Tour description

We will meet at 11:00, and we will begin our tour from the Commerce Square, located on the place occupied by the Royal Palace before the earthquake of 1755. From the most important square in the city we will walk to the City Hall, and admire its We can see the regency period and the First Portuguese Republic from a new perspective. The World War will be a very present theme in our tour, especially when we stroll through the emblematic Largo de Corpo Santo, the Largo de Sao Paulo and Calle Rosa. In the latter we will discover the stories of the spies who inhabited Lisbon during the contest. It will be like going back to 1942! We will change the history for gastronomy in the Ribeira Market, where we will be able to cross corridors full of stalls with the most typical products of Portuguese gastronomy. We will continue our walk until we meet the Elevador da Bica, one of the oldest funiculars in the city. We will feel like locals while we see how it ascends slowly between the old houses of the Rua da Bica towards the Barrio Alto. Already in the avant-garde Barrio Alto, and while we walk through its streets full of shops and bars, we will talk about the historical and urban development of the city. In addition, we will walk to the Mirador de San Pedro de Alcántara, from which we can enjoy one of the best views of the city: the Alfama neighborhood, the Castle of San Jorge and the Tagus will be at our feet. Between small squares and narrow streets we will arrive at the Church of San Roque, a baroque hermitage built in the year 1506. Upon leaving, we will walk along the Largo da Trindade, and we will be able to admire the spectacle of tiles that form its facades. A journey full of colors! We will stop at Luis de Camões Square, and when we cross it we will have left the Barrio Alto behind to walk the bohemian streets of Chiado. It is a joyful neighborhood where we can get lost among the cafes and casual bookstores that fill its streets. Walking between buildings of the eighteenth century we will arrive at our last stop: the Theater and the Opera of San Carlos, built in 1792 on an old opera house.
