Tour description

(Available only on the 25th of April)

Exclusive walking tour to learn how Portugal got into its dictatorship: the beginning of a Political dictatorship, the most important prisoners, the jail tortures, the way to escape the censorship, the role of women, and the conspiracies against the dictator. On April 25th, Portugal lived a tense day when the military decided to perform a coup d'etat and expel the dictator, leading Portugal to Democracy.

On that day, the whole country woke up without knowing what was happening on the streets of Porto and Lisbon but showing so much courage, Portuguese people went to support the military. On that day, after 48 years, Portugal was free again.

Join us on this beautiful day - the 25th of April - to learn about the Red Carnation Revolution.
