Overview of the tour in Lisbon

We will leave from Rossio Square, the heart of the city, and head up to explore the classic neighborhoods of Chiado and Princípe Real and the bohemian neighborhood of Bairro Alto, while bypassing beautiful churches such as S. Domingos (XIII century), the Carmo Convent (XIV century) and S. Roque (XVI century), as well as seeing some Neo-Manueline architecture, intriguing azulejos ´tiles´, and trendy cafés and restaurants.

We will cover in this tour:

The earthquake of 1755 and the reconstruction of the city by Prime Minister Marquês de Pombal.
The Inquisition and persecution of Jews and Muslims.
The restoration wars and their consequences.
Ulysses and the mythological foundation of Lisbon.
Santa Justa Elevador, Carmo Square, São Pedro de Alcântara Miradouro and much more.

A main difference between this proposal and other walking tours is that I want people to connect with each other and, after the tour is over, we can all share some drinks at a local bar

The tour can always be adjusted upon demand and weather conditions. The duration of the tour is approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes.

This activity includes:

  • Church of St. Dominic
  • Alcântara Residence
  • Carmo Convent
  • Teatro Nacional D. Maria II
  • Rossio Square South Fountain
