|A view of Lisbon, Portugal|
GUEST BLOG / By Sofia Couceiro, CNN Travel news producer-- Many say Lisbon has a special light. I completely agree, there is something magical about the sun hitting the city’s white cobblestone streets and its beautiful tiled buildings. I should know, I grew up there!

This typical family-owned Lisbon shop was established in 1930 and sells all kinds of fish cans. As a Lisboeta, I can tell you there is nothing we love more than canned fish. I personally recommend the “Prata do Mar: Atum”, a tuna can to die for. Conserveira de Lisboa has mastered the art of canning the sea and has all kinds of fish to sample including: sardines, mackerel, octopus and cod. While you wait you can enjoy its cool vintage look and watch employees hand-pack the cans. Check out the Conserveira de Lisboa website to learn more about traditional Portuguese fish canning from true masters of the craft.
