon, watermelon, pear, papaya, apple, pineapple, among other fruits which can be squeezed alone or in a combination of a few. Other choices include €3 smoothies or a €1 lemonade, or a special apple and ginger mix which is my personal favorite.
The exact address is Largo do Limoeiro, 13, but all you need to know is that it is the street through which tram 28 rattles through, up from the cathedral towards the Alfama viewpoints and the castle.
