Free Walking Tour of Lisbon

The free tour of Lisbon will start at the indicated time at the obelisk in Praça dos Restauradores.  After a brief introduction to the capital of Portugal, we'll start our walk by the statue of the Monumento al Calceteiro, dedicated to the workers in charge of maintaining the Portuguese artistic pavement.

Afterwards, we'll continue our walk along other highlights of Lisbon's city centre such as the Casa do Alentejo and the Santo Domingo Church. Lisbon was also the scene of events which shook the whole country, such as the 1755 earthquake, or the Carnation Revolution which put an end to the reign of the 'New State' and its dictator Salazar. The tour passes through the remains left by these historic episodes. We'll continue to the famous Praça Rossio, where we'll admire the monumental façade of its railway station and the Jewish Memorial.  

Next, we'll make our way to the area of the Convent do Carmo and the Santa Justa elevator. This famous lift dates all the way back to 1902! Then, we'll continue our route in the Chiado district. In this iconic site we'll you'll learn all about the famous figures of Portuguese literature:  Luís Vaz de Camões and Fernando Pessoa. These literary giants wrote about Portugal's role as one of the world's major powers.

Then we'll continue through the streets of Barrio Alto, the most bohemian part of the city until we arrive at Chiado. This neighbourhood is famously linked with literature. In Chiado, we'll also stop at the Bertrand shop, the oldest bookshop in the world. This landmark has even been recognised by the Guinness Book of Records

Finally, we'll take a walk along Rua Augusta, where we'll pass under its emblematic monumental arch, and, after a journey of approximately two hours and 45 minutes, we'll conclude the free tour in the central Plaza del Comercio.

The tour will end around Praça do Comércio.
