About the tour

For those seeking to explore the true cultural center of Lisbon, the Mouraria tour should be on your list!

With the Portuguese Christian control in Lisbon in the XII century, the Moorish community was confined to a neighborhood just outside the city walls, thus creating Mouraria. A religious minority community back then, nowadays Mouraria continues to thrive as a multi-ethnic community full of rich history and different cultures.

As you walk through the narrow streets, our expert guide will uncover the past of this neighborhood and its people. Only in Mouraria will you encounter the birthplace of Fado and Maria Severa, understanding the roots of Fado music.

Detached from the hustle and bustle of Lisbon’s center, Mouraria is a small village within a city! This friendly neighborhood gives you the chance to visit two of Lisbon’s many viewpoints, offering breathtaking panoramic views of this beautiful city and the all-important photo opportunity!

Off the typical tourist track, Mouraria is an experience you definitely don’t want to miss!

I really liked this tour, I would definitely recommend doing it. It is more than worth your time. I really liked the narrow streets, it is a district where I normally would not go by myself so I am glad that I chose to do this tour. The viewpoint in the end was just simply amazing. Really recommend this tour!!
