About the Tour

Join me on a walking tour through some of Lisbon's most historic neighbourhoods. I’ve been a tour guide here for over five years and I love this city because each neighbourhood has its own story and character.
We start the tour in downtown Lisbon, with a pragmatic statesman and an earthquake that shook the city to its core. We’ll end it in Graça, with a sweeping view of the city and harbour below. Along the way, we'll pass colourful mosaics, regal squares and captivating street art.

A few of the highlights you can look forward to are:

• Discovering where our hidden churches come from
• Hearing about tolerance in São Domingos Square
• Finding an interesting blend of tradition and multiculturalism in Mouraria
• Discovering Fado music
• Relaxing in the Garden of Cerca where you can catch your breath before our final breathtaking stop.

Tips

Places to stop along the way

''São Domingos'' church, ''Graça church, ''Tasca do Jaime'' if you happen to be there on a Saturday or Sunday afternoons. They have fado music performances.

Best time of day

It can be made at any time of the day but I will recommend in the afternoon if you don't want to miss the sunset in Lisbon's highest viewpoint!

Precautions

As in any other city, be aware of pickpockets. Bring comfortable shoes and water.
