What you'll do

This is a guided walking tour that shows Lisbon historic center through the most significant places in the main neighbourhoods; Bairro Alto, Chiado, Baixa, Mouraria, Alfama and Graça. It's a mixed experience of urban and decorative arts, well known architectural gems and hidden ones, great views, urban understanding of the city development and social/historic sites and meanings. We start at S. P. Alcântara panoramic view, going next into São Roque church and Bairro Alto, a XV century pre-fabricated neighbourhood, where bohemian life, religion and popular culture cross. Carmo Square comes next, interesting for its beauty and accumulation of testimony. From the 1755 earthquake seen today in Carmo ruins to the 25th of April peaceful end to the dictatorship. Going down the stairs to Baixa, where Rossio square, Praça da Figueira, São Domingos church and traditional Ginginha licor shops will be the stoping points. Next, into Mouraria, for the Fado epicentre, the mythical Severa square in the medieval fabric. After which a climb will be worthy to enter the hidden and beautiful Menino Deus church and to reach Graça, where the belvedere views, church and square will finish our walk.

Patrícia

I'm an architect, Phd student of urbanism and live in Lisbon. I'm very passionate about Lisbon; places, buildings and neighbourhoods. It's still a very mysterious city and because we always have so much in common my walks are talks. I like to reach guests personal interests and give you a starting point for further discoveries. That's why I have set the walk as I did, it's a base to understand the discrete magnificence of Lisbon.
