What To Expect

Miradouro das Portas do Sol
The story of Lisbon is inseparable from the river, that large gateway to the Atlantic ocean. This square is a perfect starting point to explore the city as it offers sweeping views over the Castle Hill and the Old Town framed by the broad mouth of the Tagus river.

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Miradouro de Santa Luzia
The happy coexistence of exquisite ceramic tiles (azulejos) from different ages and styles in the two platforms of this balcony is a very good metaphor of Lisbon (mixed) identity.

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Igreja de Santiago
Admire the Baroque St James church, where the Portuguese "Camino" to the holy city of Compostela stars, but explore also quaint Largo do Contador, with residential houses prior to the 1755 tsunami

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Beco do Recolhimento
Explore the residential half of The Castle of St. George, including the brand new Recolhimento garden and belvedere, opened to east side of town

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Museu de Lisboa - Teatro Romano
Ruins of the first monument properly built in Lisbon under Caesar Augustus rule (end of the first century BC), expanded in AD 57, when it was dedicated to Nero. Buried and forgotten, the archeological site was only reopened to the public in 2015.

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Lisbon Cathedral
First and only remaining Romanesque monument in town, the Lisbon Cathedral is half a church, half a fortress. Some say it's almost a new medieval cathedral, as it was radically rebuilt in the 30's of the 20th century.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Church of St. Anthony
Tradition says this church was built on top of the room where Saint Anthony was born. That room is now the crypt of the church (rebuilt after the 1755 tsunami), one of the most popular in Lisbon. But is St. Anthony or St. Vincent the Lisbon favorite saint?

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Lapides das Pedras Negras
Amazing Roman tombstones embedded on the walls of a XVIII century residential building

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Praca do Comercio (Terreiro do Paco)
Lisbon finest square is open to the river (and the sea) and was completely rebuilt after the 1755 tsunami like a theatrical setting. Admire the Column Pier, King José statue and the monumental Arch, plus the many events staged all year round on the square.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Conceicao Velha
One of the finest facades in the late Portuguese Gothic style, full of Royal symbols, Grotescos and Esoteric suggestions

Fab Walking Tour!

Thanks Luis for the fab (and very interesting) walking tour. Your knowledge of the area and associated history knows no bounds. We also much appreciated your recommendations for lunch and dinner. Perfect!
Art + History + Culture + Quirks!

Luis is a great tour guide. His "other life" as a travel journalist and photographer gives his tours a different feel than others I've taken -- more integration of art and culture with history and general points of interest. He points out interesting visual aspects that others might pass by. He shared stories about past and present neighborhood regular people, reminding us Lisbon isn't a museum or tourist haven, but a real working-living city.
Luis is super knowledgeable!

Une extraordinaire virée à pied pour remonter dans le temps de la construction de la ville et la découverte de son passé ( architecture , amoncellement de la ville ).Un guide passionné qui détient de nombreuses anecdotes.
Luiz was a great tour guide and we...

Luiz was a great tour guide and we walked up and down Alfarma. We stopped for coffee and our tour wound up lasting close to 4 hours but it went by so quickly. Luiz as very knowledgable and was prepared for any questions we asked. We would highly recommend this trip.
