Tour description

Throughout the two hours that this fascinating tour lasts, we will reveal secrets that are hidden from the sight of travelers and Lisbon residents, and as the night envelops us in its darkness, we will delve into the oldest legends of the city and its most chilling crimes.

We will begin as always with Joseph I, who we will discover that, despite having survived the famous earthquake, he was a victim of his family's curse. We will also take a new look at Plaza de Comércio and Baixa, revealing the hidden meanings left by their Masonic architects.

Next we will pass through the old medieval Jewish quarter to enter the Kabbalistic mystique of the Sephardic community, and we will reveal Lisbon's unknown connection with the Holocaust. After this we will ascend towards Chiado and Bairro Alto, where we will talk about the secret societies and the witches that once inhabited those streets.

We will end our tour at the magnificent Sao Pedro de Alcántara viewpoint, where we will tell the story of Diogo Alves, a ruthless murderer who terrorized Lisbon and whose head is still preserved.

El resumen de la ruta en la página es bastante más interesante que el free tour. El guía era muy simpático y se esforzaba por conectar con el grupo, pero el free tour quedó muy pobre. Cuenta leyendas de Lisboa pero no aprofundiza en absoluto y no lo relaciona con los sitios que se visitan, podría haberlo inventado todo fácilmente. La ruta no tiene un hilo conductor. La visita era de 2 horas pero en realidad no llegó a una hora y media. La idea del free tour es buena pero tiene que pulirse muchísimo.
