Recently we have highlighted the Sintra’s Tram from Sérgio Batista. Today’s we will highlight another portuguese historical vehicle from the same builder. The Lisbon’s Fado van is a vintage Fleur de Lys car model, that promotes the current culture events that takes place Lisbon.

Trams are an iconic mean of transportation of several cities across the globe, just like the ones we can find at San Francisco or Lisbon.
In my opinion, LEGO is missing these wonderful vehicles so I had proposed at LEGO CUUSOO a new city transportation set, based on my Lisbon tram MOCs.
The project is gaining more and more supporters each day. Than you very much! :)
Hello everyone! I’ve been very busy lately due to professional reasons but I’m back and to celebrate I would like to present one of the great constructions I’ve seen lately. Romão ans his students built the window of the Chapter house that belongs to the Convent of the Order of Christ at Tomar – Portugal, classified by UNESCO as World Heritage.
The Convent of the Order of Christ was originally built in 12th century as a Templar stronghold. After the Order of the Knights Templar was dissolved in the 14th century, the Portuguese branch of the order was turned into the Knights of the Order of Christ, which supported Portugal’s maritime discoveries of the 15th century.
Romão is, in my opinion, one of the best Portuguese builders, his portfolio includes the Cathedral of St. Macario.
