Tour description

Come to know Lagos in a different, creative and entertaining way.

Cobbled streets, tiles, "arrepiados", walls, urban art, a caravel, baroque, beach, a fortress...

Discover our imaginary friend Isabela, the girl from Lacobrigo who will accompany us to visit her city.

We are now in the Roman quarter, the hustle and bustle of its people preparing the "garum" that they will send throughout the Mediterranean, Isabela stunned by the arrival of the first slaves, the same girl engrossed contemplating the gleaming gold of the baroque altarpieces of the Church of Saint Anthony.

Isabella is there, intrigued and expectant, watching the caravels leave for magical places yet to be discovered... Now walk through the cobbled streets, with white houses, wicker baskets, cork crafts , a neighbor is busy watering the plants in his cool interior patio , the smell of sardines, fish cooked calmly and with the know-how of generations of fishermen.

Isabela approaches the beach, on the other side the haughty wall and the imposing fortress, the dreaming girl, the warmth of the sunset reflected in her eyes, proud of her sea of ​​crystalline waters of brilliant blues adorned with thousands of turquoise tones. …

The passion of living in this city, bustling at times, calm and silent at others, Isabela sighs and smiles.

Go ahead and follow the girl with the red hat, she has a city to share.

Nati was a very nice, enthusiastic and competent guide who gave lots of interesting information and answered every question to the fullest. I enjoyed that she filled the different places of Lagos with historical details. The 2-hours walk felt like minutes. Thank you, Nati, for the exciting walk through Lagos - it was a great experience!
