Right after we booked the trip I was scouring the internet for fun things for us to do. I've been to Portugal many times, so I was looking for something different and memorable for this trip. I realized that Eddie Veder was headlining the Super Bock Super Rock concert while we were there - and I knew C's mind would be blown.
The night we were going to the concert we had booked a room at a nearby castle. Pousada de Palmela sits above the town of Palmela, about a half hour from Lisbon. The views of Setúbal and the Atlantic Ocean from the top of the castle are incredible.
The concert was held in Alfarim, which ended up being a much farther cab ride than we had originally anticipated. Eddie Veder wasn't schedule to go on until 1:30 am... which ended up being more like 2:30 am after a bit of a rain delay.
We walked around to the different tents and saw a few of the other acts. SBSR is actually a three day long festival. People camped and stayed out in the woods all weekend - it was pretty wild. The rain shower that past through didn't phase us, since we were under a tent watching some female rappers. It was also one of only two rain storms during our trip, which we really can't complain about.
We had a blast, and ended up not making it back to the castle until 4:30 am. Exhausting, considering we never stay up that late at home. A really fun and different experience/memory we won't soon forget.
