What you can expect

Come with me and explore the oldest district of Lisbon, with its picturesque labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares, difficult to discover by the non-locals.

We begin the route at one of the most emblematic and biggest squares in Europe - Praça do Comércio (Trader's Square), and I will tell you the history of this city since the Phoenician period, through the Golden Era of the Discoveries; the 1755 Great Earthquakes and its consequences in the city; and we'll plunge in Alfama, and in its history dating from Roman times until today.

3000 years of Lisbon's history in 3 hours!

Alfama is also the neighborhood where Fado was born, sung by its inhabitants of humble and popular origins.

It will be an unforgettable and unique experience that only with a local you will dare to discover.

Come and enjoy this fascinating tour with me.
