Take your mark, get set, go… to the Museu Nacional do Desporto, which is commemorating the centenary of Portugal’s participation in the Olympic Games.
When visiting Lisbon and wandering in Praça dos Restauradores, take your mark, get set and go to the Museu Nacional do Desporto, opened in 2012, to commemorate the centenary of Portugal’s participation in the Olympic Games.
In fact, there is an exhibition area in the museum totally dedicated to the Olympic legacy, with posters from the various events and replicas of the torches, official equipment and medals won by Portuguese athletes.
You can also see objects and a wide variety of memorabilia belonging to the most famous Portuguese sports people: Eusébio’s golden boot, the yellow shirt won by the cyclist Joaquim Agostinho, amongst many others.
Portuguese sport’s “lap of honour” awaits you at this exhibition, and the best thing is that you don’t even have to train to find and visit this museum: it’s right in the historic centre of Lisbon.
