Tour highlights

Comércio square

Comércio square is one of the largest squares in Europe and, for many centuries, the main entrance to city of Lisbon. With a marvelous view of the Tagus River, Praça do Comércio extends to the unmissable Cais das Colunas. This square has many terraces and restaurants where you can enjoy the landscape and the Lisbon’s pace. To get to the city center, you must go through the Arc de Triomphe and walk along Augusta street.

Baixa

The Baixa neighborhood is the ‘heart’ of Lisbon. Baixa had to be rebuilt with neoclassical-style buildings and innovative anti-seismic structures after the massive earthquake of 1755. Its streets are covered in a Portuguese style pavement made with small flat pieces of stones arranged in a pattern or image like a mosaic.

Saint George’s Castle

Located on the highest hill of Lisbon and with a marvelous view over the city, saint George’s Castle is one of the most emblematic monuments of Lisbon and home of the Portuguese royalty for centuries. This military fort was built by the Moors in the 11th century and was conquered by the first king of Portugal Dom Afonso Henriques on October 25th of 1147.

Saint Dominic’s church

The 13th century old Saint Dominic’s church was the first Dominican church of Lisbon. For centuries it was the most important church in Lisbon where beautiful royal weddings and christenings were held. The church has been destroyed on several occasions by earthquakes and a brutal fire in 1959. Its impressive interior decorated in gilded woodcarvings and valuable paintings were destroyed. It reopened in 1994 and the marks of the fire were left exposed on the church walls giving it a unique and fascinating atmosphere.

Alfama

The neighborhood of Alfama is set in a labyrinth of narrow streets and winding alleys. It is the oldest quarter of the city and the birthplace of Fado, the typical song of Lisbon, classified as Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
