About the Tour

The route begins in praça Figueira the pulping heart of the historic city and continues towards the Cathedral and the church of Sant' Antonio. Afterwards we will enter the ancient Arab quarter in Alfama, the only one left standing after the earthquake.

The tour includes short breaks to taste the gingja, the typical cherry liqueur that the women of Alfama produce in their homes. Then it will be the time of Castel of Sao Jorge, the quarter of Graca and of the homonymous panoramic viewpoint from where you can see the most beautiful view of the city.

At this point we descend into the last historic district of Mouraria which together with Alfama saw the birth of the fado of Maria Severa and Amalia Rodrigues.

The tour ends with a stop at the Casa do Alentejo for a visit, and an optional tasting at the typical tavern inside. The tour aims to be fun, cultural and with full of anecdotes about the city. 

A tour of Lisbon's popular neighborhoods in search of the places sung by Fernando Pessoa and Antonio Tabucchi. Suitable for people who know how to combine style and lightness, culture and research of the most authentic traditions.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: Metro red line, Rossio stop (Praça Figueira)
